Drummin Bog is the only raised bog in South Co. Carlow, in the South East of Ireland:

Drummin Bog is located in South Co. Carlow adjacent to the River Barrow, a couple of miles south of St. Mullins, Co. Carlow and approximately equidistant between the towns of Graigenmanagh Co. Kilkenny and New Ross, Co. Wexford.


The Site:

The area for survey comprises approximately 6.7hectares, roughly 5h composed of drained partly cutaway bog (approx 200m x 250m) and 1.6h of mixed woodland and scrub.


Access to the Bog from the road is by forestry track. Access on the bog is very difficult due to the stepped cut away bog, presence of many drains, presence of very soft ground and felled brash from earlier tree/scrub clearance.

PLEASE NOTE: Access to Drummin Bog is limited due to the sensitive nature of the habitat and its status as a wildlife reserve. Great precaution must be taken in visiting the bog due to its unmarked deep drains, and other hazards. It is therefore recommended people do not walk on the bog alone. Children must always be supervised and no dogs please as efforts are in place to encourage birds to return. Thank you for understanding. In time, a woodland walkway is envisaged. The Drummin Bog Project is in its very early stages.
