Walking Holiday on Northern Ireland’s Ulster Way on the Mourne Way
From Newcastle to Rostrevor on Carlingford Lough,
via The Mountains of Mourne

The Mourne Way is a 26 mile section of The Ulster Way, through the Mourne Mountains.
The walk starts from the popular seaside resort of Newcastle on Northern Ireland’s southeast coast and ends at Rostrevor on the banks of Carlingford Lough. Walking in the Mourne Mountains, the Mourne Way passes through river valleys, stunning mountains and fine woodlands. This area is rich in history, full of myth and legend of the smugglers who brought goods to the area from the Isle of Man.
