The area is steeped in history and folklore. Neolithic cairns, Dolmans and Ring Forts testify to the rich heritage of the people who lived here for thousands of years. Diarmuid and Grainne’s cave, the highest cave in Ireland, is at the famous Gleniff Horseshoe just 10 minutes drive from the Benwiskin Centre. Foundations of an old Barytes Mill Site is at the base of the Gleniff Horseshoe Drive.
