What an stunningly amazing lake. It’s salt water. I went moonlight kayaking and it was a magical experience. Naoise and Alice were so welcoming and helpful. We had all the right gear. You cannot visit Lough Hyne without booking a kayaking trip

Beautiful place, great views, especially on a sunny, warm day. It's worth taking the path to the top to make the most of the view.

An extremely beautiful location to go for a walk. If you’re not in the mood for hills it is nice just to walk out towards Barlogue pier or if you feel like hills there is no nicer walk in the world. The view from the...More
