Glenade Lake, meaning “lake of the glen of jealousy”, is a freshwater lake situated in north County Leitrim.

The lake is fed by a number of streams and drains into the Bonet River.

It is home to perch, pike and the endangered European eel and white-clawed crayfish, among other endangered species.

In 1997, Glenade Lake was designated as a Special Area of Conservation.

A local legend has it that a monster called the Dobharchu, an otter-like beast lived in the lake and is said to have killed a young woman called Grace Connolly there in 1722.
