  3. Peter Rafferty (tour guide) with a tour group on The Mourne Mountains as part of the Men of the Mournes Embrace a Giant Spirit experience

    You could search high and low for a better spot in which to discover the joys of walking in Northern Ireland. Though you’re not likely to find one more inviting than the dramatic Mourne Mountains. With a winning combination of challenging peaks and gentle foothill strolls, this is a paradise for walkers of all levels. It’s a tempting area for foodies too with some fantastic restaurants along the way.

  5. Cave Hill mountain, overlooking Cave Hill Country Park and Belfast city with views across North Belfast towards Belfast Lough and the city centre.

    Belfast is a wonderful city for walkers. There’s always something new to discover and its compact size makes it an easy and inviting spot to explore on foot. Go just a little further afield though and you’ll find yourself in the tranquil Belfast Hills. Only minutes from the city, there are fantastic views of Belfast’s famous landmarks and some amazing walks and trails to investigate.

    Every parent talks about tearing the family away from their screens. Here in Northern Ireland we’re ready to introduce you and them to other screens altogether: the wonderful wide-screen wonders of walking in any or all of our six magnificent counties.

  7. Walkers Welcome accommodation
    As a walker or hiker, you may spot a ‘Walkers Welcome’ logo beside accommodation listings in your chosen destination. This is an easy way to let you know that the hotel, guesthouse, B&B or self-catering unit will pay particular attention to your walking or hiking needs.
  8. Couple walking their 2 dogs on Murlough Beach at Dundrum, County Down. Mist is blowing in from the water. Slieve Donard and the Mourne Mountains are visible though the mist in the distance.

    Is there anything more endearing than seeing the joy burst back and forth in a dog’s tail when the word “walkies” is uttered. Northern Ireland is all about the outdoors and if your pooch could pick a destination for that perfect getaway or dog walking weekend break, he’d probably pick here. With a ton of great walks, dog-friendly accommodation and places to chew more than just a bone, you and your four-legged friend are sure to have a great time on a dog walking weekend break in Northern Ireland.
