Description

Lough Navar Forest is undoubtedly one of the jewels of the Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark. Located approximately 5km outside the village of Derrygonnelly, this spectacular forest extends across 2,600 hectares of bog; heath; open water; native woodland; and coniferous forest. The forest is rich in natural and historical antiquities and is owned by the Forest Service of Northern Ireland. The forest boasts a network of walking trails of varying length and a 10km scenic drive leading to one of the best views in Ireland. It is hardly surprising that this forest is a mecca for walkers, fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts.

There are a number of spectacular viewpoints within the forest, particularly worthy of note is the Magho Cliffs Viewpoint. The cliffs themselves are a 9km limestone escarpment dominating the southern shore and skyline of Lower Lough Erne on the northern edge of Lough Navar Forest.  The spectacular view is arguably one of the most dramatic on the island of Ireland. At a height of 300 metres, the viewpoint offers a bird’s eye view across the lake far into counties Fermanagh, Sligo, Tyrone and Donegal and even as far as the Wild Atlantic Way. The viewpoint is popular with visitors attracting many artists, photographers, bird watchers and walkers. A footpath climbing from the bottom of the 300 metre high cliffs provides a challenging experience that every visitor should try!
