Minister Michael Ring turned the sod in celebration of the new 5-acre sanctuary in Mulranny. It stretches from the N59 to near the Great Western Greenway up the hill.  It is a terraced landscape that was once farmed, abandoned for decades, and now brought back to life. Panoramic views of Clew Bay are seen from the top end entrance.

It has been designed so that any Greenway user, whether on bike or foot, has easy access to the Sanctuary and a short walk on to the Centre from the base.  Here you are invited to explore the exhibit space, see a short film, browse the gift shop and visit the goat playground.
