Freshwalks: Belfast and the Mourne Mountains

21 August, 2019

Freshwalks is going overseas for the first time as we head to Belfast on Thursday 26 September for a couple of nights.

The plan is to blend a city break, including walking tours and socials, with some of the finest trekking in the United Kingdom and a route high up in the Mourne Mountains, an hour from Belfast. Our proposed Friday route starts at Trassey car park and finishes at the coastal town of Newcastle – via Slieve Bearnagh, Slieve Commedagh & Slieve Donard (the highest mountain in Northern Ireland).

The limited number of tour packages including flights and accommodation are now sold out and what a fantastic bunch it is heading over. However, Belfast and Manchester based businesspeople are still welcome to join us for all or part of our experience (and of course you can still directly book onto our flights and stay with us too). And though some of you are already pulling on your walking boots, I’d particularly encourage the Belfast business community to join us for drinks on the Thursday night at Babel VIP on the rooftop of the Bullitt Hotel.

The following options are available:-

Freshwalks Experience (including Thursday’s city tours, Friday’s hike, return coach from Belfast and access to social events excluding food and drink) – £110
Mourne Mountains £25 (walk only) £45 (walk & transport from Belfast city centre)

Belfast x Manchester (Thursday night social event, please see separate event page) – £10 (early bird)
