If you’ve never been to Portmore Lough before, you’ll be amazed by this hidden gem nestled in the countryside just eight miles from Moira.

The RSPB NI nature reserve boasts all sorts of wonderful wildlife at this time of year, including common terns that have travelled all the way from Africa. This haven for nature is also home to a herd of hardy konik ponies, which munch the ground into the perfect condition for all sorts of wildlife, and are a firm favourite with visitors.

In August, the reserve is buzzing with butterflies and bees, dragonflies and damselflies and stunning plants like purple loosestrife and maybe even the rare Irish Lady’s Tresses orchid.

Spaces are strictly limited for this event, so early booking is recommended.
Please bring outdoor clothing and footwear and note that no camera equipment is provided – DSLR or bridge cameras required.
This event is not suitable for U16s.
