The River Erriff (Abhainn na hOirimhe) is a river in Ireland, flowing through County Mayo. A spate river, it is characterised by lively streams and deep fish-holding pools. Near the mouth of the river a spectacular wallfall called Aasleagh Falls (Eas Liath) is situated.
The River Erriff forms from the union of the Owenree River and Owenmore River in Glennacally. It flows west-southwest parallel to the N59, passing under Aasleagh Bridge and entering Killary Harbour.
