7. The Mourne Way
One of the wilder, but more accessible, sections of the Ulster Way, this 26-mile yomp leads walkers from Newcastle to Rostrevor, in County Down via glorious swathes of moorland, mountain and ancient woodlands. The walk takes two days but, unless you live locally, you'll need to add in a night in Newcastle.
Where: Self-guided three-night Mourne Way breaks cost from £229 per person with Let's Go Walking! This includes B&B accommodation, luggage transfer and route maps (letsgowalking.com)
