What to do
Attractions, distractions and more ... Oh how to spend your time in Connemara. Hill walking through the Twelve Bens, trekking in the national park, beach strolls hand in hand along the waters edge on the numerous sandy beaches, Kylemore Abbey and gardens, a day trip to Inishbofin Island, cycle the rural byways, evening sessions in the local pubs, seafood and organic mountain lamb for dinner, creamy guinness for an alternate dinner, quiet chats or boisterous debate at the bar counters, rest, relaxation and romance, swimming in the wild atlantic, fishing on the many loughs, boat trips around the bay ... how much time do you have ?!
