Description

The stunning Mourne Mountains and Ring of Gullion region of County Down is a veritable open-air playground.

Shrouded in magic and majesty, the Mourne Mountains and Ring of Gullion are without a doubt some of the most picturesque in Ireland. Filled with dizzying peaks, rolling valleys, tranquil forests and golden coastline. From mountains to the coast, the reefs to the woodlands, the region is easily accessible and accommodates both a relaxed pace or a full-on adrenalin rush, combined with clean air and stunning scenery. A warm welcome awaits within the many fine pubs, restaurants and accommodation.
