Fields Visitors Centre.
is a relatively easy walk, offering a choice of either 8 or
10 km with a few cut off points if required, with stunning
views of Kilcummin and Lacken strands, surrounding countryside
and Donegal and Sligo on a good day. It includes a wealth
of archaeological features, Court Tomb with associated stone
wall enclosure, house structure and Neolithic walls.
Rathlacken tomb was excavated in the 1990's by Greta Byrne,
uncovering a circular open stone court opening onto three
chambers. Prior to excavation all that was visible was a 34metre
long stone peat covered cairn, aligned east … west with a
very large stone slab protruding above. It is easily accessible
from walk route.
is also now available to the 18 th century monument known
locally as ‘The Gazebo', built as a folly for Sir John Palmer
who then resided at Castlelacken Demense. Greta is happy to
share her wealth of knowledge and answer any questions you
may have during the walk.
route follows tarred and bog roads and green track, so hiking
shoes or trainers are perfect. Do bring fluid and snack.
the walk you can, if you wish, relax on the beach, visit Lacken
Pier and view monuments there ‘The Big Wave 28th October'.
Also admire the stain glass windows and bog oak carvings in
Lacken Church or have a picnic in the amenity area beside
the car park. Come along and enjoy, all welcome.
