I reviewed these notes in August 2022. I have been unable to contact the Millbay Inn (number unidentified) and, although The club at Magheramourne has a website and FB page they don't seem to have much sailing activity

I reviewed these notes in July 2021. I visited this lough a few years ago and there is really not much laid on here for cruising yachts.
Update Spring 2019

These notes were reviewed in May 2019. For such a large expanse of water there seems to be very little in the way of provisions for cruising yachts and not much information either. We believe the Magheramorne "Boat Club" may still be in existence but we are not sure!!
