Visit Derrinea

At present there are no visitor facilities or recreational amenities on or near Derrinea Bog.

The bog itself is very dangerous to walk on and unsupervised visits are not encouraged or allowed.

Public access to the bog can only be arranged through the LIFE office, contact 076 1002627 or email

Open days, school tours as well as public walks and talks are planned on Derrinea in the future.

Please check out our events calendar on the main page and also our social media

There is some information signage about the bog at that location. It is accessible from the N83 and R293 roads. Please note this cul-de-sac is used by local residents. There are no parking facilities.

Derrinea raised bog SAC is located just 5km north-northwest of another of our raised bog project sites, Carrowbehy/Caher Bog SAC which is much more visitor friendly.
