Discover the country of the “Quiet Man" and "The Purple Taxi”, Connemara today. This stunning region of Ireland is full of contrast, granite Mountains populated only by sheep with hundreds of lakes forming a fisherman’s paradise. Its stone walls, small farms, thatched cottages in isolated splendour with its heather covered hills creates an unforgettable scene for all its visitors.
