Williamstown Harbour lies on the West shores
of Lough Derg. It is not really large enough to be a town but is a
substantial village and is situated half way between Dunmore and
Ballymore in North Galway. Few other places will boast of such a
strange beginning because it was founded in the last century by
William McDermott, a local landlord, just to spite a rival who tried
to establish another town close by! All is quiet in Williamstown now,
as the era of the landlord is long over, and the other town failed to
Comments and additional material on the bars in this area are always welcome.
I can be contacted on Neil MacPherson.
