Enjoy Environmental Tours at Lullymore!
Enjoy Environmental Tours at Lullymore! You will learn about the people of the peatlands, how the bogs formed and more. Lullymore really is a special place – a rich, green island surrounded by Ireland’s largest peatland, the Bog of Allen. An environmental tour around the Park allows visitors the opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of Irish bogs and to enjoy the spectacle of a cutaway Peatland coming back to life. Lullymore offers Field trips, Ecology tours and a Peatland Heritage tour and can cater for all types of groups. The Peatland Heritage Railway will be available for groups in 2016 and will offer a 15 minute trip through the scenic peatlands biodiversity area.
There’s lots to explore here…… learn about the people of the Peatlands and how the bogs formed, what they’re made from, the bog’s historic secrets, its industrial past and the beautiful flora and fauna that thrive on peatlands. When you visit the Peatlands exhibition, make sure you look out for wildlife from the observation windows – you will see the forms dug by the hares for shelter, the tide of bog cotton reclaiming its past territory and you might just hear the cry of the curlew or songs of skylarks, lapwing and other birds of the bog.
