Kilbroney Vintage Car Show Biggest Yet

327 Replies

Kilbroney Vintage Car Show is an absolute gem of a motoring event in the annual show calendar.  Not only is it situated in the stunning Kilbroney Forest Park near Rostrevor, overlooked by the Mourne Mountains, but it proudly boasts being the largest classic car show in Europe.

Organised by the Kilbroney Vintage Show Committee and Newry Lions Club, the event took place on Saturday past and played host to over 1500 vintage vehicles, live music and children’s entertainment.

Some of the scale of this enormous event is captured in our 200+ photo gallery below.

It really is one of the best shows over here. Such a wide range of metal on show!! Will get my form posted off this week and hopefully get the Coupe S on display again.

Best show about by far. Will be there in the mini. For anyone that hasn’t been before and entering a car. Get there early or be prepared to queue!

I always try to be there before 10. I'd rather be in early, get parked up and get a brew on instead of sitting in traffic boiling.

We left ballymoney at 7:00am 2 years ago and we sat near an hour in traffic on that coast road into kilbroney forrest park. The year before i considerd abandoning my car and walking the rest.
