      1. Family Breaks
        Whoever it was that put this place together had children in mind - just look at it. The Mountains of Mourne are like something straight out of a children’s novel. Indeed, they inspired a certain C.S. Lewis to take to his desk and weave his magic in Narnia.
      2. Wellness Weekends
        The famous singer, Van Morrison, once said that in life “there’s always got to be a struggle”. We’re big fans of the great man in these parts, but we like to think you can give your soul a wee rest from time to time.
      3. Walking Holidays
        There are few places on the island better suited to the walker than Visit Mourne. With almost one hundred different mountain peaks, a feast of forest trails and a seemingly endless choice of river, lake and seaside strolls, you’ll need a good strong pair of shoes to tackle everything this place has to offer.
      4. Image of people playing golf at Montalto Estate, Ballynahinch, County Down
