The Gort River is unusual in that the river disappears and reappears several times before it goes underground for the last time, offering an excellent example of a subterranean river. 

Just south west of Lough Cutra, the river is swallowed up to the underground at what’s called the Devil’s Punchbowl. The river finally emerges in Galway Bay, at Kinvara.
