Visit Silent Valley Reservoir
The Silent Valley Reservoir located a short drive away from the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa Hotel was built to gather water from the Mourne Mountains and is the main water supply source for most of Co. Down and a large part of Belfast.
Surrounded by the picturesque Mountains of Mourne, the valley is located within an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Visitors can enjoy a leisurely walk in landscaped parkland with spectacular mountain backdrop. There is a restaurant and information close to the dam wall.
The walk is steep in places. Walkers can walk another 3 miles up to Ben Crom reservoir and return (another 3 miles) on the same route back to Silent Valley reservoir. A regular bus service operates in the summer season to Ben Crom.
Toilets and refreshments available during summer months and public holidays at Silent Valley restaurant and information centre or in nearby Kilkeel.
