Many watersports can be enjoyed on the lake including boating fishing and kite-surfing. Bike hire is a great way to get around and explore while holidaying on the lake.

The two most famous islands on the lake are Holy Island and Bushy Island. Bushy Island has a pair of white-tailed eagles nesting on it. These amazing birds can be easily viewed using binoculars and scopes from the shore at Mountshannon Harbour. A Bird Viewing & Information Point is set up at Mountshannon Harbour, equipped with telescopes to view the eagles from the shore. White-tail eagles were reintroduced into Ireland quiet recently, if you are lucky and come at the right time of year you may see chicks in the nest.
