Connemara and the surrounding area is a rugged landscape of brooding hills and moors, inlets to the wild coast and ever-changing weather patterns. Ashford Castle is worth visiting the region for alone, but the beautifully barren hills laced with stone walls are also perfect for hiking or cycling. Oscar Wilde was correct when he described Connemara as a 'savage beauty' with its dark lakes and raw untamed hills sweeping into white sandy beaches.
A brilliant way to see the landscape is with an experienced fisherman in a seashore foraging experience. This highly valued member of the Coastguard not only leads rescue operations on life-boats, but knows all about the wildlife of the area. Whilst foraging, hear about tales and stories of Connemara from a true local.
