The Mountshannon region is lovely and seems to be packed with things to do-holiday was coming to an end so wasn't able to stay more than one night and had to get going in the morning but am planning to return for an explore.
For people wanting a base in this area or for those on a more circuitous itinerary Hawthorn Lodge is ideal. It is located very close to the lake and on the main road along the West side of Lough Derg. The B&B has some great "What's on" guides and what these can't tell you Ursula or Noel most likely can.
This B&B is very clean and welcoming and Ursula and Noel really go out of their way to make your stay top notch!
