Nature Trail Belleek
This trail is in a wooded area of the former Belleek estate and is a mixed woodland with conifer trees such as Norway spruce, Scots pine silver fir together with beech, oak and ash. There are many historical features, from bygone days, to be seen along the trail including a hermitage, ice house and a wall built during the famine in Ireland (1845) as a relief scheme. Each man involved on the building of the wall received a bowl of Indian meal for his days work.
