Walks in Northern Ireland. There’s no shortage of them. Whether you’re walking the Mourne Mountains or coastal paths along the Ard Peninsula there’s walks in Northern Ireland to suit everyones tastes.
1. Castlewellan Forest Park and Peace Maze
What we love about Castlewellan Forest Park is that it has so many different trails that are great for walkers of different levels. One of the world’s largest hedge mazes, Peace Maze is well worth a visit if you want something a bit tougher than a standard winter walk!
2. Peatlands Park, Dungannon
If you love to experience the varied and stunning wildlife that peatland and woodland habitats have to offer, Peatlands park could be the perfect location for your winter walk.and their varied wildlife. It’s a beautiful and relaxing place to walk for sure.
3. Cave Hill Country Park
Fancy a bit of a hike but don’t want to tackle a huge mountain? Cave Hill Country Park could be the ideal choice. The ascent to the top isn’t too taxing and you’ll be rewarded with views over the city. Remember to take a hat, gloves and a scarf as the wind gets quite chilly!
4. Downhill Beach, Castlerock
We love a winter beach walk and Downhill Beach definitely delivers. This beach is a fantastic walk whatever season you visit and you can stop by Mussenden Temple and Bishop’s Gate whilst you’re there!
5. Castle Ward Shore Trail
Castle Ward Shore Trail is a fantastic opportunity to spot some migrating birds and the shoreline is a beautiful sight to behold. Want to take the whole family? Castle Ward Shore Trail can be done at your own leisurely pace and there are even play areas for children to enjoy.
All of these beautiful walks are just a stone’s throw away from our range of holiday parks in NI so if you’re spending Christmas at your holiday home or you’re thinking about purchasing your very own second home, it’s too easy to enjoy a magical winter walk here.
