About

Hilltown is a small village within the townland of Carcullion (from Irish: Carr Cuilinn) in County Down, North of Ireland. Hilltown is the main village of the parish of Clonduff which contains the village and the rural areas around it at one end, and the rural enclave of Cabra at the other end of the parish. Hilltown has eight public houses in the high street, a legacy from 18th century smugglers who shared out their contraband here. The village has a livestock market on alternate Saturdays, and a large sale of rams in September. The Georgian market house opposite St John's parish church (1766) adjoins the old inn, the Downshire Arms. The weathervane on the pretty cupola is a fish, a reminder of the good fishing in the River Bann and its tributaries. The Mountains of Mourne are on our doorstep and offer fantastic walking and climbing experiences which are simply breathtaking.
Silent Valley is 11 miles away where you pass Spelga Dam. Castlewellan Country Park, Murlough Bay Nature Reserve are all nearby. Newcastle is about 12 miles away with its amusements, shops restaurants and Tollymore Forest Park. 20 miles away lies the delights of Downpatrick, home to St Patrick’s Visitor Centre and Grave, (a world Christian Heritage Site) between the two towns there are countless opportunities for horse riding, fishing, sailing, off-road driving, mountaineering and windsurfing.
