Mourne Habitats and Wildlife
Within the Mourne Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
The Mournes includes a remarkable range of wildlife habitats, from marine and coastal environments stretching between Carlingford Lough and Dundrum bay to the uplands of the Mourne Mountains and Slieve Croob.
On our coasts you can expect to see Kittiwakes, Sand Martins and Fritillary butterflies.
The mountains provide habitat for rare plants, for example, the juniper species and safe sites for ravens and peregrine falcons
Fun-filled holiday for all the family!
Our cottages are beneath the majestic Mourne Mountains allowing you to walk from the door and be top of the world a few hours later.
