Kilkeel Cottages, County Down

Kilkeel is the principle town in the Kingdom of Mourne. It lies between the Mountains of Mourne and the Irish Sea. Before the 13th century the name for the area was Boirche but became known as Mourne when the Clan Mc Mahon came from County Monaghan and settled in the area bringing the name of their own district, Cre-Mourne, with them.

 

Visit the harbour, which is Northern Ireland’s largest fishing fleet. While away the hours by watching the boats load up supplies and ice before setting sail or watch for their return after a fishing expedition and landing at the fish market. The harbour is a hive of activity with fishermen mending nets, loading supplies, or carrying out maintenance. The harbour is also home to a couple of seals, which can be seen swimming around the harbour on the look out for a handy supper.
