Getting Oriented

With the most westerly seaboard in Europe, this region remains a place apart—the most Irish part of Ireland. While just to the west and north of hip Galway City, this area is famed for its wild and rural character. Connemara sits in the northwest corner of County Galway. County Mayo is Ireland's third-largest county, with coast on three of its four sides, and the River Moy and the huge expanse of Lough Conn and Lough Cullin on the fourth. Bright lights are to be found in Clifden and Westport, both lively small towns of great charm.
