Connemara trip


Oscar Wilde described Connemara as a savage beauty and they say when you visit Connemara you “experience the real beauty of Ireland”. It’s located in the north west corner of County Galway and is an area of desolate beauty, incredible scenery and some interesting attractions, which combine to make Connemara a really beautiful place and a place close to the hearts of Irish people and visitors alike.

The distinct region of Connemara can be found in the north west corner of County Galway. Connemara is considered to be the land west of Lough Corrib. On the north side of Connemara is Killary harbour, the south side Galway Bay and the west side the Atlantic Ocean.

Anyone who's ever visited the wild and rural Connemara can attest to its unique beauty

Having featured in cherished Irish films such as The Field and The Quiet Man, by looking at the scenery to be found in every inch of the area its easy to see how it inspired writers and filmmakers alike.
