As Ireland’s premier wetland site, the Inch Wildfowl Reserve is a Special Protected Area under the EU
Birds Directive. It is an internationally significant destination for thousands of migrating birds from three different continents; including geese, swans, ducks and other waders. The infrastructure at the reserve caters for outdoor recreational activity such as walking, running and cycling on a popular 8km looped path with seating, and viewpoints. There are also a number of bird hides which are open to the public. This scenic pathway follows around the lake edge and offers panoramic views of the surrounding agricultural landscape and wetlands.
