With two Bird Hides Sonairte is a wonderful place for photographing wildlife.
The Salt Marshes along the River Nanny are an EU designated Special Protection Area (SPA) under the Conservation of Birds directive.
These habitats are important breeding and feeding sites for many resident and migratory bird species.
We have detailed information on what plants and wildlife you can expect to find under the headings Wetland Biodiversity, Woodland Biodiversity and Grassland Biodiversity on our page Nature Trail & River Walk.
Our historic Gardens and buildings also provide a perfect backdrop for wedding photos.
In summer, flowers and fruit, bees, butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies will delight macro photographers.
