Welcome to the Lough Neagh and Lower Bann Wetlands

Lough Neagh is situated in the centre of Northern Ireland. It is the largest freshwater lake in the British Isles and is very shallow for its size. The Lower Bann River leaves Lough Beg at Toome, widens at Lough Neagh and the Estuary before it enters the Atlantic to the north between Portstewart and Castlerock
