There's more to explore nearby

The Mournes from Murlough dunes

The Mournes from Murlough dunes

Make the most of your stay at Castle Ward and visit Murlough National Nature Reserve situated less than 20 miles away. This beautiful dune landscape is fringed by one of Northern Ireland's most popular sandy beaches. With unrivalled views of the Mountains of Mourne and a network of paths and boardwalks to explore it is an excellent area for walking. This fragile 6,000 year old sand dune system also makes it a haven for an array of butterflies and wildflowers.
