Northern Ireland, Ireland

About this experience

Carrickreagh Viewpoint Walk is part of the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark.

Ely Lodge Forest can be accessed by both water and land as the forest is located on the southern fringes of Lower Lough Erne.

Access is possible by boat at Carrickreagh Jetty. The lough draws coarse anglers all year round, and several walks pass through these leafy forest tracks.

The forest contains a fine mixture of broadleaved and coniferous trees but of particular note are the mature European larches that thrive here.

Heading towards Carrickreagh Viewpoint, keep an eye out for red squirrels that are active in the forest. The red squirrel’s diet consists of a variety of small seeds and nuts, shoots of young plants and spring blossoms and their dreys (nests) can be seen high in the trees.
