Northern Ireland Murals


There are almost 2000 murals in the six counties of Northern Ireland, depicting republican and loyalist beliefs, historical figures and increasingly, peace and respect. Some of the most famous are in Belfast and Derry such as the one below of Nationalist Bobby Sands.

Hiking


There are many wonderful walking trails and national parks in Ireland:

Aran Islands

 

The Aran Islands have a very similar geological landscape to that of the Burren.

 

On Inishmore a great walk would be from Kilronan to Dun Aengus and back. Do the loop through Gort na gCapall and then Teampall Chiarain.

 

There are many churches, temples, and lakes to see as well as the famous fort Dun Aengus and take a small detour to Dun Duchathair, less well known and smaller but just as impressive.

 

Dun Aongas

 

On Inisheer it’s best to walk around the coast from the settled north of the island to the desolate south and around the west. See sights such as as Caislean Ui Bhrian, the wreck of the Plassey, and Tobhar Fainne, a holy well.

Mourne Mountains

 

The Mourne Mountains are situated in the Southeastern corner of Northern Ireland. The mountains are high and quite steep but easily manageable for fairly fit walkers, with firm ground leading up the hills. Slieve Bearnagh is probably the highlight and the views are spectacular from the summit (739m).

 

Try the Mourne Wall challenge if you dare. It runs for around 35km across the Mourne Mountains. Some people walk around the wall for a challenge.

Comeragh Mountains

 

Walk to Coum Mahon or the Mahon Falls to enjoy the spectacular waterfall and the surrounding views. It’s a bit of a hard slog but well worth it.
