The Mourne Mountains also called the Mournes or Mountains of Mourne, are a granite mountain range in County Down. The Mournes is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has been proposed as the first national park in Northern Ireland. The area is partly owned by the National Trust and sees a large number of visitors every year.
See the Gothic and Classic collide at Castle Ward, an eccentric 18th century mansion and estate looking out over the tranquil waters of Strangford Lough in County Down. Walk or cycle along the Lough trail or through the sheltered woodlands and spot a host of wildlife and rare plants. Discover something new around every corner on the 34km of trails from Temple Water, the stunning ornamental canal to Audley’s Castle, a 15th century tower.
The house itself is a ‘cabinet of curiosity’ with an unusual split personality due to its Gothic meets Classical décor. Round the day off with a freshly baked scone in our tearoom or browse the gift shop and pick up a bargain at the second-hand bookshop. You can also head out on the Lough in a canoe, hire a bike, and build a raft with Clearsky Adventure.
•The farmyard complete with ducks, chickens and pygmy goats
•The 34km of trails that loop throughout the estate – rent bikes from the Clearsky Adventure Centre and get exploring.

Housed in an iconic, six-floor building, Titanic Belfast is located in the heart of Belfast, right beside the historic site of this world-famous ship’s construction.
The Titanic experience takes you through nine galleries, telling the story of RMS Titanic, from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to her famous maiden voyage and tragic end. The galleries are innovative and interactive with many features including diving to the depth of the ocean to explore where RMS Titanic now rests. The Titanic story is told at Titanic Belfast in a fresh and insightful way.
Visitors can now also experience three new galleries, which capture the excitement of launch day, as well as The Maiden Voyage gallery, which transports visitors from four embarkation ports, Belfast, Southampton, Cherbourg and Queenstown (now known as Cobh) to Titanic’s deck promenade. Guests can not only see and hear the ocean and feel the ships engines rumbling on board at the Palm Court Café but can also meet Fredrick Dent Ray, a dining room steward and survivor, utilising technology used in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion and Universal Studios Florida’s Hogwarts Express attraction. The Maiden Voyage gallery also includes an original first class luncheon menu dated April 14, 1912, as well as the last letter ever to be written on board the Titanic
