Mullaghglass is located in the serene Renvyle Peninsula, dominated by Tully mountain. Many little villages are scattered in this area: Letterfrack, the starting point to visit Connemara National Park and Tullycross with its typical thatched cottages, just to name a few. Nearby there are lovely beaches, such as Lettergesh and Glassilaun, where tourists and locals can take pleasant walks in an unspoilt scenery.
The Twelve Bens, or Twelve Pins are also known in Irish as Na Beanna Beola. This mountain range made of of sharp-peaked quartzite is located northeast of Roundstone. Frequent rainfall and steep-sided mountains produce an abundance of small trickles and streams which descend into wide-bottomed valleys below the Twelve Pins to join larger streams with riffles and pools. The highest point in the Twelve Bens is Benbaun at 729 metres.
Doon Hill Fort is located near Ballyconneely. The remains of this impressive cashel are not reachable because they lay in a private property; just beside the Fort rises the mass of Doon Hill, the basalt plug of an ancient volcano. Traces of the foundation of a Celtic ring fort, or Dún (from which the hill and the area are named) can be seen on its summit.
An aerial view of Dawros Bay, near Letterfrack. In the background it is possible seeing Tully mountain and the Twelve Bens just beside it. The sea waters deeply meander in every little cove and Connemara national Park is worth a visit. The main attraction of the park is the Diamond Hill, from which you can enjoy spectacular 360° degrees views all over the bay.
Camus Bay - the name refers to its peculiar shape which makes the tides coming and going through the narrow strait at Dun Manus and entering Camus bay at an angle. The little village of Camus is divided in Camus Íochtair (Lower) and Camus Uachtair (Upper). This picture was taken from the latter one.
