Connemara is a rural are in County Galway and is one of the last remaining strongholds of the Irish language. This area is a must see for nature enthusiasts and lovers of scenic beauty as it is one of the most beautiful unspoilt landscapes in the western world.
This Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) area is inhabited by native speakers but this shouldn’t deter any visitors as English is widely understood, having a phrase or two in Irish will be much appreciated by the locals but one can get by in Connemara without.
Connemara’s rugged landscape which boasts bog lands, mountains, golden beaches, and sprawling plains is home to the West’s top tourist attraction in Kylemore Abbey. Home to Ireland’s ‘most romantic castle’, it is a perfect day out for the family as there is something for everyone. The history behind this majestic location is of great interest while non-history nuts can enjoy the woodland trails, kids play area, and ample shopping in the craft shop.
