The coast of Connemara has many beautiful beaches. The most famous of these is the coral strand in Carraroe, otherwise known as Trá an Doilín. This is a mere two-mile walk from the center of the village and should not be missed. For those who prefer soft sandy beaches many can be found in Carraroe and the surrounding area.
The Aran Islands
A trip to Connemara would not be complete without a trip to one of the three Aran Islands. There are two means of transport to the islands, by ferry from the port in Rossaveal, only five miles from Carraroe Village, or by plane (which only takes eight minutes), from the airport in Inverin.
The Gorumna Islands
Much more accessible than the Aran Islands one can travel to these by car as they are connected to the main land via a series of bridges. The islands are beautiful, particularly in the summer when the weather is fine.
There is an abundance of fishing opportunities in the West of Ireland with the countryside crisscrossed by streams, rivers and lakes. There are fishing clubs, schools and guides available in the area with licenses for Coarse and Game fishing starting from as little as €12.00 and absolutely free should you decide to fish off the rugged Atlantic Coastline.
