Activities

Dolphin Watching

The Shannon Estuary is home to many bottlenose dolphins and Dolphin Watching
Whale Watching near Black Head.

Dysert O’Dea Archaeology Trail

This award winning development outside Corofin is well worth a visit. There is a Tower House, St Tola’s Cross and a spectacular Romanesque door way among many other well preserved historic and pre- historic sites along the trail.

Fishing

The lakes of Corofin, especially Lough Inchiquin have been immortalised in Barker’s The Angler’s Paradise. Brown trout up to 3lbs have been taken from Inchiquin. Best months are February to May and September. Excellent coarse fishing throughout the season. Tackle for sale and boats for hire in Corofin

Bird Watching

The Corofin Wetlands are internationally important wildfowl sites and a great spot for bird watchers. Thousands of colourful ducks, hundreds of swans, tens of geese and occasional rarities arrive in winter.

Music

Apart from a lively pub scene with traditional music on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, we have our own Teach Ceoil with regular music and dance sessions on Thursdays during July and August.

Walking

Marie’s favourite walk. If you want to take a short walk in a quiet and beautiful spot. Starting in Corofin Village walk to Lough Inchiquin car park and continue through the stiles on your left past the water works building and through a couple of fields and a small wood full of bluebells and primroses in Spring (all the time keeping to the shore of the lake) until you reach the Mill bridge. Turn left after the last stile and left again for the road back to the village. Round trip takes one and a half hours. Wonderful!
