    Walking ---Lough Inagh

    We love heading out to Connemara in the Autumn, strolling along the lakes and fjords and finding ourselves so often awestruck by the changing light as day passes into evening..

    Walled Garden ---Kylemore Gardens

    We visited Kylemore in early summer, the walled garden is such a contrast with the general area, which is generally bog and peat, with a scattering of sheep. Yet this garden made by the family years ago, seems like an oasis in the middle of watery bogs. The vegetables were thriving and looked fit for any decent restaurant table..

    Ceoil n Craic ---Clifden

    Staying out in Connemara or planning a visit to the West of Ireland. If you like to listen to some music while you sip a pint hen there are a few pubs in Clifden which you will like as they generally have musicians at weekends during the summer months..

    Hill Walking ---

    A good walk for the not so experienced walker is up Diamond Hill in Letterfrack. A boardwalk starts at the National Park Visitor centre and works its way up towards Diamond Hill. There are various shorter walks as well as the longer one that goes right up to the summit..

    Cycling ---Roundstone

    You can hire bikes in Clifden and do one of the circular routes - such as the Renvyle or Sky loop though my favourite was the Roundstone loop. We went out along the coast, through Roundstone and back via the bog road. The views of the Twelve Pins was stunning..
