Being surrounded on three sides by the Atlantic Ocean, the shoreline of Connemara embraces some of the most beautiful clean, unpolluted beaches, both sand and coral, quiet undiscovered walkways, craggy rocks and challenging cliffs. One of its most notable features is the abundance of off-shore islands, many now uninhabited, but some are accessible daily for trips. They provide a safe haven for many forms of wildlife, puffins, seals and migratory birds.
Connemara is a place to unwind, de-stress, relax, and breathe in the fresh, clean air.
