We were looking for a break with a difference and found it with Enniskeen's cycling mini-break ,mountain bikes and safety equipment supplied on site along with route map. Tullymore forest park is a couple of minutes away and a slight uphill cycle up the route of the Shimna river is worth it for a rewarding freewheel back down,we then carried on down the Bryansford road and into Newcastle for a walk around the shops and a cup of coffee at Davinci's (recommended) again an uphill cycle back to Enniskeen was worth the reward of a nice cold beer on the scenic terrace overlooking the hotel grounds and mournes backdrop.Staff at the hotel are attentive and friendly,food at the Enniskeen was delicious and our room (no.6) has an art nouveau bathroom suite (original) that has to be seen !! Thanks to the staff for a wonderful time and hope to be back in the near future.
