The Connemara area includes an abbey, mountains, loughs and about 16 small towns (including Leenane, which I told you about yesterday). In fact, Leenane is a good place to start your Connemara trip, just head west.
About 18 minutes from Leenane, you will find Kylemore Abbey, an old castle which later became a Benedictine monestary.
Or, you can just take a bunch of pictures outside for free.
Driving about 10 minutes west of Kylemore Abbey will bring you to the Connemara National Park.
The park is just one place where you can see the gorgeous mountains in Connemara. You can also see bogs, grasslands, and wildlife.
We hiked the Lower Diamond Hill Walk, but Frank says he has plans to hike the Upper Diamond Hill Walk when we travel back to Ireland later this month.
This is a really fancy way of saying lake in Ireland.
This town is just about as small as Leenane, but the main allure for Clifden is that it is on the Atlantic Ocean.
After grabbing a pint (or 12), it was time for us to continue our road trip, back to Leenane, and then soon, out of the Connemara altogether.
