Oscar Wilde described Connemara as ‘a savage beauty’ and well, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Stretching along the west coast of County Galway, Connemara’s rugged and rebellious landscape holds an enduring mystical quality. The crumbling coastline, rolling hills and curiously spongy bogs are the backdrop to some of our strongest myths and legends. Connemara’s confines are like a vault, keeping our island’s heritage, folklore and culture safe against the march of time. After all, this is one of the most thriving Gaeltacht areas in Ireland. It flourishes between looming airy peaks, sandy shores meeting Atlantic froth, and clear night skies of glittering stars.
Didn’t Wilde recommend looking at the stars too?
