Blessingbourne Estate

Blessingbourne Estate is a historic 550 acre country estate in Fivemiletown, in the heart of the picturesque Clogher Valley. This private estate offers walking and mountain bike trails alongside its working farm, all within a welcoming atmosphere.

Blessingbourne’s unique mountain bike trail centre caters for mountain bikers of all ages and abilities with a range of wide flowing blue trails and more technical red trails packed full of exciting trail features such as berms, log rides and rock drops.  It also has a pump track.

For those that prefer two feet to two wheels there is a circular, 2.5 mile long, walking trail which begins in the farm yard and meanders through a mix of woodland and open farmland before crossing the main drive and reaching the beautiful Lough Fadda.

An ideal base for family vacations, activity holidays and short breaks in Northern Ireland the estate has accommodation on site, including five well-appointed apartments and a coach house. There are also numerous activities such as walking, cycling, fishing, pony trekking and golfing either on site or close by.


Blue Trail - 4km
This flowing blue trail is packed full of twists and turns with some exhilarating swoopy sections through the estate woodland. It can be taken as fast or as slow as you like and so is suited to families/groups holding a range of abilities.

Red Trail - 8km
This exciting red trail is packed full of technical trail features including log rides, rock drops, table tops and berms. Geared up with more experienced mountain bikers in mind, this trail boasts a number of more severe optional black features which will be sure to get your heart racing.

Pump Track
The Blessingbourne Pump Track is a short criss-crossing circular trail of rollers and berms where you use your weight distribution on the bike to flow over the features without having to use your pedals. Purists might tackle this pump track without pedaling however it is generally used as a great place to fine tune techniques and line choices before heading out on the trails.

Trails are open all day and available to night ride.
