Volunteers explore Glencar valley and waterfall

After the end of our very fun last session with students in the Organic Centre we decided to have a bit of adventure and went to Glencar waterfall. Although it’s still February, it felt like real spring! We definitely missed sunny days like this.

The waterfall is just fabulous. There is something very special in its sounds and smells, it made us feel full of energy and joy.

We can confidently recommend this place to anyone visiting Leitrim. The combination of mountains, water and green grass is breathtakingly beautiful.

Being close to Sligo on such a nice day we couldn’t miss a chance to go to the beach. Strandhill looked stunning in the sunset light.

At the end of this much needed getaway we could only say that we should do these little trips more often and explore the Irish nature to the fullest while we’re here.

Glencar waterfall is situated near Glencar Lake, west of Manorhamilton.  Its beauty served as an inspiration to the William Butler Yeats and features in his poem ‘The Stolen Child’.

After a long seminar session in Grange, on the return journey to Drumshanbo, the EVS volunteers took the time to travel down the valley to see the marvelous Glencar waterfall that can only be viewed after a short lovely wooded walk from the car park.

It is a lovely place, where you can enjoy of the waterfalls while you get the blow of the breeze. A pleasant loop turns around leaving you in the car park. There, another of the charms of the valley is the view of the fascinating Crockauns Mountains, a Natural Heritage Area.
