Kilkeel is a busy seaside town and the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Mourne. With a population of over 7,000, Kilkeel is a bustling place located 18 miles from Newry and 13 miles from Newcastle, County Down.

Kilkeel has for many years welcomed global industry, including aircraft component manufacturer Rockwell Collins, a huge employer within the locality. Kilkeel is a very busy fishing port with the establishment of the harbour in the 1850’s. The Harbour Estate has grown significantly since then and developed right up to the recent introduction of pontoons, which has increased the capacity for smaller fishing boats. The harbour at Kilkeel thrives with the province’s largest fleet, and is busiest during landings and in the fishmarket auction time. There are fish-processing factories, trawler repair and new build facilities dotted around the harbour, making it one of the regions most vibrant hubs for commerce and trade.
