Lady’s Island Lake


Lady’s Island Lake (Irish: Loch Tóchair) is a windswept brackish lake in south County Wexford, Ireland.

The unspoilt lake offers stunning views and a powerful atmosphere, which makes it an ideal filming location for films with important lake scenes. The southern banks are sandy beaches, while on the northern side, there’s the Lady’s Island (technically a peninsula) which has reedy and grassy banks. On the peninsula, there’s a cemetery, a castle, and a popular pilgrimage site.

The windswept lake is a back-barrier seepage lagoon, one of only two in Ireland. This means that the lake is neither fresh nor salt water but somewhere in between. As such, the lake has distinct flora and fauna. Swans and terns can often be seen.
