Cuilcagh Scenic Drive – a 50 Mile Drive Around The Highlands of Fermanagh and Cavan
This 50 mile / 80km drive around the beautiful Cuilcagh Mountians of Counties Fermanagh and Cavan encompasses all of the main attractions and viewpoints of the area.
- Explore landscapes ranging from the wondeful limestone pavements of the Marlbank and the Cavan Burren to the Spectacular underground world of the Marble Arch Caves.
- Tour the stunning house and gardens at Florencecourt or visit the old spa wells of picturesque Swanlibar.
- Stop at Shannon Pot and reflect on the old legend associated with this, the source of Ireland’s longest river, or visit the many ancient monuments left behind by generations long forgotten.
The Cuilcagh area offers a range of guest accommodation and restaurants, notably in the villages of Blacklion, Belcoo and Swanlibar. Although only 50 miles long, this drive has so much to offer that a full day won’t do it justice.
The starting point for this exploration of the Cuilcagh Mountains is the small car park at Cladagh Bridge on the road between Florencecourt and Blacklion. However, you can join the drive at any point and explore the many attractions the area has to offer.
