              Enjoy the breathtaking views on the road from Maams Cross through Lough Inagh Valley and on to Kylemore.
              The Connemara Park is more than 2000 ha of bog land, mountains, rivers lakes and streams.

              The visitor centre is located just outside Letterfrack. The park is open all year round and is popular with walkers and climbers. The village of Recess is a good stopping point before you turn right and head into the Twelve Tins mountains and Lough Inagh valley. The Connemara Loop, a circular route through some of the most scenic areas, starts at Maam Cross. The road distance is about 90Km, though the driving time due to stop offs, rests, and perhaps a sing song in a Connemara pub, may take some time The roads through Connemara are generally small and narrow. The area hosts many bus tours, so better to avoid the tours and stay ahead or wait till they have well passed.

              The Inagh Valley opens out into the less rugged Kylemore valley. A stop in the abbey is a must, so don't forget to take the left turn when you reach the main road.
              Inagh Valley is one of the most photographed areas of Connemara on a fine day. The road winds along the side of Derry Clare Lake and Lough Inagh, bound on the West by the Twelve Pins and on the right by the mighty MaumTurk mountains.

              The Inagh Valley opens out into the less rugged Kylemore valley. A stop in the abbey a must.
              From Maams Cross you can select which direction to take - go south for a loop around Galway Bay, west for one of the scenic short loop drives and north to Maam Village and upper Lough Corrib
