Come and explore the Mourne Mountains and Northern Ireland with OutdoorLads. This event is THREE NIGHTS over the early May bank holiday weekend.

Voted the ‘Best Walking Destination’ in Northern Ireland lies the atmospheric Mourne Mountains. They are the the highest and most dramatic mountain range in Northern Ireland and it’s summits are crowned by granite Tors. 

There'll be a mix of high and low level walks on offer over the weekend and depending on interest there's loads of other things to do including watersports, mountain biking or even Sea Safari in nearby Strangford Lough. 

Well be staying at Meelmore Lodge which is nestled in the heart of Mourne Mountains. After our days out and about we'll have chance to kick back and relaxing in the evening. We'll have the place to ourselves, and have a bit of a mix of home cooked meals in the evenings.

Payment: You can pay in installments for this trip should you wish. Please contact the office for details and to book on

Transport: You'll need to make your own arrangements to Northern Ireland. The options are a ferry or by air, both to Belfast. Ferries go from Liverpool Birkenhead to Belfast several times as day. There are also ferries from Cairnryan in Scotland to Belfast, and also a route from Douglas on the Isle of Man.

You can also fly to Belfast from several UK airports. The website has some good information on routes available for both ferries and flights. 

We will have a minibus available for the group to use whilst we are there, and we'll arrange a meeting point(s) in Belfast on the first day and use the minibus to transport people back to our accommodation - probably two pick-ups, due to numbers. 

We will confirm final pick-up timings closer to the time. If you are keen to bag a travel bargain, aim for a morning arrival and departure mid afternoon onwards. If you are flying then Belfast City is a better choice. It is very close to the city which means you may have chance to explore a bit of Belfast itself. 

We'll be able to use the minibus throughout our stay to explore the area and to take us to the starting point of some of our walks, and the cost of it is included in the price of this event. One Monday we may travel back to earlier in the day to give opportunity for a bit of touristing in Belfast - there's lots to see.

Dogs: This event is not suitable for dogs.
