Why Glangevlin?

There are few places left on earth that boast Glangevlin’s unique status. While distinctly remote we are central to so much and within an hour you can find yourself in Donegal, Cavan, Sligo, Longford and Enniskillen towns, offering a range of commuter opportunities. We are beside thriving enterprise hubs in Blacklion and Drumshanbo, for any entrepreneur looking to grow a business. Nevin Maguire’s award winning restaurant is your nearest food stop.

For the outdoor enthusiast you are spoilt for choice. Cuilcagh offers excellent hill walking opportunities, The Cuilcagh Mountain Boardwalk sitting behind us has attracted huge numbers to the area. The Shannon flows from Fermanagh into what was traditionally considered its source, the Shannon Pot and we are a part of the Global Geo park networks with our unique peat and limestone landscapes.
The motto of the Global Geoparks Network is “Celebrating Earth Heritage, Sustaining Local Communities”. Geoparks are fundamentally about people and about exploring and celebrating the links between our communities and the Earth. We are a small community that offers a gateway to the past and a viable alternative to present living. We carry strong traditions on ancient Ireland and you will still find many old lifestyle choices and cures in operation.

Glangevlin has rarely had rental accommodation of any scale available. In an effort to save our school people have kindly opened their homes and a small number of houses are available to bring new families into the area. Come and have a look at what’s available.
