County Galway Off The Beaten Path: 16 reviews and 19 photos

  Leckavrea Mountain & the Connemara
by globetrott

Have a look on your map and you will see that there are only a very few streets going through CONNEMARA - take all of them, and you will see great landscapes from different angels everywhere.
This place, shown on my picture is next to Maam Cross and the "Quiet Man" - cottage and it is one of these places, that is shown at almost each guidebook about the area around Galway.
Take Take N59 and about 2km past Maam Cross you will see a big parking and this island with Leckavrea Mountain in the background.
