Lough Money is a 1km long lough a few miles east of Downpatrick. The water here tends to be amongst the clearest found in any lough.
The lough is poular with anglers. When there are a lot of anglers about it may be best to restrict your swimming to the less-fished northern end. There is a path along the western shore extending the full length of the lough.
From Downpatrick take the Ballyhornan Road. After going through Ballyalton turn left along Ballyculter Road, signposted Lough Money. There is a car park.
