Where you can visit

From 28 June you won’t need to book to visit many of our places in Northern Ireland. The exception is the Giant’s Causeway where the Visitor Experience must be booked in advance. At Mount Stewart and Rowallane Garden pre-booking is recommended, especially during weekends and holidays. However, where space is available on weekdays, pre-booking isn't always necessary. Please check the individual property pages for details before visiting.

National Trust in the Mournes

The Mourne Mountains are the highest and most dramatic mountain range in Northern Ireland. Beloved by hikers, the Mournes have long inspired writers and storytellers. A landmark of international importance, its 12 peaks have been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Find out more about our work as caretakers of Slieve Donard and Slieve Commedagh including our recovery activity following the recent fire and donation appeal to support this effort.
