An ancient Egyptian Obelisk erected in the year 1826 on a hill in the village of Rostrevor, County Down. Treating visitors to uninterrupted views of the Carlingford Lough and the Mourne Mountains, a visit to the Ross Monument is the best way to explore this area’s natural beauty. This monument was built in the honor Major General Robert Ross who fought in Europe as well as in America's Second War of Independence. The wonderful surrounding greenery, the spectacular views of the mountains and the deep-blue water make this place a must-visit spot in Newry.

Highly visible from the coast road, parking opposite. Not good for wheelchair access due to the steps. Further monument to Robert Ross-of-Bladensburg in the Church of Ireland in Rostrevor and immediate relatives buried in Kilbroney Old Churchyard north of the village
A lovely monument with hidtory. Worth a visit and lovely scenery around it.
As an American, couldn't enjoy a monument to anyone who burned down the White House just on principle. Nice view of the water though 👍
A great relaxing place with great views
Be careful crossing the very busy road, you could get totalled in a blink.
