I work here in Killary where my family set up 34 years ago after happening upon this stunning location. In Killary you might meet me or one of my colleagues we are all excited to see you come through the doors and hope you have and amazing time here.
My time here in Connemara, and indeed yours should also, consists of spending time in the outdoors from mountains to the sea it is a great playground to explore.
