Welcome to the Official Website of the new Ulster Way - a 625 mile (1000 km) circular long distance walking route that is one of the longest in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The Quality Sections as the name suggest provide a truly quality walking experience. They are mainly on the already established Waymarked Ways which are predominantly off road, pass through Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and waymarked throughout their length.
The Link Sections are not waymarked and mainly on public roads some of which can be very busy. Walkers are actively encouraged to make use of public transport along these sections so they can make best use of their time on the more attractive Quality Sections.
There is no better opportunity to take in Northern Ireland’s spectacularly varied scenery, wonder at its wildlife and sample the local heritage.
Follow in the footsteps of St Patrick along the Lecale Way, discover the Mourne landscapes that inspired the Tales of Narnia, take in the tranquility of the Fermanagh Lakelands, enjoy the rugged Sperrin Mountains and not forgetting the awe amazing Giant’s Causeway.
The Ulster Way truly provides the destination for that ultimate walking holiday.
The revised Ulster Way was officially launched on 16th September 2009. This website is designed to help you plan ahead so you can enjoy the route whilst out on the ground. Please Note: All signposts and waymarkers are monitored on an annual basis by Outdoor Recreation NI Volunteer Rangers and are maintained by the local authorities. It cannot be guaranteed that all waymarkers are in place at all times, so please avail of the detailed route descriptions and downloadable OSNI maps for each section, available here on WalkNI Ulster Way.
