Discover Turf Country

In our previous blog we gave you some recommendations for places to visit in County Donegal. In this blog we provide a snapshot of 5 places near our base here in Belleek that are amazing places to visit.

Probably one of the finest viewpoints in NW Ireland is from Cliffs of Magho. Located above Lower Lough Erne you can see Donegal Bay, the Bluestack Mountains, Sliab Liag and even Breesy Mountain. Feeling energetic? Hike up the 1km path from the Lough shore for a good workout.
Little Dog is lovely hike near Derrygonnelly. It provides great views over Lough Melvin, towards Cuilcagh Mooutain (the highest point in Co. Fermanagh), the Leitrim and Sligo Mountains plus Donegal Bay.
Only 5 miles from Belleek is Castle Caldwell. With a ruined castle set in a broad leafed forest on a promontory on Lower Lough Erne this is a great place for a woodland walk following one of the waymarked trails.
The village of Garrison sits on the eastern shore of Lough Melvin. The views across the Lough are breathtaking anytime of year.
Also close to Garrison are the Roogagh Falls. The River Roogagh cascades down the falls en route to Lough Melvin. Especially spectacular after heavy rainfall in the nearby hills which swell the waters, making for a terrific display of hydro power!
