Shanes Castle Lough Trip

The trip to Shane’s Castle on the North Eastern shore of Antrim takes in the sights of Toome Bay and Lough Neagh.

The ruins of the castle stand imposingly close to the shore with cannon pointing towards the Lough. Built in 1345 by a member of the O’Neill dynasty, it was originally called Eden-duff-carrick. Close to the castle we will also see a torpedo platform which was constructed in 1942 during World War Two and was used to test torpedoes manufactured at Antrim. It is now a bird sanctuary. From Shane’s Castle we pass Cranfield and arrive back to Toome.
