Killary Harbour (June 2010)

Killary Harbour is undoubtedly one of Irelands best know beauty spots. The harbour also know as Killary fjord forms a partial border between counties Galway and Mayo and stretches for 16km to and slightly beyond the beautiful village of Leenaun. Last Sunday (June 6th) I took a drive to Leenaun with the intention of getting an aerial looking photograph of the fjord. I parked about 0.5 miles outside the village alongside the road to Kylemore and climbed an unnamed mountain overlooking to harbour the right of the Laghtyfahaghaun river. It was a steep but relatively short ascent along somewhat rough terrain (about 500m). Spectacular would be a mild word in describing the views from the summit. In glorious summer sunshine the full length of the harbour (16km) was clearly visible right out past Mweelrea mountains where it joins the Atlantic ocean
