River Corrib



"The River Corrib . . . in the west of Ireland flows from Lough Corrib through Galway to Galway Bay. The river is among the shortest in Europe, with only a length of six kilometres from the lough to the Atlantic. It is popular with local whitewater kayakers as well as several rowing clubs and pleasure craft. The depth of this river reaches up to 94 feet" (Wikipedia).

  3. Quite a wide river for only being 6 km long. A nice green reflection. I wonder if there are any fish.

    1. Oh my goodness! Are there fish? There's a section of the river known as the "Galway fishery". In fact, when I was there, salmon were in particular abundance.

  5. Short but deep RR, interesting to read in above comments that there was an abundance of salmon, so I'm guessing fishing can be added to the list of activities on river Corrib!

  7. So serene and peaceful! I'd love to kayak there. And you probably don't have any alligators to contend with! 94 feet deep? Yikes!
