Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands with its myriad of land and water trails. If you’ve still got some juice left in the tank after conquering Quest Lough Derg the region is renowned for boat trips, water sports, great fishing and numerous walks.
Heritage and history
Delve into the region’s rich and varied attractions by taking a visit to Brian Boru’s Fort near Killaloe, the 14th century Quin Abbey, Nenagh Castle or take in the exhibitions at Nenagh’s Heritage Centre & Gaol.
Food, glorious food!
Go on, you deserve it after your great achievement. There is an abundance of gastro pubs, cafes and restaurants all around the region waiting for you. Why not visit Flanagan’s on the Lake in Ballina(right beside the start/finish line for Quest Lough Derg as it happens!), Larkins in Garrykennedy, Lake Café in Dromineer, Peppers Bar & Restaurant in Feakle or Nuala’s in Tuamgraney.
Something for everyone
If you are bringing the family there is lots to keep them entertained for the weekend. Indulge them with a free factory tour of Wilde Irish Chocolates in Tuamgraney, if you’re brave enough take them on a banana boat at Aquasplash in Dromineer, zip wire at Derg Isle Adventure centre in Scariff or a leisurely boat ride with Killaloe River Cruises might be more your taste. Any of these options are sure to be a hit!
