Lough Derg is famous for its idyllic little towns and villages with small harbours that fringe the shore. Lough Derg is a spectacular lake with lots to see and do. Portumna National Park is well worth a visit and has its own harbour. From Portumna, cruise across the lake to Terryglass and experience a small picturesque Tipperary lakeside village. Stay for lunch before moving on further south to Dromineer. Moor at the new marina facility and enjoy the atmosphere of this small village, complete with pubs and restaurants. Lots of water based activities take place here.
The scenery becomes more dramatic the further south that you travel and the mountains to the south appear to sweep down in to the lough whilst those to the west provide an exciting back drop to the towns of Scarriff, Mountshannon and Williamstown where you can enjoy a short trip to the famous Holy Island. Head on to Garrykennedy before crossing the lake once more to the Connacht shore of Mountshannon. Stay the night in the marina which is a short walk from the town.
Turn now to go north calling at Williamstown before making the trip back up the lough to Portumna.
