Connemara Trail
Connemara/Galway Ireland

In the very heart of a distinctive countryside, where the dark mountains meet the blue sea and green and verdant land surrounds pretty lakes, you will find one of Ireland's most unusual regions: the Connemara! 

The Connemara is a wild and barren region west of the city of Galway. It is a stunning patchwork of bogs, lonely valleys, pale grey mountains and small lakes that shimmer when the sun shines. It is a land both wild and tame, a vast region where you will meet a very special man, Willie Leahy, who will be your guide during the week of trekking through the Gaelic West.
This lovely Irish ride will introduce the enthusiastic horseback rider and traveler to the Gaelic cultural richness of the Connemara countryside! Ride past small thatched cottages and villages built around stately manors or castle ruins. Journey through the wild bog lands and rocky mountainside of the region, an area renowned for its fantastic landscapes that change with every passing cloud or ray of sunlight. Rivers, lakes, mountains and the coastal sea provide an unspoiled and beautiful contrast to the russet bog lands. For novice and experienced riders alike, Willie provides a suitable horse for everyone and leads you on to a most fulfilling discovery of the Connemara Trail and its Irish delights!
