NEWRY CITY AND MOURNE AREA AS A DESTINATION FOR HEN PARTIES:
Located in the south eastern corner of Northern Ireland, the Newry and Mourne area extends from the southern slopes of the Mourne Mountains to the legendary Ring of Gullion and offers great diversity of scenery, culture and leisure activities.
Newry and Mourne includes some of the most dramatic and picturesque scenery in Ireland and the Ring of Gullion in south Armagh is the most spectacular example of ring-dyke intrusion in The UK and Ireland.
Right in the centre of these two areas of outstanding beauty is the distinguished and historical city of Newry.
With such splendid landscapes surrounding the city limits, it’s easy to know why there’s such a vast scope for exhilarating outdoor activities. But for Hen Parties with a more leisurely visit in mind, within the city you can find plenty of retail therapy, fabulous bars and restaurants, hotels all mixed with the wonderful charm of the Newry people
For the active groups that are interested in burning off the calories the options are wide ranging. Angling at the river Whitewater, Golfing at Cloverhill, Horse riding at the Oakwood Riding centre or Jet Skiing and mountain biking out at Warrenpoint.
There are other adrenalin pumping pursuits such as Hill climbing, cycling, walking and leisure centres providing indoor facilities for the sports minded girls.
