Follow the pathway adorned with carved sculptures of fish, birds, monks, fairies, and the mythical mermaid goddess Dana, and you will find a monastic round tower and a summer house built by the O’Neill’s.

Meet the Fishermen: Lough Neagh

A truly authentic Northern Irish trip for those who want to enliven their senses and get first hand experience of life on Lough Neagh. Meet the fishermen on the Lough as they set lines and go about their work, as fishermen have been doing for thousands of years.

Church Island

Church Island sits in the scenic nature reserve Lough Beg, North of Lough Neagh. The church here, called Inis Taoide, is over 1000 years old. There is so much to discover here and experience in this site of pilgrimage.
