Where you’ll be

Furbogh, County Galway, Ireland

Furbo, in Galway is the gateway to Connemara, and is on the well signposted ‘Wild Atlantic Way’, a tourism trail on the west coast of Ireland. Connemara is known for its rugged beauty and incredible scenery. As you near the coast you’ll find stunning unpolluted coastlines, sandy beaches, blue waters, and fishing villages such as Roundstone. Connemara National Park is a vast expanse of mountains, bogs, heathland, rivers and lakes and is home to the Connemara pony. Horse riding, walking, cycling, hiking, surfing, canoeing and coasteering are just a few of the activities on offer, not to mention sampling the Guinness, the ‘craic & ceol’ (music and fun) in the friendly local pubs.
National Geographic names Galway among world's best city trips.
'City of The Tribes' combines big events and small, community initiatives to impress National Geographic Travel

I am a retired teacher who loves golf, gardening and my family. My mum and grandparents were from Ireland. The family moved to England when she was young but they holidayed back home regularly. As children my mother continued to take us over every year to see family and we fell in love with Galway.
