If you go down the Pier road in Oughterard, at some point on your left side there is a little bridge and a path. Do not hesitate and turn to the left, follow that path and go to the river. Enjoy the shimmering water moving slowly towards the lake. Enjoy the colourful boats tied up along the banks of the Owenriff river and simply let your worries go. Breathe in that fresh summer air and forget that town is just 10 minutes walk from where you stand. This is what I really love about Oughterard, in a few minutes you can be in the countryside and at the same time, you are practically in town. Enjoy the Owenriff walk.
