-A Peaceful and Tranquil Location

-Plus Privacy Policy and GDPR Compliance

Jackie’s clinic “Heather Edge” is based in a peaceful, tranquil and therapeutic location.

The natural beauty of the area has long been recognised and valued by both locals and visitors and was an obvious base for the IPCC Bog of Allen Nature Centre located at the top of the lane. The area is particularly popular with walkers who value the flat yet varied terrain.



“Heather Edge” is adjacent to Lullymore West Bog and Lodge Bog with their rugged and fertile beauty. Over 300 species of bird, plant, insect and animal are found here and the habitats include grassland, scrub woodland, bare peat, pools and ditches. If you are lucky you might see the rare Marsh Fritillary butterfly or hear the evocative cry of the Curlew.


It provides a perfect setting for “Mindfulness” or simple relaxation and reflection. Whether you enjoy walking, picnics or simply watching nature, spending some time here is highly recommended. In addition to the Bog of Allen Nature Centre which is open to the public, there is also the nearby Lullymore Heritage and Discovery Park.
