With childrens summer camps, adult courses, paddle picnics, family fun days, festival entertainment and private group outings happening throughout the summer, LDW is a must for anyone visiting the Lough Derg area that wants to get out and enjoy the Lough differently. We operate from locations such as Terryglass, Dromineer, Portumna, Banagher and Kilgarvan, exploring the Lough bespoke trips that allow you to experience Lough Derg like never before!

Hens/Stags, Corporate Team Building and Birthday Parties are just some of the groups that have tailored special sessions but please enquire for more information on what Lough Derg Watersports can do for you.

Sightings of white tailed eagles, leaping trout and slinking wildcats are commonplace on our sessions and that’s not even touching on the wildfowl to be seen, from families of Grebes to flocks of 40 swans or more.

LDW abides strictly with a Leave No Trace ethos to have minimal impact on the beautiful surroundings of Lough Derg and encourage others to do the same.
