Connemara National Park
Connemara National Park is situated in the West of Ireland in County Galway (1 hour away from Galway City) and covers nearly 3,000 hectares of rugged mountains, bogs, heaths, grasslands and woodlands. Some of the Park’s mountains, namely Benbaun, Bencullagh, Benbrack and Muckanaght, are part of the famous Twelve Bens or Beanna Beola range. Connemara National Park was established and opened to the public in 1980. The fauna and flora of the park is simply amazing: you’ll ba able to find the famous Connemara ponies, red deer and an enormous variety of birdlife. Other remnants of times past include ruined houses, an ice house, ancient walls and Tobar Mweelin.
