Lough Owel by Caroline Coffey

Lough Owel is a mesotrophic lough in the Midlands of Ireland, situated north of Mullingar. Water from Lough Owel feeds the Royal Canal, a canal crossing Ireland from Dublin to the River Shannon. Access to the lake can be gained from a lovely carpark entrance and pier to the south of the N4 Mullingar to Longford route.

Lough Owel is also known for its Diving Board located on the N4 to Longford route, you might even be lucky to have some Tea/Coffee and Ice-cream after your swim at Lough Owel during the summer months from The Coffee Man
