Destination Mournes Visitor Information
The stunning Mourne Mountains in the south east of Northern Ireland has coastal drives, hill walking, rock climbing, nature rambles, photography, canoeing, cycling, horse riding, bird watching, fishing and world class golf on offer to the visitor.
Did you know that the dramatic Mournes landscape was the inspiration for Belfast born author C.S. Lewis' magical "Kingdom of Narnia"?
From the mountains to the coast, the reeks to the woodlands, the Mourne region is easily accessible and accommodates both a relaxed pace or a full-on adrenalin rush, combined with clean air and stunning scenery.
Shrouded in magic and majesty, the Mourne Mountains are without a doubt the most picturesque in Ireland. The Mournes filled with dizzying peaks, rolling valleys, tranquil forests and golden coastline are ready and waiting to be discovered, enjoyed, experienced and never forgotten.
The Mourne region offers a host of activities and attractions for families, couples, groups of friends and visitors of any age, who want to get away from it all, explore unspoilt landscapes and enjoy a real sense of well-being. And, for those who prefer the amenities of the great indoors, a warm welcome awaits within the region’s many fine pubs, restaurants, spa facilities, villages and hotels where you can watch the world go by at your leisure.
