Lough Corrib is the largest lake in the Republic of Ireland and second largest in the island of Ireland after Lough Neagh. 

The lake holds stock of mainly trout and salmon fish. A recent study from the creator of charts of the lake outlined there are 1,327 islands on the lake even though locals have always reputed that there are 365 islands. 

Lastly, the first canal in Ireland was cut in the 12th century, Friar’s Cut, and allowed boats to pass from Lough Corrib to the sea at Galway.
