Welcome to the Ring of Gullion

The Ring of Gullion is a unique geological landform, unparalleled elsewhere in Ireland or the UK and was the first ring dyke in the world to be geologically mapped. The ring of low, rugged hills forms a ‘rampart’ around the heather-clad Slieve Gullion mountain. Rich semi-wild habitats of heath, bog and woodland contrast with the neatly patterned fields and ladder farms.

Slieve Gullion’s mysterious reputation arises from its associations with legends and the wider area’s rich archaeological heritage. The area sits to the north of the Northern Ireland border with the Republic of Ireland and it shares many landscape characteristics with the adjacent area of County Louth.
