My holiday in: Mountains of Mourne

Slevin Family

Where we went

We went to Carlingford, Co Louth, with our Mum and Dad. We stayed in Sally's self-catering house beside Dundalk Bay.

What we did

We spent four lovely days in the Mourne and Cooley Mountains. On the first day, we drove to Newcastle, Co Down, where we walked on the promenade and went on bumper cars. On the second day, we went hiking in the Cooley Mountains overlooking Carlingford. We hiked in the Mourne Mountains on the third day. We saw beautiful scenery. Then we watched Manchester United beat Sunderland.

On the last day, we took it easy and went to see Furry Vengeance at the cinema.

What we liked

We had brilliant picnics up the mountains and we loved the playground in Carlingford.

What we didn't like

We didn't like being in the car. We wanted to be out exploring and having fun.

What we ate

Pasta, chips, Mammy's homemade pizza, chicken and ice cream. It was all very tasty because we were so hungry after our activities.
