A Rugged Beauty on the West Coast of Ireland

Famed for it’s wild natural beauty, Connemara is a very popular holiday region on the west coast of Ireland.
The sea and the mountains are both inescapable with no part of Connemara being far from either. The combination of the mountains, the coastline and the boglands provide visitors to the area with an abundance of places to see and things to do. Visitors are often in awe of the curious way that the light interacts with the landscape and this, along with the Atlantic maratime climate ensures that no scene ever remains the same.
Some highlights of this hugely popular holiday region include Kylemore Abbey, Connemara National Park, Connemara’s Wild Atlantic Way, its blanket bogs, the Twelve Bens (Beanna Beola) mountain range, the traditional sailing boats, Connemara ponies, to name just a few. Connemara’s natural boundaries have helped to preserve many Irish traditions including traditional Irish music, song and dance which has survived and thrived here. The Irish language (Gaeilge) is still spoken daily in large parts of the area and Connemara has one of the last pockets of native Irish speakers in Ireland. There are many pilgrimages, festivals and events throughout the year in Connemara to celebrate what’s culturally unique to the area. Come to Connemara to sample the incomparable beauty!
