Good point P.D. would be nice also to get out to the open sea

Your nearest access to open sea is at Ballyshannon by car. Lough erne flows to North and exits at Ballyshannon but no you can't go by boat.

Camping in or close to lough is available. Try Share Centre I think they can arrange an overnight on an island. I done it before. There was a link on badger site.

This looks a really interesting place for boating I have had plenty emails with advice and links from T 15 (thanks mate) so I am now looking into ferry prices and times from Liverpool for July/August. This could well be a good contender for the Kerny summer holidays and Pottsy and willk thanks for your input on this thread.
