Posted on December 23, 2014 @ 12:32 PM in Mountainbiking

If you’re riding Northern Ireland’s Mountain Bike Trails this holiday period, you’ll most likely be in need of a post-ride Winter Warmer to help with the ‘thawing out’ process! We thought we’d lend a hand by putting together some of our favourite MTB-Friendly pubs that’ll be sure to hit the spot!

MAGINNS | CASTLEWELLAN MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS

This family run pub is located approx. 200 metres from the entrance of Castlewellan Forest Park and has an enclosed yard for bike storage and a gear room for your helmets, gloves and jackets etc. A favourite with local mountain bikers, you’ll always get a fantastic welcome at Maginns!

KILBRONEY BAR & RESTAURANT | ROSTREVOR MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS
The Kilbroney
Located in the heart of Rostrevor village, the Kilbroney Bar & Restaurant welcomes mountain bikers with open arms serving up a range of lagers, stouts and ciders. The restaurant will also make up some take away lunches for long days out on the trails - this is a great spot!
