The Ring of Gullion Way is a 38-mile section exploring the ancient volcanic landscape of the Ring of Gullion Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Starting in the centre of Newry and finishing at Derrymore House on the Bessbrook Road, the route uses quiet country lanes and forest tracks as it journeys across the rugged landscape surrounding County Armagh's highest mountain, Slieve Gullion. Along the way you can visit a succession of quiet villages and historic monuments that together provide a vivid impression of the area's rich heritage.
