“Dont forget your boots on weekends in the Mournes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Very helpful staff. They directed us to an excellent outdoor activities shop (Hill Trekker, Central promenade) where I was able to purchase a very reasonably priced pair of hiking boots. No blisters climbing Slieve Binnion the next day!!
