Arts, Crafts and Food Lough Derg Blueway

Lough Derg is a haven for a range of local craft producers, artisan food makers and artists.  Spending some time in this peaceful area allows you an opportunity to really engage in a journey of discovery into a rich vein of surprises in the neighbouring counties of Galway, Clare and Tipperary.  

One can experience all this as part of a cycle or touring route along the lake shores and some examples that we can recommend are:

Bridge House Studios, Killaloe where you can experience Iseult O’Flynn’s printworks

Quay Arts, Killaloe and its range of craft and art works featuring a range of artists

John Hanly Woolen Mills, producers of fine wool cloth and tweed for some of the worlds top designers

Derg Farmhouse Cheese, Nenagh, award winning raw milk cheddar cheese producers

Cais na Tire Sheeps Milk Cheese, Ballinderry, lovingly produced by local farming couple Barry and Lorraine Cahalan

Cole Ceramics, Terryglass and their quirky wheel thrown pieces

A more complete guide of places to visit and other crafts, food and interesting ‘secrets’ to be found all around the lake can be downloaded here

Lough Derg Blueway Launch

It’s official! The Lough Derg Blueway, a collaboration between Galway, Clare and Tipperary County Councils, designed to develop quality on and off water trails and activities all around the majestic Lough Derg, on the River Shannon is open for business.  

The Blueway is a network of canoe trails, walks, cycle routes and tourism service with one aim in mind: ‘Get out and about’!  This area is so accessible, unspoilt and peaceful with some many natural attractions on offer and we believe it is the ideal destination for your activity break.  Just watch the video and see for  yourself!
