Day hikes accessible from belfast europa bus station

I am staying near Europa for a few days in July and would like to do some hiking in Ulster's lovely mountains. I can see that the Coastliner Newcastle and no doubt other services would get me to the vicinity but, despite a lot of searching, haven't been able to find any info on actual hikes that can be accessed by bus (either circular, or starting at one point and picking up another bus at the end. Can anyone give recommendations - 8 to 12 miles preferred?

Have a look at this website - click on for example the medium walks and if any interest you, you will see some public transport options included. Some options will be harder without a car but there are possibilities there...

Or, if you want to explore the Mournes, go to County Down and scroll down all the options there.

Can't comment on any particular ones as we tend to just climb Donard along the Trassey Track or up from Donard Park etc.

During the summer, the Mournes Rambler operates which should help you.

I suggest you take a bus to Newcastle and then use the Mourne Rambler service 405 which does a loop through the mountains several times a day:


Trassey Track to Bloody Bridge, Silent Valley or Lough Shannagh path would all be nice one-way walks. Don't venture into the mountains without a OSNI Mourne 1:25000 map.
