  • Just love lough Eske, everyday is different from dawn to dusk winter to summer no two days are the same. Some lovely walks nearby through the woods or the boardwalk near the castle.  more »
  • Even if the road is sometimes too small to let 2 cars crossing, it's worth driving to and around the lake; the landscapes is amazing and it is very quiet. I loved to get there  more »
  • You can walk, bike or drive around this spectacular area. The area is beautiful and peaceful. Check out the solis castle and Harvey's before you leave. Definitely worth your time.  more »
