Northern Ireland Sights

Silent Valley

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Fodor's Review

The road to Silent Valley Reservoir Park leads to mountain views and excellent photo ops. Also here is a visitor center with an informative exhibition explaining the history of Silent Valley. Look into the "Locals Room," which celebrates the men who worked on the building of the reservoir as well as the Mourne Wall. You can also pick up information on walking trails.
