Site Details

Oxford Island is actually a peninsula situated in the south east corner of Lough Neagh, our largest freshwater lake. It is managed by Craigavon Borough Council’s Conservation Service to protect and enhance its habitats and encourage visitor use and awareness. Its mosaic of reedbeds, woodland, wildflower meadows and wildlife ponds make this one of Northern Ireland’s most spectacular National Nature Reserves and a wonderful place to view many aspects of our wildlife at close hand, no matter what the season!
