The Killary Fjord, Ireland's only fjord, winds its way 9 miles inland from its mouth at Inis Barna (island of the gap) to the village of Leenane, a rural hamlet made famous from ‘The Quiet Man' film. One side of this watery inlet is entirely shielded by Mweelrea (rising 814 metres above sea level), the region's highest mountain. Sheltered entirely as it is, The Killary Fjord offers diving throughout the year. At its mouth, Inis Barna is a dive site with something for everyone. The north-eastern side of the island homes a number of conger eels, which can be hand-fed tinned sardines or mackerel. Divers looking for some depth can achieve up to 45 metres; making Inis Barna a popular site for technical divers looking to keep their skills sharp during the winter months.
