History of Cullenagh

Dawn Run

The farm and stables at Cullenagh developed around a milling industry stretching back to the 17th century, which, through the ages, played a significant role in the region's history.   

Today, landmarks associated with the production of paper, corn and wool fringe the woodland and riverside trails. 



The Quarry

Steam trains once had a stopping point on the Quarry Trail, which follows the faintly visible remains of an earlier steel, mill whose arches and tunnel are neatly woven into the surrounding farmland. 

The railway line once linked Fishguard Port to Lismore, County Waterford. Riding trails now follow paths over and under its old stone bridges.   

The Mill

The skillfully restored remains of Fairbrook Mill also fringe today's equestrian trail, which follows paths alongside the historic Mill Street Houses and old chimney before cutting through arable land, woodland and alongside the ancient mineral spa at Gortnaclode.
