Enjoy watching of the sun set over Lough Key while the swans glide effortlessly along the shoreline to their high-water nest amongst the reeds.  The swans, along with kingfishers, coots, mallards, moorhens and many other birds are regular features on Lough Key.  They go about their business  undisturbed by your presence  knowing that they are in a safe and secluded environment where guests respect their privacy.
