A Trip To The “Wee” Lough
Passing under the majestic Bann Bridge (built 1846) as you leave Portglenone Marina, you’ll view the ancient woodland of Portglenone Forest, renowned for its thick swathe of bluebells in April/May. As you travel along the meandering river to Newferry you will enjoy the wildlife and scenery, absorbing the heritage and culture of the region.
Immerse yourself in the stories of Mesolithic man’s arrival to Ireland and the importance of the River Bann and Lough Neagh to their existence. You may catch a glimpse of the famed Whooping Swans and a range of other birdlife that enjoy the tranquil environment along this picturesque section of the River Bann, before returning to Portglenone Marina.
