This  authentic experience  will provide you with the opportunity to try your hand at cutting turf with turf spade.  Learn about the processes involved in the turf bog from preparing the turf bank, cutting, speading, footing, clamping and bagging the turf.  After all that,  enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with traditional homemade soda bread on the turf bog. Then learn how to set the perfect turf fire and marvel at the views of no less than five Counties, Breesy Mountain, Keenaghan Lough and Lower Lough Erne.
