Ballynahinch Castle Hotel Connemara, Co. Galway, Ireland


Also known as the Emerald Isle, this small, republic in northwestern Europe has a beautiful green countryside. Take pleasure in witnessing rolling farmlands, which are mainly pasture that cover much of the central part of the country, and mountains that rise near the coasts.


Situated at the very edge of Europe, on the west coast is the real emerald of Ireland. Connemara is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt places you could set your eyes on. From the rugged Twelve Bens mountain range in the north through lake-rich Roundstone Bog to the golden beaches reaching out into the Atlantic Ocean, Connemara will enchant you with its light that constantly changes landscape’s mood and tone.


On the west coast of Ireland, surrounded by the rugged beauty of Connemara and the Twelve Bens mountain range.
