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!

Cycling Holidays in Ireland

Cycling Holidays in Ireland

Ireland has so much to offer regarding scenery and people and sometimes when we drive along our country roads we miss real gems and insights into the locality. Cycling holidays are something we love to see our guests do and the quiet lanes and roads around Terryglass and Lough Derg are lovely places to see at ‘pedal pace’. We do, of course, supply some bikes of our own free of charge however we often have more serious cycling enthusiasts who bring their own ‘magnificent carbon machines’ !

We were delighted to read this article about cycling opportunities in the Slieve Bloom mountains in the Irish Times  and as this area is on our doorstep we can only concur with the positive sentiments!  The Slieve Bloom area is a wonderful, unspoilt area and offers so much for walkers, nature enthusiasts  and now, cyclists.  

So grab your bike, don the lycra, put on your helmet and when you return to your cottage here at Fuchsia Lane Farm you can ease those muscles in the sauna.  What you do next is up to you!
