One thing you perhaps don’t associate with a trip to Ireland is a long walk along a clean, unspoilt stretch of golden-sanded beach.

This freshwater lake is the largest in the region and home to two islands on which the ruins of a monastery and a castle can be visited. Take a boat onto the water, or just walk the shores but bring your camera - this is a great spot for photography.
