A Wednesday day trip through the wilds of Connemara.
The hour and half drive from Galway City takes you deep into the wilderness with the Maumturk mountains & 12 Bens accompanying you for the journey, as well as countless sheep! After a brief stop in Oughterard I continued on and the weather picked up as we got into Leenane.
As you enter Leenane, Killary harbour becomes visible and the stunning landscape hits you, and this impact has not faded on repeat visits. The drive around (Republic of Ireland’s only) fjord gives you a 360 degree view of the spectacle and as you climb in altitude so too do the sheep!
By the lake in Oughterard.
