We spent a weekend at the new Rostrevor mountain bike trail centre. It was well worth the drive and we’re definitely going back.
Brilliant natural trails, great views, excellent facilities – café, showers, and uplift service at the car park.
The black trail is a rocky, flowy, technical descent that just makes you want to go up and do it again. There are two downhill runs, served by the uplift service, and a long red trail.
If you need good-value accommodation, with a restaurant (they’ll even give you a packed lunch), try The Mourne Lodge. It’s just up the road from Rostrevor and they will look after you.
