We have a number of Lakes in Castlegar, County Galway.

A few Turloughs are about also; namely Killtulla, Menlo and Pollkeen.

The three Lakes at Coolough, are a fine example of under - promotion. They're within three miles of a Medieval City, contain both Pike and Perch, and are normally accessible by a Lake Boat. The scenery equals anywhere else: a Fisherman wants Fish, limited fuss and maybe a Pint to articulate his or her experience.

To date, the local Hotels, etc., tend to nudge a visitor up towards the Lake of the Corrib; an expanse of water.

Perhaps not all want the succulent Salmon and Trout, but the Pike and the Perch from the Lakes in Coolough.
