The Lost Valley has remained largely untouched since the villagers were evicted and driven out during ‘The Great Famine’ of the mid 1800’s. The tumbled down walls of their cabins, the multitude of potato plots they left behind, even the stones removed from the rocky soil remain in clusters, exactly as they left them, giving testament to the hardships they endured.

All groups are accompanied by two guides, usually Maureen and Gerard Bourke,

who are the farm owners.

The Bourke Family offer a fully guided cultural adventure, on well developed trails, conducted at a leisurely pace that is suitable for all ages.

Visitors will experience scenery that will take your breath away.

Pristine sandy beaches, waterfalls and woodlands on the slopes of Mweelrea, the highest mountain in the west of Ireland and enjoy unique views of the Killary fjord.

It is essential to book in advance

as this is an active working farm
