The riverside town of Ballinasloe is a major gateway to the west. Located to the very east of County Galway on the N6, the town is a popular base among visitors wishing to tour the area while still enjoying all the attractions that Balllinasloe has to offer. It is a large and busy town, renowned for industry and commerce, but it also caters for a wide range of countryside pursuits, from shooting to golf. The River Suck - a tributary of the Shannon - provides for many leisure activities, including boating, and a colourful marina has recently been completed. The scenic Suck, which is deep and slow- flowing, is also well known as a great place for coarse angling, with bream especially numerous. However, Ballinasloe is most famous of all for equestrian events. In addition to its regular year-round activities such as horse and pony riding and show-jumping, Ballinasloe hosts an annual October Fair, said to be one of the oldest horse fairs in Europe. The festival, which lasts for more than a week, includes music, crafts and children's entertainment as well as equestrian events. Meanwhile, the Dartfield Horse Museum and Heritage Centre is situated just outside Ballinasloe, at Kilrickle, and is well worth a visit.
