SUPS & Sip
Join us at the Mourne Outdoor Festival for our SUP & Sip Experience… as we paddle our way to a thirst on the stunning Castlewellan Lake before retiring to Hillyard House to sample some awesome local Gins… how Saturdays should be!
From a warm welcome, to warm showers, including everything in between and after… we have you covered… from meeting your Guide at our Lakeside Centre, to receiving all the kit that you’ll need, including top of the range SUP Boards, Wetsuits, Buoyancy Aids, Paddles & accessories, full use of our centres changing/shower facilities and post paddle Gin sampling at Hillyard House.
As a guided experience, no previous experience of SUP Boarding is necessary, and you’re guaranteed an awesome time regardless… Simply Book & Go!
Afterwards, if you’re not already staying local, and you haven’t already quenched your thirst, or hunger for that matter, why not enjoy some local hospitality… this is entirely optional, however if you wish to plan ahead, check out our ‘Places to eat, drink & sleep’.
