Ireland

Visit Killary Harbour, a gorgeous 16km long fjord. It is one of just three glacial fjords that exist in Ireland, the others being Lough Swilly and Carlingford Lough.

Admire the towering height of Mweelrea, Connacht's highest mountain which rises up to 814 metres as well as the Maumturk Mountains and marvellous Twelve Bens. The area has some of Ireland's most dramatic scenery.

Discover the hamlet of Rossroe near the mouth of the fjord and see the plaque and building formerly used by Ludwig Wittgenstein, the famous philosopher, as a quiet place to write after World War II.

Walk the historical Green Road that runs alongside the fjord and stretches for approximately 9km. This rough road was part of the famine relief programme during the 19th century. Admire the rows upon rows of mussel rafts peeping out of the water; a common sight to the east of the fjord.
