Reopening of Geopark sites

Following the easing of some restrictions recently announced by the Northern Ireland Executive Office and the Government of Ireland, sites within the Geopark have been reopened as below.

Before travelling we are advising people to ‘Stay Local, Socially Distance and Leave No Trace’.

Stay Local

  • If you live in the Republic of Ireland, you must not visit any Geopark site outside of the 5k radius limit
  • Expect some changes – most car parks, toilets, on-site visitor facilities, playgrounds and baby changing remain closed
  • Respect the wishes of landowners and local communities

Social Distancing

  • Maintain social distancing from those not living in your household – stay at least 2 metres apart
  • If meeting people from outside your household, please adhere to the relevant Government Guidance
  • Avoid peak times and popular honeypot sites to minimise contact with others

Leave No Trace

Practising Leave No Trace is very simple – leave nature as unchanged by your presence as possible, Leave No Trace of your visit.
