Oughterard Heritage Walk

After a pub lunch, we followed the town heritage walk. It was very difficult to find information on this, and some of the navigation was hard work for someone who doesn’t know the town, but well worth it.

First up was ‘The Shrubbery’, a small patch of land by the river, with a little bridge leading to a tiny island.

Further up, the route crosses the river with a bridge by some waterfalls.

At certain times of the year, returning Salmon leap up the falls.

The walk goes under a railway bridge for the abandoned Galway to Clifden narrow gauge railway.

This is the site of the town workhouse burial ground.

Then back to town for a cup of tea. Two minutes after we got to the café, the heavens opened for the next shower!
