Slieve Donard Climbing Notes

mervyn from UNITED KINGDOM writes:

Park at the Donard car park in Newcastle (southern end of town). No walk in trail, straight hike to the top in about 1hr 30/40 minutes. Enjoy the view over the Irish Sea and to the heart of the Mournes. The top (on a clear day)affords you the only opportunity in the British Isles to see :- England, Scotland, Wales and Republic of Ireland.
