Pollnagollum Cave Walk

Book Tickets Online


Belmore Forest covers much of Belmore Mountain with a summit of roughly 398m and is the second highest point in Fermanagh, providing breathtaking views of Boho, Lower Lough Erne, Lough Navar and to the east, Brougher Mountain with its distinctive television masts on top.

This wonderful expanse is at the heart of Fermanagh’s Boho cave country and beneath your feet lies an extensive maze of caves which attract cavers and potholers from far and wide. The forest is brimming with things to do: breath-taking views, local wildlife, deep forest, and cave systems; amongst them Pollnagollum Cave, which was used in filming for the popular television series, Game of Thrones. A viewing platform at Pollnagollum Cave provides a stunning vantage point to see the impressive cave entrance which is fed by a beautifully cascading waterfall toppling down a 12m limestone cliff to disappear into the depths of darkness. The stream flows underground for approximately 1.8km before resurfacing along the North bank of the Aghanaglack River.


The first part of the walk passes Coolarkan Quarry on your left. Shortly after the quarry, a path branches off the track on your left and directs you down stone slab steps, to an observation platform that provides a safe access point for viewing the cave entrance and 12m waterfall. The walk resumes along the forest track, meandering uphill it offers spectacular views over the surrounding area including Cuilcagh Mountain, Lower Lough MacNean to the South and Brougher Mountain to the East.
