Explore some of Mayo’s rich bogs! This trip will be led by NPWS District Conservation Officer Irene O’Brien who works on the Wild Atlantic Nature LIFE project (www.wildatlanticnature.ie)
The trip will explore Claggan Mountain coastal trail, 8km south of the Ballycroy Visitor Centre on the N59.
The guided walk will be on a boardwalk through Atlantic Blanket Bog in the Wild Nephin National Park. There are stunning views of Bellacragher Bay and Achill Island, and the Nephin Mountains. We will take a close look at the Atlantic Blanket bog habitat and discuss the local wildlife, blanket bog restoration and the threats facing these important wetland habitats.
The walk is gentle and mainly on boardwalk but warm clothing and wet gear is required as are good sturdy footwear. It should take no longer than 2 hours.
Anymore information on the trail is described on our website
