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.
