Welcome to Hilltrekker! You have found the leading camping and outdoor equipment shop in the Mountains of Mourne. Hilltrekker is situated in the town of Newcastle, which nestles at the bottom of Slieve Donard, the Mourne's highest summit.

You will find us at the south end of Newcastle's main street, which runs along the side of the newly constructed promenade, with the sea just beyond. There are magnificant views across the bay towards St.John's point. The Donard car park is just behind and the mountains rise beyond. If you need more information on how to get here from anywhere in the British Isles you can access a direction finder here.
