Glencullin

Beautiful Glencullin

Glencullin Lough is the furthest inland Lough in the Delphi Valley and truly captivates all the features and emotions of a remote West of Ireland landscape. It is not a big lake, approximately 1 sq kilometre and is fed by numerous streams which tumble down from the Mweelrea Mountains to the west.

Glencullin has within it two small islands, one natural, that thankfully being too small to have ever been grazed by sheep or cattle, is a living collection of wild flowers, heathers and ferns that are true natives of this region. The second island is a Crannog, an ancient defensive settlement, that once would have had a few dwellings built on its platform of stones, with no obvious link to the shore. This is now a protected archaeological site.

Glencullin is a very beautiful lake to go fishing on, or maybe take out a row boat for a few hours to unwind and enjoy a picnic in a beautiful and romantic location.
