The Cladagh Glen, Co. Fermanagh

Walking Route

The Cladagh Glen in Co. Fermanagh takes its name from the River Cladagh which was formed in the depths of the Marble Arch Caves. It is a National Nature Reserve which offers visitors the chance to experience unspoilt views while walking through ash woodland. In the forest, while walking upstream you will come in contact with feral goats, red squirrels and pine martens. You will also see varieties of tree, plant and wildlife species. In particular look out for the Dipper, a small brown bird with a white patch. This unusual bird feeds under water and is often seen perched on a mid-stream rock.

With layered bedding planes of limestone over 300million years old and underground caves which pour water over a natural rock 'staircase', the Cladagh Glen is a must-see for any nature enthusiast. This water, the Cascades, starts its underground journey from a swallow hole called the Rattling Hole, which is located further up the hillside.

Take a tour of the Marble Arch Caves, which feature naturally occurring cave formations, before embarking back down the glen and onward on your Fermanagh journey.
