About Foyle Trails

Foyle Trails was  set up in 2016 to help discerning visitors discover how the unique ecology and archaeology of the River Foyle`s upland tributaries can be linked to the ancient mythology of the region.

 Martin the owner and guide with Foyle Trails holds a B.Sc. in Environmental Science and Post Grad Diploma in Paleao Ecology and is also a qualified Bord Failte – Landscape and Countryside guide with over 18 years of experience in helping visitors discover the ancient history of the Foyle uplands. The tours and experiences that I guide are as sustainable as possible. With sustainability in mind I now include optional small scale habitat regenerative work in the tours/experiences that I guide.  

My main activities however remain – the exploration of prehistoric ritual sites and habitats where visitors discover how ecology, archaeology and mythology merge in the scenic landscapes we travel through.

My passion is the delivery of unique small group experiences, to visitors that want to explore “off the beaten track” locations in the Foyle river system by providing visitor alternatives to Northern Ireland`s crowded ” Honey Pot  attractions.”
