Connemara,  land of stunning beauty and contrasts, geographically stretching from the mountain ranges of the Twelve Bens and Maamturks across natural and unspoilt terrain to the coastal cliffs, rocky promontories and islands of the wild Atlantic Ocean. Haven of poets, artists, writers and photographers who come to visit, linger and return home captivated by the incredible beauty, ever changing light, colours and hues.

The people of Connemara extend a friendliness and hospitality to all visitors which is second to none and visitors return time and time again to capture the essence of this special and sacred place.  Memorable, wild and splendid in all its seasons, it captures the imagination of all who are privileged to live, visit or journey through its hidden valleys and waterways.
