Peacockes Viewing Tower is a 360° viewing tower offering panoramic views of Connemara, located at Maam Cross, the gateway to Connemara.

While visiting Connemara, a trip to the top of the viewing tower located at Peacockes Hotel in Maam Cross is a must see. Completely free, all you need is enough wind to climb all 94 steps. At the end of your climb, you'll be rewarded with a panoramic view of Connemara. Who knows, you might even find inspiration for further travels.
