Heritage

Cornagee translates from Irish as ‘rounded windy hill’ and on many days of the year you can see why! Due to the elevated location of Cornagee Viewpoint, it offers fantastic views over the surrounding landscape. From here, straight in front of you is Upper Lough MacNean and to your left you will see Lurganacally Mountain.

The characteristic u-shaped valley of Glenfarne can be clearly seen from the Cornagee Viewpoint. This valley would have been originally formed by a river, but during the last glaciation, huge ice sheets would have taken advantage of this route and scoured out the huge u-shaped valley that we see today. In clear weather, the mountains of south Donegal may be seen to the north-west and Truskmore, guarding over Sligo town to the west.
