  • Property Details

    The Black Islands on Lough Ree are a unique archipelago of seven low-lying sheltered islands in the parish of Newtowncashel Co. Longford with a total area of 23.57 hectares.

    The largest is the Kings Island (8 hectares), and was the only inhabited island consisting of three farm cottages, two of which are still intact, the other islands include Nut Island, Sand Island, Long Island, Horse Island, Red Island and Girls Island, plus two smaller islands.

    The Kings Island is also renowned for Wormwood, this wild growing shrub has a very distinct aroma and was used for medicinal purposes in earlier years.

    The Black Islands are located on the western side of Lough Ree which is one of the lakes on the River Shannon and known as Mid Shannon. Lough Ree is 32 km long and lays claim to the geographical centre of Ireland.

    The islands are accessed via boat from two harbours nearby, the closest is Portanure to the east side near Newtowncashel and on the western side you have Carrownure harbour/slipway.

    This is an idyllic location with a fascinating heritage and is an area packed with activities. For the outdoor enthusiast, this area is wonderful for trout fishing and has abundant wildlife. Excellent fishing especially in May with the May fly, boating and all water activities are available.

    All of these attributes make the Black Islands a truly rare and magical offering.
