Best 3 hour walk i have done in Ireland. Fantastic experience and Ger our host was extremely entertaining. The story of the Lost Valley of Uggool captures ones imagination and I would definitely recommend a visit.

This is a brilliant 3 hour walk through arguably one of the most unique pieces of historic landscape, certainly on this island, arguably, anywhere!

Ger, the guide, host, owner, farmer, shepherd, raconteur was in his element-a big group, good(ish) weather, and cooperative dogs and sheep.

We've been on a dozen or more visits/tours/trips over the last 5 years in this area, and this certainly ranked among the most memorable.

If you are within 50 miles of Louisburg, then DONT MISS IT,!,, it's unforgettable

Phenomenal walking tour with informative, entertaining & relaxed guide. The breathtaking views and experience of light repast in an ancestral home was the best experience on vacation I have EVER HAD! THIS IS A MUST DO!
Slow pace and frequent stops make this event accessible to anyone.
