On the Jetty at Toome Canal, you'll be welcomed onboard to a memorable experience, From Lock to Lough. Along this tranquil section of canal, immerse yourself in the beauty of this now quiet waterway, which at one time would have been a busy industrial thoroughfare.
As you approach the Lock gates, meet the Lock Keeper and hear about the heritage associated with the locks along the Lower River Bann, a brief overview of the management of water levels in the region and the controls required to ensure safe passage to and from Lough Neagh. The remaining journey along the canal, as it opens onto the wide expanse of Lough Neagh, will take your breath away!
During your trip on Lough Neagh, the largest lake in the UK and Ireland, you will be enthralled by the stories of the industries that rely so greatly on the lough and the connection to the communities and the people who live, work and play in and around the lough. Marvel at the regions' heritage and culture, as evidenced by the array of ancient religious sites, medieval ruins and historic houses. You might even catch a glimpse of a Lough Neagh fisherman as you hear how Lough Neagh, the largets wild eel fishery in Europe, manages this and other freshwater fisheries on the lough.

The Spirit of Northern Ireland is Giant. And we can all take small steps to protect it. So let's make a pledge to do what we can!
