The Silent Valley is a little gem in the heart of the Mournes. There are different walking routes to cater for all levels, exhibitions and a cafe. A lovely destination.

Beautiful views and great walks. Definitely a must if your in the area. Carparking costs £4.50 which is very reasonable. Lots of picnic tables. Toilets are very clean.

We spent a weekend in the Mourne mountains and a walk in the Silent Valley was one of the best parts of this trip. Breath taking scenery, relaxing. This place just makes you feel nature in its essence.
