Sunset on the Summit

27 September
Slieve Donard at 850m (2,789 ft) is the highest of the Mourne Mountains and the highest peak in Northern Ireland. Literally rising from the sea, the main access point starts in the seaside town of Newcastle and meanders alongside the Glen River to where it meets and follows the impressive Mourne Wall to the summit.

The views from the summit are extensive and on a clear day the views over the high Mournes, most of Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, Wicklow, Donegal, Wales and even Scotland can be breathtaking.

This year however we have something special to offer, Slieve Donard at sunset on 27th September. You will experience the hike up Slieve Donard accompanied by our fully trained guides in time to see the sunset. You will be amazed by the views across the country of street lights not to mention the moon and stars above. This really is an experience to be remembered. You will then make your way back down the mountain side, guided by the light from your head torch.

This year we are looking for even more teams and individuals from all over the province to sign up for this event. It is a great opportunity for companies to use as a team building exercise, but more importantly an opportunity help people in their local community.

On receipt of your registration We will send further details of the day and your fundraising pack.
NB. As we do not have exact location information, this is a map of the local area.
