The Mourne International Walking Festival returns in 2018 for its 20th year.

The Mourne International Walking Festival celebrates two decades of discovery when this award-winning three-day event returns on Friday 22nd June.

This year’s event kicks off on Friday 22nd June and runs until Sunday 24th and will feature a range of routes carefully planned to impress at both low and higher levels.

The Mourne Mountains has already been recognised as the ‘Best Walking Destination’ in Northern Ireland by WalkNI, which credits the area for its unrivalled network of paths and tracks while the Mourne International Walking Festival has also won the WalkNI ‘Favourite Walking Event’ award for two consecutive years.

The walking festival features a variety of self-guided lowland walks including more strenuous mountain climbs ranging in distance from 10km to 40, so everyone is encouraged to gauge what would be most suitable for them.

For those taking part, there is also the chance to celebrate their achievements by attending the special ‘Life and Sole Swing’ festival evening event on Saturday 24th at McCann’s in Newcastle. A tasty hot buffet meal will be provided and a ceilidh band will be on hand for those still keen to stay on their feet.
