Enniskeen Country House Hotel


Mourne Foods Cycle Trail - as seen on TV!


The 'Mourne Foods Cycle Trail' has been devised by the Enniskeen Country House hotel (just outside Newcastle co down), in association with local food producers to showcase the wonderful artisan food in this area of Northern Ireland. With the Mourne Mountains as its backdrop, the 'Mourne Foods Cycle Trail' pairs up gentle cycling, stunning scenery and simply delicious food!


Stop off with local producers, hear their stories, get the chance to buy directly from the farmer, and then store your provisions in the specially provided bike panniers all adds to this unique memorable experience.

This trail offers visitors a self-guided tour by bicycle, with gentle cycling either downhill or on flat ground - electric bikes are available too, so there are definitely no excuses!

A shuttle bus takes you up to the start point at Spelga Dam in the heart of the Mourne Mountains and from there it is all downhill through the beautiful Shimna valley and Tollymore Forest Park. The surrounding scenery is stunning with views of the Mourne Mountains, and as you cycle through Tollymore Forest Park you pass by the 'Kings Grave' and 'Altavaddy Bridge' the filming location of the 'Direwolf Pups' in the Game of Thrones TV series - don't forget your camera!

Priced from £30 per person - includes bicycle hire, bike pannier storage compartment, trail pack and FREE shuttle bus up to Spelga Dam.

Advance booking is required - please call hotel reception on 028 4372 2392 to reserve your space.
