The Mourne Mountains (Beanna Boirche in Irish Gaelic) is a granite mountain range located in County Down in Northern Ireland. Situated in the heart of an environment as wild as it is fabulous, these mountains attract thousands of visitors every year, lovers of hiking and climbing!

Visit the Mourne Mountains

Explore the mountains by the Wall Mourne

The highest mountain in the massif is Slieve Donard. At 849 metres high, it is particularly popular with walkers, cyclists and climbers. There are a few circuits to reach the summit: these do not always require an excellent level of walking.

To get an overview of Mourne Montains as a whole, we recommend the famous Wall Mourne. This is a dry stone wall that crosses the Mourne Mountains for 35 km. Of course, it is not possible to cross it from one end to the other in one day, and you will need good equipment and a good sporting condition, but the spectacle is worth the detour! It offers marvellous views of the region, and will leave you speechless in front of the beauty of its panoramas! (Don’t forget your camera!)

You will also be able to observe an exceptional fauna and flora. You will find up to 3 different species of heather (Erica tetralix, Erican cinerea, and Calluna vulgaris), specimens of colorful bellflowers (Campanula rotundifolia), and many other plants of great beauty.
