Loughareema is a unique lake in northern Ireland. Located on the coast road, just a few miles from the seaside town of Ballycastle, the lake conveniently vanishes from time to time. The water does disappear and reappear within hours. For this reason, the lake is known as the Vanishing Lake.
However, the lake vanishes once the blockage is cleared. The lake drains rapidly underground and a passerby who is not aware of the lake and its disappearing act would never even know it existed in the first place. The Loughareema lake can vanish within just few hours of time. This phenomenon has made the Vanishing Lake one of the unique lakes in the world.
