So much history. If only this little piece of stone could talk. The bridge near it is so pretty too.

A most beautiful setting by the river in Cong watching the trout jumping. What a lovely way to unwind for an hour or so.

Come out of The Abbey and you arrive here. It is a cute little house used by fishermen in the past. Its peaceful sitting on the bank. Nice opportunity to see the swans also.

The town of Cong is very charming and the fishing house is a unique little structure in the river. It makes for a nice stop when hiking in the woods and some great photos.

The Monk Fishing House is located in the village of Cong and is the remains of the Stone House the Monks constructed in the Cong River to fish when the weather was cold/wet. Good Photo opportunity.

This little cottage is set in such a serenely beautiful place. The sound of the river flowing made me want to camp out there the remainder of the day!

Walking onto this historic fishing platform was like walking into another world. If you are visiting Cong, make the short walk out!! It’s worth it!!
