Connemara has always been considered the emerald gem stone of Ireland. This natural topography with it’s, in the words of Oscar Wilde, savage exquisiteness is a green wonderland of sights and escapade. Clothed in ever shifting colors and the widespread feature of the Twelve Bens mountain range, the area is an ideal mountaineering destination. The peaks cut the sky at a really judicious height of about 700 m so you don't need to be an experienced hiker to reach most of them in a single day. You will be satisfied with marvelous views of heather and lichen-wrapped hills and vast sterile passages of land.
