We travelled the amazing Wild Atlantic Way (or part of it) and stopped off at the Visitor Centre En Route. This is a great stop off - our 6 year old loved the play centre and parking/entry is free.

Stumbled across this place. Ended up climbing Diamond Hill. The views are unbelievable. Its an easy-medium climb- with steps and paths the entire way to the top. Takes about 3 hrs in total to complete. Worth the effort for the views

This area is unique, mainly of bog plains with pockets of dense forest. The area is rocky, the ground outside the forest pockets is covered with a low growing lichen type vegetation which is pale gold in colour and this includes the mountains which rear up gold against the blue sky. When cloudy, they disappear in wreaths of mist. There... More

We visited Connemara National Park through the Galway Tours Co and were just thrilled by the day trip! A great value for all of the stops and our driver was very knowledgeable about the area and history.

Great day out travelling between quaint towns, enjoyed mussels in Killary Fjord and the gardens at Kylemore Castle to sheep on side of road. Get out in car and enjoy beautiful landscape mountains and valleys. Didn't see any goblins though!!!
