Hill Walking and Rambling Holidays
This area is perfect for rambling and walking through the Mourne Mountains and Slieve Gullion, from short treks through way marked trails in Tollymore and Castlewellan Forest Parks or along the beach at Murlough to the climb to the top of Slieve Donard, the highest peak in Northern Ireland. The local tourist office in Newcastle can offer a pack of Mourne Walking routes for the lowland and coastal areas which mainly follow distinct paths. For more experienced walkers the high Mournes walking pack is also available. Visit www.walkni.com for more information on short, medium and long walks as well as downloadable maps and help in planning your trip.
