Connemara

is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt places in Ireland. Roughly bordered by Killary Harbour in the north and Roundstone in the south it features fascinating mountains, lakes, bogs as well as golden beaches. You can reach all sights on easy half-day or day trips from the cottage. Killary Harbour extends 16 kms inland and with the mountains rising steeply on either side provides what is probably the best scenery in Ireland. Walkers have access to Mweelrea, Sheefry, Partry and Maumturk Mountains.

Leenane
The village of Leenane, snugly situated at the head of Killary Harbour, is often aptly described as the 'Gateway to Connemara'. The roads from Maam, Clifden, and Westport meet at this point. Leenane with its surrounds is a haven for geologists due to a great variety of sedimentary, volcanic and metamorphic rocks. Well known beauty spots include Aasleagh Falls and Doolough Valley, scene of the tragic famine walk. A film adaptation of John B. Keane's famous play "The Field", directed by Jim Sherdian, was made in Leenane in 1989. Well-known stars taking part included the late Richard Harris, John Hurt and Tom Berrenger. Visitors can visit many of the locations used as sets in the film. Leenane has a small shop, cafés and restaurants.
