About

The Mourne Mountains are quiet now. It is a place to take in wide views of summits and spectacular valleys, to breathe deep and relax in the mountain atmosphere.

Expert mountain guide, Peter Rafferty shows you all this and more. He stretches your imagination as well as your legs and your horizons. He takes you back to the times when Mourne granite was highly sought-after and the mountains echoed with the sound of handpicks. He tells stories of local smugglers in their secret caves, and legends of the US military men who trained here before heading for the  Battlefields of the Second World War. Peter fills the quiet, empty mountains with stories.

Look out for his "Hike & Haffuns" and "Men of the Mournes" experiences, both of which are fantastic.
