Slieve Donard Moonlit Walk- 2nd October 2020 (previously 22nd May 2020)


Due to the sudden and dramatic impact of Covid-19, the decision has been made to postpone this event to Friday 2nd October 2020. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 


  • Challenge yourself to make it to the highest peak in Northern Ireland – in the dark!

    Starting at 7.30pm 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.
