Challenge yourself to make it to the highest peak in Northern Ireland – in the dark!
In staggered groups from 6:00pm on Friday 2nd October, we plan to make it to the summit around 11pm, where you will be able to stargaze and marvel at the lights of Newcastle and beyond, before returning to Donard Car Park for a well-earned hot cuppa.
We’ll follow the well-known Brandy Pad Route–the main track up & down alongside the Glen River. The duration of the climb depends on the group’s pace, but on average takes 5 hours.
Get your torch ready for this must-do challenge!
Minimum age is 16. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Date & Time: 2 October 2020, 6.00pm - 1.00am
Location: Slieve Donard Mountain, Newcastle
