Slievemore Mountain will appeal to hiking enthusiasts as well as lovers of history and archaeological remains.

For beyond its marked trails, the southern side of the mountain is home to a magnificent abandoned village bearing the same name as the mountain: Slievemore.

This village dates back to the 12th century, but would have been occupied until the 20th century before being definitively abandoned. Exceptional, it has a dark charm and will delight lovers of history and traditional Irish architecture.

If you prefer commando trekking, don’t hesitate to leave well-equipped. The view from the summit is fantastic, and should reward your efforts!
