Cavan Burren Park
Cavan Burren Park opened to the public in May 2014. But the site itself goes back a little longer…probably around 340 million years to the Carboniferous period when this whole area was covered in a shallow tropical sea. Today you can experience a wonderful interpretative centre and five amazing walking trails around Cavan Burren Park, all highlighting the spectacular prehistoric tombs, fantastic geology and special stories that make this such a unique environment.
Cavan Burren Park has amazing examples of megalithic tombs, stone walls, ancient rock art, glacial erratics and breathtaking views of Cuilcagh Mountain and the surrounding landscapes of Lough MacNean, Cavan and Fermanagh and the wider Global Geopark.
Located just outside Blacklion in West Cavan, visitors will enjoy exploring the visitor centre and four walking trails (inc. multi-access trail). Interpretation along the way will assist you in unravelling the intriguing layers of human history as you walk.
