There is also high ropes, a climbing tower, Hobie cat sailing, gorge walking, a zip wire and, in winter, snow boarding. So, plenty to do then!

Their aim is to give beginners confidence in and enthusiams for new pursuits, while having plenty to challenge the more experienced – and they acheive this well.

Killary Fjord by Gerard Lovett

Not surprisingly its a very popular place for groups of people to go together, there is enough variety on offer to ensure everyone gets to do something they will enjoy. They have excellent facilities for teaching children, and their annual summer camps are extremely popular.

It can get a bit rowdy at night, it’s popular with hen and stag parties who like to let their hair down at the end of the day! So families may prefer to use it as a day time location rather than somewhere to stay overnight.

The location is magnificent, overlooking the crystal clear waters of Killary Harbour, which is Ireland’s only true fjord.

    My husband and I recently toured Ireland. During our stay we took the trip out & in along the fjord on the Connemara Lady. It was a cold, windy, rainy day and we could not hear all the information & mythology being told to us about the origins of the fjord. I am trying to find a copy of that commentary. Could you help me? THANK YOU! We enjoyed out trip so very much. The land is beautiful, and your heritage so rich. I want to remember as much as possible. The commentary would be a great blessing to go along with my photographs.
