Lackavrea is located approximately 3km north east of Maam Cross in the heart of Connemara.

Site Description

This is a primitive recreation site but one which offers the visitor an opportunity to get into the heart of the forest and bog lands of this part of Connemara. The main item of interest is the 4km bog bridge trail that takes the walker into the heart of this remote forest following the Folore River. The hiker or fisherman who ventures into Lackavrea will be rewarded with magnificent prospects, good fishing, solitude and peace but should also be prepared for rain, wet bogs and midges.

How do I get there?

From Oughterard, take the n59 west for about 12km, passing three lakes on the left hand side. As you approach the first lake on the right, veer right and follow the old railway line - please close any gates you may encounter. The forest entrance to Lackavrea is 2km further along this road.
