Lough Fee (Irish: Loch Fí)[1] is a freshwater lake in the west of Ireland. It is located in the Connemara area of County Galway.

Geography

Lough Fee measures about 3 km (1.9 mi) long and 0.5 km (0.3 mi) wide. It is located about 30 km (19 mi) northeast of Clifden and just south of Killary Harbour.[2]

Hydrology

The Tooreenacoona River enters Lough Fee at its southwestern shore. Lough Fee flows out to the northwest to Lough Muck, which in turn flows to the Atlantic Ocean via the Culfin River.[2]
