Walks in Northern Ireland

Killeavy Castle Estate is the perfect base to explore the great outdoors on foot. Our 350 acre Estate is ideally situated in the Ring of Gullion, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making it the perfect base for your next walking adventure.

Killeavy Castle Estate Guest Walks

Surround yourself with nature as you explore the guest walks located throughout the grounds of our Estate. Our guest walks have been created to allow you to enjoy the scenic aspects throughout the Estate. Many of our walks were created at the time of inception of Killeavy Castle in 1836, while some woodland walks have been created more recently to allow our guests to enjoy the scenic views over Slieve Gullion and the nearby countryside. 

Escape life in the fast lane and embrace the silence that nature provides and allow yourself to ‘Get closer to what’s important’.

We have mapped all our guest walks to allow you to make the most of your time. Pick up a map from the Hotel reception and don’t forget to take some pictures and share them with us on our social media channels. 

Specialised tours can be provided for groups of four or more. These can be customised by our Blue Badge Walking Guide to learn more about the rich history of Killeavy Castle Estate or the cultural and religious connections of Killeavy and Slieve Gullion.
