          Other than round the lough itself, can anybody recommend any particularly nice walks nearby to take our dog on? We've stayed before (without the dog) and all we really found were standard countryside roads linking the tiny villages. There was a "recommended" walk from the Tranquil Otter, though we found that to be heavily overgrown on our previous visit. We'd be willing to take a short drive first if it means a nicer walk. Thanks!

          Hi, we would recommend Talkin Tarn Park ... it's not too far from the Tranquil Otter, and it's a nice, round, flat walk. We take our greyhound there whenever we visit the Tranquil Otter! Hope this helps!

          Not much for a child of that age really. The boat will be too difficult for her and feeding the ducks is a poo hazard. It is a lovely place to walk but in my opinion NOT 5 star. I would advise taking things for her to play... More
