Rent a holiday home in Connemara and experience wild west Ireland
The County of Connemara was once the territory of the Irish tribe Conmacne Mara and is traditionally delineated as the area west of Galway's Corrib Lough, the second largest lake in Ireland. Connemara South, a picturesque land of hills, lakes and bogland is divided from the higher Connemara North by the Twelve Bens, a dozen impressive mountain peaks with trails perennially enjoyed by hikers and climbers. Holiday rentals near the fishing villages and beaches which characterise Connemara's three coasts draw sightseers, sport fishermen, walkers and sailing enthusiasts. Thanks to the Gulf Stream Connemara it enjoys mild weather patterns, with holiday rentals available year round.
Book a holiday home in Connemara
Holiday houses and holiday apartments are found in coastal villages, on rocky headlands or in welcoming towns such as Clifden. Connemara's largest urban area and home to the popular Connemara Pony Show, Clifden is also known for the megalithic tombs found nearby. In Gaelic speaking Connemara visitors enjoy the Irish ambiance whether their choice of holiday rentals is a cottage by the sea or a holiday apartment. Visitors can also rent island holiday homes and holiday apartments. The famed Aran Islands, long the favoured destination of Irish intellectuals, culture seekers and nature lovers, lie a short ferry ride from the mainland village of Cleggan.
Connemara's wealth of islands
Connemara's many islands abound in history and no Connemara holiday rental is ever far from one of these historic sites. One of many fascinating island sites, Inishbofin, the Island of the White Cow, has the remains of a 13th century church as well as the notorious Cromwell's Barracks, a 17th century prison for Irish priests. The island also features the castle of Grainne O'Malley, an Irish chieftain and 'pirate queen' who petitioned Elizabeth I for clemency toward Irish prisoners. At the edge of the West of Ireland, Connemara is a place where holiday houses make holiday homes. A land of history and breathtaking vistas, Connemara offers its hallmark serenity to all who visit the region.
