South Tipperary County Council is seeking an architect for an interpretation centre and visitor experience overlooking Lough Derg – Ireland’s second largest lake
The winning team will complete a feasibility study for a new ecologically-sensitive structure at ‘The Lookout’ panoramic viewpoint on the R494.
The new facility will be expected to enhance visitors’ ‘experience of discovery’ at the popular scenic attraction.
Improved linkages to existing amenity facilities at nearby Castlelough – which include information panels, a play area and toilets – will also be required.
Known as the ‘loch of the red eye’, Lough Derg is the largest lake in the Shannon River Basin and the second largest water body in the country.
The lake carried freight during the nineteenth century and is now a popular fishing and water sports destination.
The deadline for requests to participate is 4pm on 27 March.
