Cycling

Two cyclists"A spectacular circular cycle route beneath the high Mournes, with beautiful views across countryside with patchwork fields and stonewalls leading to the Irish Sea" vividly describes one of this area's many scenic cycle trails.

Cycling offers the flexibility to set your own pace and explore at leisure the minor roads and laneways while passing through beautiful countryside. Explore the ancient stone monuments and early Christian heritage in and around the Ring of Gullion, or visit the 13th century fortress, Greencastle, and discover its charming history and legends.

Newry & Mourne is linked to the Sustrans Cycle Network via the Newry Canal Cycle Route.
