The walk through the Derrygimlagh Bog provides enough attractions to keep even a laconic walker forging ahead. At every turn there is a marker with some bit of interesting information. The walk is mostly flat with no hills to tire the weary. My favorite marker...More

As a stand alone this landmark is not exactly riveting. But if you consider its location, incorporated into the Marconi Walk and telegraph milestone it makes for an enjoyable visit. The pilots were daring and oh so lucky to crash land with their lives intact.

This wonderful looped walk gets you off the beaten track to explore the edge of the Roundstone Bog complex. The information panels telling the story of the early 20th century Marconi wireless station, and the landing of Alcock and Brown in 1919 show how Connemara...More
