A popular place to stay for walking groups, the Burrendale Hotel Country Club & Spa is offering 30% off for all walkers.  Located in Newcastle at the foot of Slieve Donard, the highest peak in Northern Ireland (853m), this is a great location for those wanting to explore the Mournes and enjoy the hospitality of this popular town.  Cnocnafeola (The Mourne Lodge) in Atticall, is an ideal location for walkers exploring the Southern Mournes. This popular hostel is a community run project at the very heart of the Mountains of Mourne situated just 3.5 miles from the spectacular Silent Valley Reservoir in the foothills of the impressive Slieve Binnian - the third highest peak in the Mournes and Northern Ireland (747m / 2,450ft). 

Whether you want to walk the breathtaking coastline on the famous Causeway Coast Way or explore the Glens of Antrim Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty there are plenty of walking highlights along the North Coast.  Less than a mile from the Causeway Coast Way in Bushmills lie the 5 star Ballylinny Cottages with views over the Giants Causeway, the seaside village of Portballintrae and the Donegal Coastline beyond.  Stay 2 nights midweek in their self catering cottages for just £25 per person (based on 4 people sharing). 

Ballycastle is a great base for those wanting to explore Rathlin – the most northerly inhabited island in Ireland.  Situated 10km off the North East Coast the ferry makes daily crossings to and from the town.  The island has a number of walking trails as well as a world renowned RSPB centre making it a birdwatchers paradise.   Stay at the Castle Hostel less than ten minutes walking distance from the ferry terminal and enjoy 3 nights accommodation for the price of 2. 

For those looking to explore the relatively untouched Sperrins there are a small number of rural towns and villages spread throughout this wild landscape.  Stretching along the border of counties Tyrone and Derry, you can expect undulating hills with Craignamaddy Circuit, Robbers Table and Vinegar Hill Loop particular highlights.  Walkers can stay for 4 nights for the price of 3 at Bradkeel Cottage self catering accommodation which offers excellent views of the surrounding mountains and farmland, a wood burning stove and washing facilities perfect for sorting out any mucky walking gear!
