Lacken Hill

Lacken Hill is set in a beautiful landscape, overlooking the historic Norman town of New Ross. From the 198m high summit there are panoramic views of the south-east including the Comeragh Mountains, Brandon Hill, the Blackstairs Mountains and the Barrow estuary in the distance.

There are four trails that will take you through forests rich in wild herbs, fungi, berries and wildlife, green meadows, country roads, and historic streets. Nestled beneath the hill are three ráths or ringforts which are understood to be under the protection of the Aes Sídhe or fairy folk.
