Cherry on the Lake

One of Leitrim’s and Irelands most beautiful and scenic lakes with many Islands, including Cherry Island.  Garadice covers 389 hectares and represents one of the premiere bodies of water on the Shannon Erne Blueway. Rich in heritage and local folklore the Lake is dotted with many Islands and crannogs. Canoe the route St Patrick once followed when he crossed the lake on his way to destroy the pagan idol Crom Cruach. The lakeshore and Islands are heavily forested, providing endless tree lined vistas in every direction.  There are shoreline forest trails which offer every opportunity to pull ashore and explore. This is a canoe tour which captures the essence of rural tranquillity and provides a new vista around each and every headland.
