Clonbur is located between Lough Corrib and Lough Mask both of which are renowned top class angling lakes.

These fresh water lakes provide excellent swimming amenities, and the opportunities to visit many of their islands.

For those seeking outdoor pursuits the nearby Petersburg Outdoor Centre offers windsurfing, canoeing, pot-holing, abseiling and also local nature trails, while a short drive away (30 mins) Delphi Adventure Centre/ Lodge Spa offers a range of outdoor sports including sea-kayaking, surfing, diving, mountain biking, rock-climbing and a range of other activities.
