An absolutely beautiful valley. Enjoy the tranquillity of silent Valley Mountain Park in the heart of the Mourne Mountains. Find out about the industrial heritage which gave rise to the magnificent dams and shaped the surrounding landscape.

Northern Ireland Water has provided a number of visitor facilities at the valley including a cafe, information centre, conference centre and education centre - all housed in two old colonial style bungalows and enjoying delightful views over the parkland.
