This is Killary Harbour, the only fjord in Ireland, in County Galway. The dramatic fjord is 16km long and reaches depths of almost 150 feet and is a prime location for the growing of mussels. The pretty village of Leenane perches on its edge, the locale for the movie “The Field” starring Richard Harris. As you can see, sheep also perch along its edges! And they have the right of way!
