Head west to the heart of Connemara, where the stunning fjord of Killary Harbour awaits, forming a natural border between County Galway and County Mayo.

For those eager to explore, lace up your boots and set out on foot along the historical Green Road, which runs alongside the fjord for approximately 9km.
