One of the best ways to experience the magic of Lough Derg is to visit the beautiful hamlet of Garrykennedy. This quaint Irish village is a firm favourite for many visitors to the lake and it isn’t difficult to see why.

The relaxing atmosphere of the village makes for the perfect atmosphere for a family day at the lakeside, while the wooded trails that hug the shoreline are perfect for a leisurely wander in nature. Then of course there’s the craic you’ll find the famous pubs in the village, Ciss Ryan’s and Larkin’s Thatched Cottage & Restaurant.

Whatever your reason for visiting, you are sure to fall in love and return many times.

Top Tip: Keep an eye out for the White-tailed Sea Eagle, who has been spotted in the region.
