A land of ever-shifting light and incredible sunsets, of mountains blanketed by purple heather, pristine white-sand beaches, the azure and turquoise waters of the Atlantic lapping the shallow coves and bays of her rugged coastline—Connemara attracts poets and painters, film crews, adventurers, and those seeking a respite from the cares and worries of modern life.
The villages in Connemara retain a sense of true Irish hospitality, with warm welcomes for visitors—an authentic source for local news and helpful suggestions of things to see & do. Letterfrack stands at the entrance to the Connemara National Park, home of the Twelve Bens and Diamond Hill, with its spectacular views over the Renvyle Peninsula, Inishbofin, Inishturk, and Clare Islands, as well as Kylemore Abbey.
The Bards Den in Letterfrack offers a perfect base for exploring the wild and unspoilt beauty of the Connemara land and seascapes. An affordable hostel, award-winning restaurant, and lively traditional bar all under the one roof.
