Always walk my dog here. Lots of local wildlife to be seen. Food in the centre is good for a snack after or a full lunch or dinner.

I stopped here for a breakfast with the hope of nice food and nice view of the lake, but the place was sadly empty, apart from a few cyclists that stopped by. The food cheap but nothing special and the view itself was limited. Maybe it was the wrong time to visit but for that experience, I would recommend trying... More

Lovely coffee bar with spectacular view of Lough Neagh . Very child friendly and bringing a prayer into the restaurant was no problem at all. A great place to meet friends for a catch up.

Considering how close the centre is to the M2 it is an amazing oasis of peace and tranquility. Anyone who loves nature or simply enjoys a good walk should make this a regular place to visit. The centre itself is well laid out and the cafe/restaurant offers excellent food at amazingly low prices.

This place is easy to find just off the Lurgan junction of the m1 signed for oxford island. Very much worth a visit and lovely walks around the shore. The restaurant also does lovely Sunday lunches. Recommended

Really great place for photos. There's the small birds who will eat seed out of your hand; the ducks and swans, the landscape; the remains of an old pier; the Loughshore birds from the hides and then you can travel to Pier Rampart to photograph an old pier - not in January though as the wasteland/field I dandered through was...
