Clogherbog is a townland in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. It is part of the civil parish of Boho, and contains the sub-townlands of Carrickrory, Lough Nacloyduff, Loughanquin, Loughnamanfin and Tullylaur.[1] It is situated within Fermanagh and Omagh district.

The area is notable for the discovered remnants of ancient civilisations, including an Iron Age wooden cauldron[2] and the lettered cave at Lough Nacloyduff (the lake of the dark caverns), which contains primitive inscriptions.[1] The origins of this cave have been speculated on since a visit by William Wakeman in 1850.[3][4]

Other features include the Mass rock which is inscribed with the date of 1777 and the Lake of the Fair Woman (Irish: Loch na mban fionn) which is the subject of an old tale.[1]
