The view from the Flagstaff, is one of the most breathtaking in Ireland or anywhere else. On one side is Northern Ireland and on the other is the Republic of Ireland. 

From the rock on which this photo was taken you have an uninterrupted view of Carlingford Lough and the Mourne Mountains. In bygone days when sailors had not modern advanced navigational aids it is said that they took their bearings and gauged the wind from a flag overlooking the estuary from this spot. There are others who maintain that the flag was raised to warn would be smugglers of approaching customs men.

From the Flagstaff you can see across to the Mountains of Mourne and the famous Cloc Mor ( the big stone ). Looking down the estuary you can see the majestic Narrow Water castle standing sentinel at the mouth of the Newry river and further down the lough the volcanic Slieve Foy dominates the horizon on the right (in fact it looks like it's currently active in this photo!). Down below Warrenpoint town sits alongside the sea.
