Do you have a Mourne Mountains enthusiast in your family? Maybe your mum loves nothing more than a weekend jaunt up Slieve Donard, or you have a sibling with a penchant for walking the Brandy Pad.

Either way, here are eight very cool Mourne Mountains present ideas, all found on Etsy (so you know they’re handmade by nice creative people!):
1. Mourne Mountains Enamel Mug
Enamel Mug with illustration of the Mourne Mountains printed on the mug.
Perfect for taking on an adventure in the great outdoors, or for having a cup of tea at home!

6. ‘The Mournes are calling and I must go.’ Adventure screen printed wood sign
A Once upon a Dandelion original quote and design, inspired by our own love of the Mourne mountains in Newcastle, County Down and John Muir.
Our wood art and signs are all hand made from start to finish in our studio nestled in the picturesque Mournes here in Northern Ireland.
Using our original Once upon a Dandelion design, we use traditional screen printing methods on handmade wood plaques, all made by Philip using wood sourced locally from responsibly managed forests.
Please note that due to the colour, nature and character of wood and each picture being made to order, every finished piece will vary slightly from the picture shown, making each purchase unique.
The total measurement of each piece may again vary slightly but will measure approximately 21cm by 30cm and are both freestanding and ready to hang (shown in the photos above) simply using a nail or screw.
7. Slieve Donard Print in Frame
Slieve Donard, The Mournes, County Down, was drawn in the winter of 2004. Slieve Donard, the highest mountain in Northern Ireland towers over Newcastle, a quaint seaside town on the County Down coast. Famed for its rolling cushioned granite stonewalls, the incredibly peaceful Spelga Dam, the Mourne mountains and apparently also home to many hidden pots of gold! And as seen in the drawing, and as the world famous song suggests, the Mountains of Mourne really do sweep down to the sea.
