Castlewellan Forest Park
You will find plenty to do together at Castlewellan Forest Park. Built around a beautiful lake, the park features an outstanding collection of trees and shrubs in the National Arboretum, a number of scenic walking trails, 27km of mountain bike trails, an onsite multi-activity centre, a hedge maze and an equestrian centre.
The Silent Valley reservoir (left) in the Mournes is a stunning, man-made lake of water ringed by mountains, and famous locally for the sense of peace it exudes. Within the grounds of the reservoir, there are three walking routes, which enable visitors to enjoy the sights and unique atmosphere of the valley. Finish your visit with a walk around the interpretive centre and a warming coffee.
