It comprises 15,000 hectares that is dominated by Atlantic blanket bog and mountainous terrain, covering a vast uninhabited wild landscape dominated by the Nephin Beg mountain range. The Visitor Centre is the main information point for Wild Nephin Ballycroy National Park. In 2019, the Visitor Centre celebrates its tenth anniversary and will mark the occasion by announcing this unique public art opportunity.
