Lough Derg
Imagine the scene...

A rather gruesome legend has it that the name Lough Derg is derived from the Gaelic word for red- dearg. Apparantly, one-eyed King Eochy Mac Luchta was once asked by poet Athirne for his remaining eye and obliging fellow that he was, he plucked it out, staining the waters of the lake red as a result. Thank fully, the lake's waters have long since returned to their natural sparkling blue/grey hue.

13,000 hectares of clear water; surrounded by beautiful and dramatic countryside in three Irish counties (Clare, Tipperary, and Galway), and traversed by a series of trails, on the water and on land, that provide the opportunity for exhilarating activities and wonderful adventures.

Lough Derg is yours to explore and enjoy. You can do it your way – by canoe, paddle board, under sail, by bicycle or by foot. L ough Derg will excite you to the possibilities of enjoyment and new, unforgettable experiences.
