While its shallow depth means it’s not ideal for all watersports, it’s the perfect place for a leisurely fishing trip or gentle kayak session. But it’s also easily enjoyed from the water’s edge, on a walk along the shoreline. The Lough Enell Walk, near Carrick, is a lovely 3km trail that leads you along the shore and back, with beautiful views along the way. 

  ​There are also gorgeous views of the lake, along with other walking trails, at Belvedere House. There’s a literary heritage to the lake, too. Local legend tells of the time Jonathan Swift sat on a boat upon Lough Ennell, from which he gazed back at Lilliput and remarked upon how small the people looked from a distance, thus creating the inspiration for Gulliver's Travels.
