Rostrevor, a picturesque village, lies at the southern entrance to the Mournes and along the shores of Carlingford Lough. In 1612 Sir Edward Trevor married Rose Ussher, daughter of the Archbishop of Armagh and it is said that he named the village after his new young wife.
The village has a number of beautiful walks through Rostrevor Forest and Kilbroney Park. Rostrevor is an area of historical interest and has lots of associated folklore. On the slopes of Slieve Martin in Kilbroney Park you will find the ‘Big Stone’ (Cloc Mor, anglicized to Cloughmore). St Bronagh’s 6th Century Church and Bell and Giant Murphy’s Grave are also located in the village. The imposing Ross Monument on Shore Road was erected in 1826 (restored 2008) to honour Major General Robert Ross who fought in both Europe and America. It was also to celebrate a victory over the American forces at Bladensburg. Kilfeaghan Dolmen, situated approximately three miles from Rostrevor on the Kilkeel road, is a Neolithic portal tomb, approximately 5,000 years old. It is well worth a visit because of the massive capstone, which is estimated to weigh 35 tons and believed to be one of the biggest in Ireland. Recent excavations unearthed various bones and pottery.
