Route outline (key)
B8 Newry - Kilcoo
Hilltown Road

The B8 forms a loop off the A25 in south County Down.

The road starts on the A25 at a roundabout on the eastern side of Newry and heads southeastwards, soon entering open country. After passing to the north of Derryleckagh Lake (which is invisible from the road) the B8 crosses the B7 at Mayobridge and then the B25 at Hilltown.

After crossing the River Bann the B8 bends to the left. It heads northeastwards along Hilltown Road to end back on the A25 to the west of Kilcoo.

In general, the B8 route is preferred by traffic to the slightly longer route using the A25.
