Picnic in Narnia
27557_Narnia Trail
27558_Narnia Trail

In the foothills of the Mourne mountains, overlooking Carlingford Lough, charming Rostrevor was CS Lewis’s inspiration for Narnia. This magical day features a sumptuous breakfast, before following the Narnia Trail in the company of Narnian characters up to a special picnic at the Cloughmore Stone, a possible inspiration for Aslan’s How.

This unique event will celebrate Rostrevor’s unique connection to the Chronicles of Narnia – it was a favourite holiday destination for author CS (Jack) Lewis – and the wonderful local produce of the area. The Narnian-themed breakfast will be held in the Rostrevor Inn, member of Taste of Ulster, and features delights like hot chocolate supplied by local chocolatiers NearyNogs of Newry, as well as other locally sourced food. CS Lewis was a visitor to this atmospheric 18th century building (which still boasts its original stone walls) when the pub was run by the Crawford family. The Rostrevor Inn will also prepare a Narnian-themed picnic.

The Narnian characters will re-enact key moments from the Narnian stories at the magical Narnia Trail that starts in Kilbroney Park, a giant’s step from the Rostrevor Inn, and extends up to the Cloughmore Stone, high above the Lough, a possible inspiration for Aslan’s How, where visitors will enjoy their picnic as the Narnian characters complete their Narnian scenes.

Locally sourced food will include breads, honey, cakes, fish and chocolate.

This event is part of the Narnia Festival to be held in Rostrevor Nov 18 and 19 2019.
