About the location
AUGHNACLIFFE, COUNTY LONGFORD
Ballinamuck 6 miles; Granard 8.5 miles; Longford 13 miles.
Located midway between the towns of Longford and Cavan is the small, scenic village of Aughnacliffe in North County Longford. The village is regularly referred to as a fisherman’s paradise as there is an abundance of lakes on the doorstep, including the impressive Lough Gowna, perfect for pike, trout and bream fishing. Lough Gowna is also home to the island of Inchmore where the remains of a historic monastery lie. Aughnacliffe is literally translated to ‘Field of the stones’ and named after the two prehistoric portal tombs that are located here, the Aughnacliffe Dolmen and the Cleenrath Dolmen, dating back to roughly 3800BC. Aughnacliffe is also home to Leebeen Park, with a walkway along the lake shore, a children’s play area and outdoor exercise equipment. A wonderful base to discover this scenic region.
