Portumna

Portumna is a market town in the south east of Galway. It lies on the border with Co Tipperary and is located to the west of the point where the River Shannon enters Lough Derg. On the south-western edge of the town lie Portumna Castle and Portumna forest park. Portumna is also a popular tourist destination for boaters, golfers and anglers. The town is at the junction of the River Shannon and Lough Derg, and there are a number of harbours - two of which are on the Portumna side of the river. These are Connacht Harbour, accessed via the river, which is beside Bridge Road, on the eastern side of the town, and Portumna (or 'New') Harbour which is on the northern shore of Lough Derg beside Castle Avenue, adjacent to the castle and the forest park on the southern edge of the town. In addition to trails within the forest park, Portumna is the southern trailhead of the Hymany Way which here forms part of the Beara-Breifne long distance walking and cycling trail between the Beara Peninsula in County Cork and Blacklion in County Cavan. Portumna holds two festivals each year, the Great Outdoors Festival in late June and the Shorelines Arts Festival in late September. Local amenities include a wide selection of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as a 18 hole golf club. The area is also well known for its GAA club while it also has a soccer club. There is also a primary school and secondary school.
