Portumna Castle was originally built in 1620, and is considered to be of major architectural importance as it represented a transition between vertical tower houses and later manor houses. The Castle is open to the public.
The forest park in Portumna covers some 1500 acres, and is home to an abundance of flora and fauna, including red deer, pine martens and otters. There is also an interesting nature trail, and the ruins of and old Dominican priory can be found here.
Angling on Lough Derg requires local club membership, available at the local tackle shop. There are some good bays around the town, and good bream and rudd fishing in the Shannon. Pike is also available, the best months are March to May, and October.
