Lough Derravaragh

September 2010

We don't know of too many swimming spots in Westmeath, so Lough Derravaragh is a decent enough place to get a dip.

This looks much more like a fishing and boating lake but for swimmers there is the advantage of a slipway from the large car park which will lead you into the water.

Apart from the car park we saw a solitary picnic table but there is a rough grassy area to sit on after you have had your swim.

Derravaragh is located on the R394 and coming from Mullingar watch out for a left turn signposted for the lake a few kilometres before Castlepollard.
