Places to See
Cois Fharraige (Connemara South) stretches along Galway Bay from the Southern mouth of the Connemara Gaeltacht to Ros a Mhíl village and port. This 20 mile stretch is unique in many ways.
From the stunning views across the Bay to County Clare, to the small rivers dissecting the main road flowing from sunken lakes in the bog. At Furbo onwards the Aran Islands are visible while Connemara stone walls map the fields passed on by generations.
