The Mourne Mountains, County Down
The Irish countryside doesn’t get any better than this. The Mourne Mountains are an area of outstanding natural beauty - so much so that they inspired CS Lewis to write The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. More recently, they have provided stunning theatrical backdrops for the TV adaptation of Game of Thrones. In full 70 km in length, there are plenty of routes to choose from, one of the most popular being the Rostrevor Route (27 km). The Mournes can be demanding - they are, after all, unsurprisingly mountainous and steep in parts - but the stunning views are reward enough.
