Devil's Coach Road


Embark on an Extraordinary Adventure in the Mournes!

Discover the breathtaking beauty of the Annalong Valley and its hidden treasures on an unforgettable journey through the Devil's Coach Road. This legendary loose gully, nestled on the slopes of Slieve Beg, offers a thrilling escapade like no other.

As you venture into the valley, you'll be mesmerized by the tranquil surroundings and awe-inspiring views of the majestic mountains that surround you. But beware, the ground in the gully itself is steep and challenging, requiring confidence and fearlessness in your own abilities.

Guided by a seasoned local expert, you'll explore the secrets of the Smugglers Caves, where the daring McNeilly's once smuggled brandy, wines, silks, and tobacco aboard their infamous boat, Mary Stuart. Hear captivating stories of their daring escapades and the epic battle that unfolded under the glow of a full moon.

The adventure continues as we traverse the foot of Slieve Lamagan, once a target for the American Navy during World War II. Feel the energy emanating from Cove Cave, surrounded by its magnificent granite walls, as you delve deeper into its mysteries.

After conquering smaller gullies and reaching the summit of Cove Mountain, you'll be ready to tackle the notorious Devils Coach Road. Brace yourself for an adrenaline-pumping experience that will leave you exhilarated and in awe of the rugged beauty of the Mournes.

Your safety is our utmost priority, with an experienced Mountain Leader guiding your every step. Immerse yourself in the rich history of the Mournes and let us take care of the rest.

Join us at Mourne Mountain Adventures for an awe-inspiring adventure that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Book now and unlock the extraordinary wonders of the Devil's Coach Road!
