Ulster Way

The Ulster Way – a 625 mile (1000 km) circular long distance walking route around Northern Ireland.

Dating back to 1946 when Wilfrid Capper MBE had the inspiration to create a circular walking route taking in the six counties of Northern Ireland, the Ulster Way is one of the longest walking routes in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

In order to provide a high quality walking experience the revised Ulster Way was launched in 2009 and provides walkers with the opportunity to take in Northern Ireland’s spectacularly varied scenery, wonder at its wildlife and sample the local heritage.

Follow in the footsteps of Saint Patrick along the Lecale Way, discover the Mourne landscapes that inspired the Tales of Narnia, take in the tranquility of the Fermanagh Lakelands, and enjoy the rolling Sperrin Mountains and awe inspiring Giant’s Causeway.

The revised route is separated into ‘Quality’ and ‘Link’ sections designed to help you maximise the potential of the best walking areas in Northern Ireland whilst minimising the time spent on busy roads helping to provide a truly memorable experience for any long distance walker.
