For a commanding and spectacular view of Lough Derg and the surrounding countryside, the village of Portroe offers a marvellous setting.

The “Lookout” on the road between Ballina and Portroe in Co. Tipperary offers magnificent views across Lough Derg to Clare and up the River Shannon towards Galway. An excellent viewing point with panoramic views of Lough Derg, there are map boards and picnic tables here making it a good place to stop on your journey between Nenagh and Ballina/Killaloe. Photographers can capture magnificent shots of cruisers navigating their way up and down the lake. The Lookout sits above Castlelough burial ground and Castlelough Amenity Park.
