Travelling to and around the Ulster Way

The Ulster Way is one of the most enjoyable ways to experience Northern Ireland on foot. For those sections of trail however which involve travelling along busy roads, we recommend using a car, public transport or, where available, a shuttle service to travel between sections.

Public Transport

Plan your route using the Translink Website:

Translink also offer the following Rambler Services:


Taxi companies can be found throughout the entire Ulster Way route. You can find many of them online here, although not all are listed online. For taxi numbers not listed here, please contact the local Visitor Information Centre.

 Mourne Shuttle Bus Service

This 16 seat mini bus can pick you up at your desired car park and take you out to the start point of your route so you can walk back to the car meaning you will no longer be restricted to the circular routes and can explore many of the fantastic linear ones in the area. The shuttle service runs throughout the whole year, every weekend and can be requested during the week. In the summer months of July and August the service will be available seven days a week.

Pick up and drop off points include Donard Park, Newcastle, Trassey Track Car Park and Carrick Little Car Park. A bespoke shuttle and support service to walking groups is also available. For more information or to book the shuttle service, please contact Peter Magowan on 07516 412076.


The majority of accommodation is not located directly on the Ulster Way route and therefore it may be necessary to use public transport, taxis, or where available, shuttle services to travel to and from your accommodation.
