Mourne Coastal Route
The Mourne Coastal Route hosts some of Ireland’s most spectacular scenery and what better way to experience it than from the socially acceptable, environmentally sustainable and endlessly exhilarating viewpoint provided by an electric bike!
This route is perfect for the adventurer with so many fantastic variations on routes to ride and places to explore, from the multitude of little coastal villages, castles, beaches, forests and everything that comes with an area of such natural, social and built heritage.
We strongly recommend a two day experience to allow yourself enough time to explore as this tour provides many tempting options, with Newcastle forming the perfect midway overnight destination – we can provide drop-offs/pick-ups and luggage shuttles as part of the package.
