Come with me on a visit to a real working Irish turf bog. Discover the scenery, wildlife and tranquility of the turf bog. Learn all about turf production, the traditional method of cutting with a spade, its cultural and social significance. Our tour is a half day expedition to our bog on the Donegal – Fermanagh border, high above the village of Belleek and in the shadow of Breesy Mountain. We take you beyond the usual tourist routes and will give you a unique experience. You will find yourself in the middle of nowhere yet right at home in the rich landscape. Test your own turf cutting skills as we teach you how to cut it by hand straight from the earth, enjoy a cup of tea with traditional homemade bread, learn how to set the perfect turf fire, discover loughs and see wildlife. As you journey with us along this less trodden path you will be constantly amazed by views of no less than five Counties, mountains, forests as well as Lower Lough Erne.
