Official Launch of:
“Embrace a Giant Spirit” Experience:
The Lough Neagh Fishing Story
We are absolutely delighted that “Tourism NI” adopted “The Lough Neagh Fishing Story” with us as one of their new “Embrace a Giant Spirit” brand experiences in August 2020.
However, due to the public health situation, we have not yet had opportunity to properly launch or celebrate. Well, now we are going to remedy that.
Join us for our special “Lough Neagh Fishing Package” with The Lock-Keeper’s Cottage Heritage Centre and Tearoom, Toomebridge.
Firstly, enjoy the 2.5 hour Embrace a Giant Spirit boating experience: “The Lough Neagh Fishing Story” with Lough Neagh’s Stories, departing from Ballyronan Marina. (A discount of £10 pp has been applied for this special launch event.)
Then take a ten minute drive to enjoy a sumptuous, traditionally cooked Lough Neagh eel supper (typically so popular at Halloween at the end of eel fishing season!) in The Lock-Keeper’s Cottage.
*Subject to minimum numbers being met.
*£70 per person. Mixed groups. Tour participants in mixed groups are requested to please wear masks.
*£50 per person for boat trip only. £20 per person for eel supper only.

Terms & Conditions
Terms and conditions for all boat trips.
Obviously, boat trips are weather-permitting. We always monitor weather conditions and forecast in advance, and have contingency plans in place, including amending timings and routes to suit weather conditions, to enable us to proceed with the booking if at all possible. In the highly unlikely event of LNS being unable to proceed with the booking for any other reason, a full refund will, of course, be provided to customers (within seven days).
Unfortunately, it will not be possible to issue a refund if a customer cancels a booking with less than forty-eight hours’ notice.
Please come suitably prepared: Health and Safety
Even on a perfectly still, calm summer’s day on land, there can often be cold wind-chill and wave on the Lough. It is essential that tour participants come equipped with flat footwear, and warm, waterproof and windproof clothing - even a little blanket for over their legs. They should also enjoy a moderate level of good physical health.
These proposals do NOT take account of 1m social distancing. Tour participants in mixed groups will be required to wear masks - even Halloween ones.
Unfortunately, these tours would not be suitable for wheelchair users.
We thank you for your understanding and support with these important health and safety matters.
