Ha-Ha it’s back to Downhill!

Ha-ha hidden animal barrier around the ruined Downhill Castle – runners beware!

NI Colour Series One 2019 sees a return to the magnificent seascapes of Downhill Demesne and Mussenden Temple. Thanks to the National Trust for allowing access and the use of their car parking, toilets and other facilities.

This should be a spectacular start to the 2019 Colour Series.
