Marlbank Forest

Marlbank Forest is a small group of forests that includes the Cladagh Glen and the Marble Arch National Nature Reserve. It forms part of the UNESCO Marble Arch Caves global geopark.


At the head of the gorge, accessible by a linear path, the River Cladagh emerges from the rocks through a spectacular feature which gives its name to the site. This path forms part of section 1 of the Cuilcagh Way as well as being part of the Ulster Way. Visitors can use this route to access the Marble Arch caves.

To arrange a special event or activity in this forest, you should apply in the first instance to the Recreation Manager, Forest Service NI at Inishkeen House.

Such activities may include sporting events or educational visits.

There may be restrictions on access to parts of our forests from time to time to facilitate forest operations. Please adhere to safety signage which will be posted for your safety.
