Bloody Bridge

Bloody Bridge

Bloody Bridge has a 1 mile linear walking trail along rocky coastline with great Irish Sea views.

The Bloody Bridge campsite provide a great base from which to explore the Mourne Mountains.  

Bloody Bridge offers an excellent location for both bouldering and coastering. The river gushes over granite boulders on its way from Slieve Donard to the sea, creating excellent waterfalls and deep pools. Both activities should only be carried out under the watchful eye of a qualified instructor.
