We found this place online to as a place near Carrick On Shannon to horse riding. There were a large group of us (17) for a 30th birthday party, but they were very accommodating. While a proportion of our group were horse rifing, the others...More

If you are looking for a totally unspoilt and virtually untouched natural beauty spot then this is the place. Absolutely steeped in un-commercialised history and archaeology including untouched crannog sites, Moygara Castle, Clogher stone fort, Clogher holy well, Carantemple burial ground and standing stones and...More

Lough Gara Adventure Centre great for kids, they loved the shooting, archery and horse riding. Lovely couple/family running it and so patient with the kids, giving them loads of attention and time. Great little animal farm, hard to get the kids to leave

send all my visitors down to Lough Gara as it is only 10mins drive from my home. The fisherman among them are happy to while away a few hours and the younger members take a barbecue when the weather is good to just chill out

Since this is my area, I am definitely a bit biased. My granny's house is on the shore of Lough Gara. Good fishing, lovely views, crannogs and islands. Love It!

Scene of ancient lake-dwellings from ancient times, this has been a centre of habitation for millenia. Read up on the lake dwellings of Ireland, and then walk or cycle around the lower lake and absorb the sense of ancient history. Picnic area at Clooncunny Bridge,...More

What a peaceful place with such wonderful views all around, and not merely the lake itself. Tranquil.
