The wind farm is located on Mountlucas bog, which consists of 1,100 hectares of cutaway Peatlands near Daingean and is home to Bord na Móna Powergen’s recently completed 80 Mega watt wind farm.
Mount Lucas Wind Farm is open for anybody who would like to explore the area and visit the wind farm. Bord na Móna has created 7km of public walkway-cycle way around the wind farm.
This track way is ideal for a number of activities including: bird watching, nature exploration, cycling and walking. The walkway-cycle way is accessible all year round (except December 21st) during daylight hours – free of charge.
It is a great location for walking and cycling enthusiasts alike; and is a wonderful setting for a family day In 2017, Bord na Móna installed the Learning Hub in Mountlucas Wind Farm. The Learning Hub is a hands-on, fun, educational area where students and teachers can explore and learn more about renewable energy.
