Loughrea, "The town of the grey lake", is one of Galway East's medieval towns and is situated on the Main N6 Galway-Dublin road. The clear waters of its lake provide excellent Trout angling and the lake has been awarded the Blue Flag environmental award. Loughrea also has the only medieval town moat still functioning in Ireland, and the ruins of the Carmelite Abbey are another medieval feature. St Brendan's Cathedral is a showcase for the Celtic Revival arts and crafts movement, and is a main attraction in the town.
