An amazing viewpoint over Co. Fermanagh – not to be missed! Conagher Forest is a great discovery. One of the best forests we have visited in Northern Ireland. Does not seem to be well marked on the maps – so the locals know of it – but not many more – good for us!! 🙂 We filmed a short 360-degree video of the location. If you enjoy walks in forests around Northern Ireland or Ireland – this is one to add to the list.
This 1,060 hectare Conagher forest is part of the West Fermanagh Upland group of forests that stretches from Lough MacNean to the shores of Lough Erne below the Magho cliffs in Lough Navar. It is the largest continuous forest in Northern Ireland. This is predominantly a coniferous forest with large open bogland tracts and wooded gullies.
The Correll Glen Nature Reserve lies to the northwestern edge of this forest and a waymarked trail takes the visitor into this important example of a remnant upland oakwood. Next to this along the Glenasheever Road is a native woodland restoration site.
Almost all those who might have been there, we were mesmerised by the view and fell in love with it. We could actually sit in the same spot with a cup of tea and stare for the rest of our lives.
