Duration: 8 hours
The Sperrin Mountains is one of the largest and most unspoilt mountain ranges in Ireland, and this 8-hour guided tour from Belfast gives you an opportunity admire this beautiful natural landscape. Stretching from the shores of Lough Neagh in the south to the Atlantic Ocean in the North, this unique and distinctive landscape is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Sperrins Mountains is steeped in history and culture and is a haven for things to see and do! From Neolithic monuments and restored mills to National Trust properties and forest parks. Not forgetting the heather-clad Sperrin Mountains that provide a sense of space, peace and solitude. Beautiful landscapes and historic towns provide the backdrop to the friendliest welcome, the most convivial company and the best ‘craic’ you will encounter anywhere during your trip.
You will be picked up from your hotel or point of arrival in Belfast. Your tour will begin in the busy market town of Magherafelt, where you can grab a cup of coffee at one of its many unique cafes. Magherafelt itself dates from the Plantation of Ulster in the 1600s and although it has lost all of the features of the original town, it still dominates the landscape for miles around with its hilltop location and the distinctive array of its three church spires.
The Sperrins cover a vast area, so you will use this full-day tour to visit many of its most compelling attractions: Jump to the sound of the ghost at Springhill House; Marvel at megalithic wonder of the Beaghmore Stone Circles; Look out over a vast mountain wilderness; Immerse yourself in the linen tradition at Wellbrook Beetling Mill; Enjoy the splendour of historic Lissan House.
