In 2021 we were given the chance to buy 156ha of Mourne Park. We've now completed the first phase of our work including three new walking trails for you to explore.

When you visit, please stick to our designated paths as the surrounding land is privately owned by Mourne Park House and is strictly private.

How to get to Mourne Park

The 156-hectare site (385 acres) Mourne Park site lies just outside Kilkeel in County Down, halfway between Dublin and Belfast in the tourist hotspot of the Mourne Mountains Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Although we're working hard to improve access to Mourne Park, there aren't any benches and the site may not be suitable for people with limited mobility or wheelchair users.

Litter bins are available in the car park but not in the woodland.

Parking is available in the gravel car park at the Mourne Country Park Toptracer Driving Range, 228 Newry Rd, Newry BT34 4LB.

Directions from Kilkeel

Follow the Newry Road (A2) for 2 miles. After a large estate wall on the right, turn right into the old gatehouse entrance, following the sign to Kilkeel Golf Club car park. Continue through the golf club car park to the gravel car park at the driving range.

Directions from Rostrevor

From the centre of Rostrevor follow the Shore Road (A2) for almost 7.5 miles. After about 7 miles, pass a large parking layby on the right and an estate wall on the left. Turn left at the old gatehouse and sign for Kilkeel Golf Club. Follow the lane up to the golf club car park. Continue through the golf club car park to the gravel car park at the driving range.
