From the rugged Twelve Ben mountain range in the north through lake-rich Roundstone-Bog to the golden beaches reaching out into the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll know you are in Connemara by the light that constantly changes the mood and tone of the country. Connemara has long been regarded as the real emerald of Ireland. This natural terrain and unspoiled environment offers the visitor a wonderland of sights, experiences, adventure and activities.

Only half an hours drive from the Ard Ri House Hotel, through Ballinrobe, into Cong, you are at the gateway to Connemara. A wonderful daytrip, breathtaking sceneries and lunch stops in local pubs serving freshly caught fish and mussels is a must.
