“Great outdoors centre.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Always love coming here... Close to the Lurgan motorway exit. Well sign posted. Great place to explore a bit of the outdoors without going along way off... There are some lovely walking paths you can go on around the centre. Bird watching, lots of bird life all year round. Great tourist centre with lots of info on the area. Tourist shop and cafe. Sometimes there are good exhibitions going on. You will find plenty of parking and a play area for the children as well as being on the edge of Lough Neagh. Love it.

“What a nice afternoon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Partner and I out on daytrip called here. We enjoyed our time looking at the scenery, could see right across Lough Neagh to Slieve Gallion mountain behind Cookstown. Good play-area for children, little gift shop combined with tourist information point, but the cafe is really good value for money. Since it was afternoon, we thought we might have a cuppa and a scone, but instead were tempted by the apple crumble (after all, it was Hallowe'en!). I have to report that it was indeed excellent with the accompanying custard topping, especially at a price of £2 per generous portion!! Next time we will go for lunch as there had been a great selection of hot meals, equally modestly priced.

“Excellent!”

It was the perfect place to start sightseeing of the lake. It provided lots of information and maps of the area.
