We visit very regularly for family walks, it’s located under three minutes drive from the Lurgan turn off from the motorway. You instantly get teleported into a tranquil surrounding and the walks are spectacular!

Excellent food, very clean facilities, disabled accessible, great gift and information area. Best of all- no entry fee! Wildlife abounds, especially the birdlife.

Overlooking Lough Neagh, the biggest lake in Britain, there are miles of walks and boardwalk to watch wildlife. The visitor centre is right in the waters edge and there are also hides. There is a great reasonably priced cafe with excellent scones and tea.

On the shores of Lough Neagh this is a hidden gem. Lots of wild life and great walks. There is also a well stocked gift shop and a tea/coffee stop. Well worth the visit.
