This walk is a set alongside and across the border between the North and South of Ireland. A largely undiscovered area of outstanding natural Beauty.
This route is unique mix of three waymarked routes which have still to be discovered by the tourist. The 6000 year old Sand dunes of Murlough bay and beach walking is a nice lead into this cross border walk.
Follow forest tracks, passing location shoots for the ‘Game of Thrones’ and skirt through the foothills of the majestic Mountains of Mourne that sweep down to the sea to reach lovely Rostrevor.
The route then makes its way to the beautiful medieval cobble streets of Carlingford village sitting on the shore of Carlingford lough.
An historic mountain pass leads us towards South Armagh and the Ring of Gullion. This area of outstanding natural beauty is without doubt one of the most significant historical areas of Ireland. Evidence of this rich historical tapestry is all around with the concentration of megalithic monuments but is most prevalent when you meet the people themselves.
