The Kingfisher Cycle Trail was the first long distance cycle trail in Ireland and follows minor country roads through the border counties of Fermanagh, Leitrim, Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan. The trail travels through landscape dotted with rivers and lakes. Attractions include the Lough Scur Dolmen, Castle Coole and the Marble Arch caves.
This unique mixture of lake-lands, canal side tracks, rolling hills, leafy lane-ways and mountain climbs make the Kingfisher Trail the ideal choice for all levels of Cyclist. The overall figure of 8 encompasses a number of shorter trails which are designed for anything for 1 day to 8 day tours. The Kingfisher Cycle Trail is over 300 miles of public roadway winding through rural countryside, Lake-lands, Atlantic Coast and Mountain Trail.
Independent travel offers the best opportunity for those who like complete freedom. Using the Kingfisher Map, the Kingfisher Accommodation Guide and the clearly way-marked route, navigation is child’s-play.
