About

Cuilcagh Lakelands Geopark, one of four transnational Geoparks in the world as it straddles County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland and County Cavan in the Republic of Ireland, became the world’s first cross border Geopark in 2008.

The Geopark is home to a fascinating variety of geology, natural landscapes, and historic relics. Major lakes, gently rolling drumlins and winding rivers are set against the dramatic backdrop of spectacular cliffs, rugged outcrops, hidden caves and a fabulous array of natural habitats and species. It also contains prehistoric tombs, Iron Age forts, early Christian monasteries, and Plantation Castles – all of which have good public access all year round.

The Geopark boasts over 50 stunning sites including breath-taking viewpoints, magical waterfalls, wonderful wetlands and fantastic forests; with key sites including the mystical Cavan Burren Park, Lough Navar Forest, the world famous Marble Arch Caves, and the Instagram famous Cuilcagh Boardwalk.

The incredible landscapes host a magical array of biodiversity from the red deer and red squirrels of its forests, to the waders and wildfowl of the loughs or the bees and butterflies of the limestone grasslands.

Rich in an abundance of heritage and nature, it also boasts the very best of facilities and it is obvious why Cuilcagh Lakelands Geopark is the perfect location for an activity holiday or just to relax and enjoy beautiful scenery. Given the spectacular and unique landscapes the Geopark has to offer, it is hardly surprising that outdoor recreational facilities are an extremely important part of the Geopark. The vast expanses of open water and the rugged landscapes lend themselves effortlessly to an array of diverse water and land-based activities where there is something to suit everyone regardless of their interests.
