Categories: What's OnThings To DoAutumn.

There’s something very special in the air in Visit Mourne now that the summer sun is ebbing away. You can feel the crisp autumn breeze, curl up at the crackling log fire and watch the bristling leaves, floating delicately towards the ground.  All this inspires us to immerse ourselves in the great outdoors.

There is so much Visit Mourne has to offer at this time of year.  Autumn is the perfect time of year to get out and enjoy Giant Adventures.

Explore the best locations on your bike and appreciate the autumn colours.  Take a walk through the forests and parks and enjoy the wide open spaces together with the fresh air.  Spend those high street vouchers in our many local shops or enjoy some family time together discovering all things autumnal.  Uncover Ireland's mountain of mystery in Slieve Gullion or loose yourself in one of Ireland's most exciting outdoor spaces in Castlewellan.

Experience the Great Outdoors

Autumn is the perfect time to get out and explore before the colder winter weather arrives.  Hire a bike at Life Adventure Centre or Clearsky Adventure Centre and head for the hills, remember not all bikes are powered by two wheels.

Escape to the forest and enjoy the expansive woodlands and dedicated parks. It doesn’t matter if you are an occasional rambler or a seasoned adventurer the trails in Visit Mourne are the perfect way to experience the unparalleled natural beauty of the Region.

If it's something off the beaten track with wonderful views you're after then check out (online) and check in (on the day) with East Coast Adventure.  Recharge the batteries with a glamping experience at a location perfect as a base for hiking, walking and mountain biking. Feeling energetic? Then pop your name down for the Castlewellan 10km Night Race and Charity Walk in Castlewellan.

Stay and Shop

Visit Mourne’s unique position means that people have been coming here on weekend shopping trips for years. Not only can shoppers pick up some great bargains from top international brands, they can also get the best of local craft and fashion in places that are experiences in themselves allowing you to create that memorable weekend away.

Family Time is the Best Time

Away from the crowds you can get back to nature.  Family stories are shaped around Strangford Lough
