Lovely place to spend a couple of hours in peace. Bring some lunch and enjoy alongside the lake. There is a nice forest trail as well for you to experience the peacefulness of nature.

This is a lovely piece of Nature’s real estate with hiking trails and an abundance of peace and quiet. The air smelled sweet and watching the anglers was relaxation personified. Our main purpose for the visit was to see Killykeen Cottage but that is another story.
