  • We host Bards In The Woods here, a favourite location due to the very scenic native woodland nature trail, the Lough Gill shore with a lovely beach. Fun to picnic on Dooney Rock the serves a grand view of Beezies Island and other scenes of Lough Gill. Good viewpoint seating.
  • Can make a beautiful walk from there, bit by good weather for sure :)
  • Tranquil, lovely spot. Picnic benches but no other facilities.
  • Great little walk for kids and fantastic scenery
