Visit Connemara 

Connemara is located in County Galway, and is blessed with unique and breath-taking scenery. On one side you have the Wild Atlantic Ocean and on the other the majestic mountain ranges of the Twelve Bens and Maumturk. It has captived tourists and Hollywood alike for generations, so we say go and experience it yourself. It truly is like no other. Don’t miss the Sky Road, one of Ireland’s most impressively scenic drives.
