The North West Ireland region
The West of Ireland conjures up many images; thatched, whitewashed cottages, a flock of sheep on a narrow road, an emerald green field with a stone wall, or the Atlantic waves crashing into towering cliffs and rocky shores.
Known as the gateway to Connemara, the picturesque village of Cong lies between the shores of Lough Corrib and Lough Mask in beautiful County Mayo. Best known for being the setting of the film, 'The Quiet Man', this quaint little settlement offers special tours and an abundance of memorabilia are available to commemorate the motion picture. Visitors can explore the remains of the majestic Cong Abbey, founded in the twelfth century by Turlogh O'Connor - King of Connaught and the High King of Ireland – and the Market Cross which celebrates two former abbots of the Monastery. Described as the most dramatic castle in Ireland, nearby Ashford Castle offers not only an opportunity to enjoy fine dining amid pristine period décor, but also an 18 hole golf course.
