Join our Roscommon branch for a walk at Portrunny on the west side of Lough Ree (leave the N61 at Ballymurray).

Portrunny Bay is located on the shores of Lough Ree in the mid‐Shannon catchment area, it covers an approximate area of 105km2 and stretching for 26km from Lanesboro to Athlone. It comprises important habitats for indigenous plant and animal species, many of which are afforded special protection under the EU Habitats Directive. The lake is an important breeding and feeding area for rare bird species including duck species, golden plover, sand martins, terns, swans and grebes.
