The Cuilcagh Way is a pretty cool walking route that takes you along the banks of the River Claddagh in County Fermanagh. With a total length of 32km, the route starts from Cladagh Glen and passes through Deer Park, Florence Court Forest Park, Legacurragh, Cuilcagh Mountain and Legnabrocky. A trail that will give you some great views of the Northern Irish countryside!
It is to the south-west of Enniskillen, and on the border of County Fermanagh and Cavan that you can start your walk. The Cuilcagh Way is a wild and bucolic route, where the fauna and flora of the river will surprise you!
Very well marked, and of a reasonable difficulty (the hike is rather family friendly, with stairs for the important differences in height), the path crosses the Florence Court Forest, an idyllic park where the birds sing and have a great time. In this area, you will also find the impressive Marble Arch Caves, an 11.5 km long cave which is one of the most imposing in Northern Ireland! Opened to the visit, the place is ideal to discover the territory differently, through its underground galleries and its huge stalactites…
If you continue walking, don’t miss the valley of Cladagh Glen and the mountains of Cuilcagh Mountain. The views are magnificent and will make you enjoy an authentic Northern Irish nature, with its invigorating air smelling of moor and river.
Note that the most attentive may be able to observe some otters on the banks of the river! In short: a walk for the whole family, but which will require you to leave well equipped! Walking shoes, backpack, water bottles, windbreaker and warm clothes are strongly recommended to spend an unforgettable moment.
