General information

Slans Graveyard

A short community trail facilitating access to Slans Graveyard with incredible panoramic views overlooking Cloughey.


A scheduled monument dating back to the first millennium AD, at one time Slans was the main graveyard for the Cloughey and Kirkistown area and the burial place for many sailors who lost their lives in the waters around the notorious North and South Rocks off Cloughey. 

The trail begins from the Ardminnan Road approximately one mile from the village of Cloughey.  Begin at the signposted entrance crossing the stone stile into the field.  Follow the fenced off trail through the field to reach another stone stile and the entrance into the graveyard.  Here you will find an interpretation panel with information on the historic site and its fascinating history.  Make your own way through the graveyard taking in the panoramic countryside views and historic graveyard.  Return via the same route to Ardminnan Road.
