The 'Stairway To Heaven' 


The Cuilcagh Boardwalk Trail meanders through one of the largest expanses of blanket bog in Northern Ireland, traversing over tracks, boardwalk and staircase.

You will explore, discover and experience a different world along this walk, its scenic, enchanting and ever-changing landscape will captivate you.

Your final ascent is via a steep section of steps, these are not for the faint of heart! As you steadily climb you meander and weave your way through a rugged boulder landscape to eventually reach the viewing platform. The viewing platform positioned precariously at the edge of the mountain plateau offers breath-taking views over the surrounding landscape sculpted during the last Ice Age approximately 13,000 years ago.

Plan your journey! Set in the picturesque Cuilcagh Mountain, just a short journey (ADD distance from your Hotel) from Enniskillen town in County Fermanagh. You need to be well equipped for this walk wearing comfortable walking shoes, waterproof clothing, snack and don’t forget the camera!
