Ballyhafry and Beyond
This is a classic circular cycling route, easier cycled than said, that winds its way from the bustling seaside town of Newcastle, through the myriad of villages and townlands that decorate the northern foothills of the high Mournes.
The region is rich in culture, with the many place names offering insights into the natural, built and social heritage that defines both their past and present, including the 10th century Maghera site attributed to St Donard.
Allow yourself enough time to explore as this tour provides many tempting options and likewise, don’t be afraid to slow down and stop, a conversation along the way is almost inevitable.
