Visited the Heritage Centre and a very informative guide "Kate" gave us a very nice overview of the place. We found the acoustic guides well worth listening to. Two thumbs up!

The guided walk is interesting. Lots of folklore here. There are swans in the lake and great picture opportunities around the lake. It's small so not a full day. A good break from driving.

Great place for a walk. Especially on a good day. Could do with a more interesting visitor centre. Outdoors is enjoyable. Cant help but feel the place could be pm much more given the history and scenery.

The Lake is beautiful as are the Grounds. We were lucky to be traveling with a very knowledgeable guide who brought us back in History.

Beautiful spot for a picnic or a walk - be it long or short. Little information centre in the style of roundhouses giving lots of info about the area including the lough itself, local legends and nearby standing stones. There's even a little faerie walk...More
