"Oughterard, Co Galway." Oughterard by pfsmalo

This was an ideal place to stop being just 27 kms to Galway, as shopping on the Saturday called. A short drive takes you to the banks of Lough Corrib, the largest of the lakes of the Republic covering some 165 sq kms. Said to have 365 islands, one for every day of the year. Just out of town, on the road from Clifden is the bridge made famous by John Wayne in the "The Quiet Man". Further towards Galway is Aughnanure castle built around 1500.

    I like the looks of that old castle. Not as romanticized and phony looking as a lot of the ones you see over here.

      Yes it was a good visit. This one we visited, but as you say, some of them are so overblown, I wouldn't give them my money.
