Guided walking Mourne Wall Challenge
Hit the wall
The Mourne Wall is one of the most famous man-made structures in Ireland.
This challenging walk will circumnavigate the full 19 miles of the wall. Along the way you will learn why, when, and how it was built and get a feel for the true grit and effort it would have taken to build so many years ago. With stunning views from the summits of the highest mountain in Northern Ireland, this is without doubt one of the top walks in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
