Walks 5 - Glenevin Waterfall

Walk 5 (printer-friendly version)

Start: at the car park close to Glen House restaurant outside Clonmany village and not far from the unroofed Protestant church at Straid.

Length: about 2 km return; a one hours walk.

Attractions: few walks have such a delicious surprise at the end of the journey. The waterfall at Glenevin is one of the great natural attractions of the area and should not be missed. Suitable for children and all age groups. The peace and seclusion of the area create a heavenly atmosphere.

For many years the waterfall was inaccessible until the local community came to the rescue and laid down a pathway through the wild landscape. The richness of the natural landscape has to be seen to be believed and the waterfall is truly one of the beauties of nature. There is space for cars or even a picnic just before the walk or the option of enjoying the hospitality of Glen House which has an excellent menu for the hungry traveller. The mixture of light and shade create a wonderland of nature for the discerning visitor.
