A fantastic place to visit whether you live close by or are visiting the area. As Monaghan’s largest lake, Lough Muckno is very impressive. Coillte have done a wonderful job here, utilizing this facility to it’s maximum. It was a hive of activity on our visit, meeting fellow buggy pushers, cyclists, anglers, walkers and plenty of families hanging out in the very cool playground. My only wee gripe is the signage for the walks were quite unclear. There are a number of trails but only one deemed accesible for buggies. We explored this one and managed no problem though the terrain is a forest trail which is more rocky in some areas as you walk along the lake.
We had a fabulous family day out here. No doubt you will too. Hopefully the sun shines in all it’s glory as it did for us. A great way to start the summer!
