Derries Wetland

Lough Boora’s landscape at the Derries Wetland is one of the newest sites in the park and is still in its infancy. The site is 97 hectares consisting of permanent wetland, naturally re-colonising grassland and birch-willow woodland. The amenity is dominated by an exposed esker ridge and the newly created wetland.

Due to its isolated location, the Derries provide an ideal sanctuary where wildlife can exist with minimal human disturbance. The wetland is a limited access site situated off the R357 Boora road and is an area reserved for wildlife. The new cycle track linking Boora to Turraun offers excellent views of the Derries but we ask you to respect the ethos of this wetland and refrain from visiting the site itself.
