Geopark Description

The Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark, is tucked away in the northwest corner of Ireland and straddles the border between counties Fermanagh and Cavan. This international Geopark takes in parts of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland allowing visitors to appreciate the best of what this unspoiled region has to offer.

Gently rolling drumlins and winding rivers set against a dramatic backdrop of spectacular cliffs, rugged rocky outcrops and upland blanket bog and underground cave systems set the stage for your visit. Sites like Marble Arch Caves, Cuilcagh Mountain Park and Cavan Burren Park are a must have experience by the 400,000 visitors we receive annually. Other scenic highlights include the major lake systems of the Erne, MacNean and Oughter, all combining to create a truly sensational blend of beautiful landscapes. It is not just the internationally important natural landscapes that make this area so special. Prehistoric tombs, Iron Age forts, early Christian monasteries, Plantation Castles and Glacial Erractics are scattered across the landscape, all of it reminding us of the intimate relationship that people have had with the landscape since their arrival in Ireland thousands of year ago. At the heart of the Geopark are the local people who live in it and who depend on tourism as one of the main drivers of the region’s economy.

Like all, UNESCO Global Geoparks, the Geopark focuses on conservation, education and geo-tourism, helping local communities to celebrate the links between the unique geology of their area and its natural, historical and cultural heritages. Their purpose is not just to conserve the environment but also to encourage its enjoyment and understanding by local communities and visitors alike through sustainable tourism.
