Accommodations in the area tend to the traditional; outside Westport there are few with indoor pools and gyms. Instead there are informal, friendly places where you will probably end up comparing notes with other travelers over a huge cooked breakfast. Add variety by alternating rural isolation with the lively towns. Both Clifden in Connemara and Westport in Mayo have lively pub scenes. Clifden
attracts a younger, mainly single, crowd, especially in July and August, so be prepared: the music might be rock rather than Irish.
