While you are in the Lough Gur area why not spread your wings a little further and visit Old Irish Ways Museum located just 3km from the lake front Heritage Centre. The town of Bruff is also a must see and has a highly reviewed restaurant at the end of the town called the Old Bakehouse. The ancestors of President John F. Kennedy moved from Lough Gur to Bruff where they made this quaint town their home. Tours are on offer from the local community guides.
The Medieval town of Kilmallock is well know to scholars from near and far and offers lovers of history and archaeology a delicious selection to choose from including the Abbey, tower houses and castles. Lough Gur highly recommends lunch or dinner in Deebert House Hotel during your visit to the ever interesting Kilmallock.
