About

Walking around the shore of Lough Macrory is a refreshing and relaxing way to unwind. Enjoy the flora and fauna of this beautiful, unspoilt freshwater environment and enjoy the changing views of the lough from around its shoreline. You might be lucky enough to glimpse the electric blue flash of a kingfisher or see the swans and wild geese that visit or the wild duck that hatch and rear their young at the north side of the lough. You're sure to see the indigenous brown trout surface for food.
