“Lovely Lough Gara”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

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!

“Away from it all”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

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, beside the short river that links the two lakes. Look out for the Haiku on a stone on the bridge wall.

“A place of astonishing beauty”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

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