The Connemara Heritage and History Centre lies on the main N59 road from Galway to Clifden. It's approximately a one-hour drive from Galway and only ten minutes from Clifden. A visit to this heritage and history center makes for an enlightening day out. The drive there incorporates some of the most striking landscape in Connemara. The land here is still farmed as it would have been in pre-famine times. Dminutive Connemara ponies can be seen at a distance, running wild across the harsh landscape. The center gives an insight into the events which shaped this beautiful region. View ancient structures such as crannógs, ring forts, clochauns, megalithic tombs (dolmen) and neolithic sites. Audiovisual presentations provide further descriptions. Complete your visit with a snack in the tearooms or a browse in the craft shop.
- Open Hours: Apr to Oct - Monday to Sunday from 10:00 AM to 06:00 PM
