Description

Located within the beautiful Castlewellan Forest Park, the popular Peace Maze is the second largest permanent hedge maze in the world and is one of Northern Ireland’s fastest growing tourist attractions. Comprised of 6,000 yew trees, many of which were planted by people from all over Northern Ireland during December of 2000, the maze was commissioned to beautifully symbolise the peace and reconciliation efforts of Northern Ireland in the past century.

Free to enter, visitors can enjoy a weaving walk through the paths and trails surrounded by the impressive backdrop of the Mourne Mountains. Can you be the first to make your way out and ring the Peace Bell?
