    Pick up a Picnic in Mourne, Gullion and Strangford

    For the family that likes to get out, about and into nature, Mourne, Gullion and Strangford are quite possibly in 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!

    Rainy Day Things To Do in the Mourne Mountains and Ring of Gullion

    It has been known to rain in these parts from time to time and spills from the sky can happen quite suddenly. That said, while you should always prepare for showers, full length rainy days are rare. You will almost always get the chance to get out and into much of the great outdoors that Mourne, Gullion and Strangford have to offer. But if it does decide to pour down for the day, well we have that covered too.
