“Lough Neagh’s Stories” at the Lough Neagh Artisans Market

We are excited to be part of the first Lough Neagh Artisans Market at the picturesque Lock Keeper’s Cottage, on the banks of the river Bann, on Sunday 22nd May.
Almost forty traders attending, made up of Lough Neagh Artisans group members and traders from further afield.

It promises to be a day of family fun with live entertainment at the market.

Sail leisurely down Toome Canal and through the lock-gate. Then gain a snapshot of Toome Bay, with a practising Lough Neagh fisherman as your captain and guide. Sail back up Toome Canal, this time disembarking outside the lock-gate. Then stroll back to The Lock-Keeper's Cottage.



Pick-up is at the pier outside The Lock-Keeper's Cottage. Toome

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.
