FISHERIES TOWER MUSEUM

0
Rated 0 out of 5

The Fishery Watchtower is one of Galway City’s most historic landmarks. Built in 1852/53 by the Ashworth Brothers, the building is the only one of its kind in Ireland and was originally designed as a draft netting station. Draft netting involved the process of netting fish using a row-boat and a long net secured at one end to the shore.

The building also served as a look-out tower for fishery personnel to monitor fish stocks as well as illegal fishing activity along the river! The Fishery Watchtower Museum, one of Galway’s smallest museums, houses a wonderful collection of fishery memorabilia and vintage photographs.
