The Poets Trails and other walks

The Ring of Gullion lies within a region long associated with an ancient frontier that began with the earliest records of man’s habitation in Ireland. It was along these roads and fields, and over these hills and mountains, that Cúchulainn and the Red Branch Knights, the O’Neills and O’Hanlons roamed, battled and died. The area, which has always represented a frontier from the ancient Iron Age defences of the Dorsey, through the Anglo- Norman Pale, and latterly the modern border, is alive with history, scenic beauty and culture. This area reflects the mix of cultures from Neolithic to the present, while the rolling countryside lends itself to the enjoyment of peaceful walks, excellent fishing and a friendly welcome at every stop.
