Beyond the end of the road

The Lost Valley offers a unique window into the cultural heritage of The West of Ireland. Indeed it is in itself, arguably the finest memorial of The Great Famine that remain today. Visit the ruined famine village and see the multitude of potato ridges that have lain undisturbed and unattended for nearly two centuries.

As The Lost Valley is now an active working farm, visitors can experience life on the farm with pet lamb feeding for younger adventurers, a working sheep dog demonstration and a sheep shearing demonstration in season on request.
