The Ulster Way is a looped walk around Ulster, however for the Ireland Way you just walk the western and northern sections. Joining the Ulster Way at Belcoo in County Fermanagh you will be walking north towards the coast. You will follow the blue Ulster Way sign and yellow arrows for the rest of your journey through counties Fermanagh, Tyrone, Derry and Antrim. Don't forget you will need pound sterling currency here! Accommodation is quite sparse along the western part but plentiful along the coastline from Castlerock to Ballycastle.
History of the Ulster Way
The Ulster way was originally created by Wilfrid Capper MBE in 1946. It once linked about 15 hostels however most have since closed down. The trail has been redeveloped and way-marked and is now gaining popularity amongst the world's top long-distance hiking trails. Find more information on WalkNI.com
