    The White Witch has put a curse on the land. It is always winter and never Christmas in Narnia – be aware, she has the power to turn you into stone.  Don’t eat any “enchanted” Turkish Delight!

    Pick up a Picnic in Visit Mourne

    For the family that likes to get out, about and into nature, Visit Mourne is quite possibly one of the top destinations in the world. Not only does the beauty of the diverse natural landscape encourage exploration and inspire wonder, but the normally benign climate and low population density means the air is always clean and fresh.  But don’t stop the plans there, dine al fresco.  Pack your own picnic, pick up a pre-made picnic platter or experience freshly prepared picnics delivered to your door. There’s plenty of choice!
