Lough Allen Drumshanbo


Drumshanbo and the area around Lough Allen are emerging as a foodie lovers’ haven with fabulous places to eat and a hinterland blessed with bakers and organic farming – heaven! Drumshanbo is home to Ireland’s first floating boardwalk opened at Acres Lake.

Of course, it is best known for The Food Hub – imagine baking and boxty, chef-made ready meals, organic kefir, and of course, Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin all under one roof. Did you know Drumshanbo has been at the heart of food production since 1935? Some of you may remember Bo Peep jams from your childhood.. Today, as a community-owned social enterprise The Food Hub provides employment to over 140 people and is home to the remarkable The Shed Distillery and The Curious Journey Distillery Tour, which has to be on your itinerary of the area.
