About

There are many walks throughout the Crom Estate; the main loop is approximately 3 miles. The grounds are partly accessed by wheelchair. The grass and woodland pathways are free of slopes with reasonably smooth and level surfaces, but can be muddy.

This breathtakingly beautiful landscape contains many habitats: parkland, lough shore, species rich grassland, wet woodland and mature oak woodland. Over 400 species of plants and many mosses and lichens have been identified here. All eight species of Northern Ireland's bats have been recorded while pine martens and red squirrels have made it their home.

Crom has twelve species of dragonflies and damselflies making it one of the top sites in Northern Ireland for this group of impressive invertebrates. Along the water's edge look out for plants such as cowbane, greater water-parsnip, yellow water lillies, and arrowhead. There are orchid rich wet meadows. In the tall wet fen, birds like the water rail breed.

At the Old Castle, as well as the historically significant yew trees, look out for the ivy broomrape and parsley on the walls, sweet violets under the trees, and the white bells of summer snowflake down by the water's edge. The mature stands of oak trees are rich in woodland birds such as treecreepers, woodcok and long-eared owls, while the garden warbler are best looked for in woodland glades where there is a moderate understorey for nesting. The Silver-washed fritillary butterfly is most likely to be seen in these glades while the rare purple hair streak butterfly has also been recorded on the mature oak.
