Connemara, Galway & Mayo

Connemara is perfect cycling country, where roads go round hills rather than over them.The Connemara Mountain wilderness region is one of the ancient regions of old Ireland.

The scenery changes from dramatic mountain ranges and fjords to sweeping open bogland and rocky coastline.
