Kilkeel is a small town in Count Down that sits on a plain south of the Mourne Mountains, and is the main fishing port on the Down coast.

During a visit why not explore the town and it's many independent shops or enjoy a walk around the harbour and along Kilkeel beach. For the more adventurous Kilkeel is ideally located to explore the scenic beauty of the Mourne Mountains, the Irish Sea coastline and the stunning beauty of Carlingford Lough.
