Sightseeing
On top of Slievegullion there's the reward of a mountain lake and a Neolithic passage tomb which predates the pyramids. It more than equals the better-known Newgrange, especially during the winter solstice. 10 min drive from the cottage. Lovely hikes and a scenic mountain drive.

In 100 hectares of meadows and woods lies Derrymore House, built at the end of the 18th century in a quaint gentrified vernacular style. You’ll know what this means when you see the property, now managed by the National Trust. In the fashion of a “cottage orné”, popular in the period, Derrymore House has a thatched roof made from Shannon reeds. This belies the high status of the building, which was a summer lodge for Newry’s MP Isaac Corry. For £2 you can go in to view the drawing room, or amble for free through the blissful grounds, which make up the final stretch of the Ring of Gullion Way.
