One of the most beautiful beaches in Ireland. It backs onto Gurteen bay which rivals its beauty. It is as good for a walk on a cold winters day as it is for a swim and picnic on a hot summers day.

“Glengowla Mines and working farm are steeped in history. In those days, monks often put valuable covers on their books and manuscripts, and the silver and other precious metals found here were sought after. The first miners at Glengowla were the Hodgsons from Gortevagh. Book covers were often made of metal and decorated with valuables such as jewels. The monks paid silversmiths to make gold and silver chalices. An example of these chalices is the Ardagh Chalice, which you can see in the National Museum in Dublin. The Ardagh Chalice was made in the eight century AD. Ireland is the biggest miner of lead in Europe and along with the lead found at Glengowla when mining started, there were large marble chambers and caverns studded with lead and silver pyrite and veins of calcite and quartz in addition to other precious materials. The mine is noted for its rare and beautiful octahedral crystals of fluorite and quartz. The Geoghegan family became the first owners of Glengowla after Independence and it was probably due to the Great Famine that mining started in 1850. ”

“The Castle Restaurant is the "19th Hole" at Oughterard Golf Club. Located just outside the village on the Galway road. Chef Aidan has a delicious menu. It is very suitable venue for sitdown meals of large groups or parties. Welcomes visitors which are not golfers all the time so do not feel as if you will be outsiders encroaching ”

“An approx. 45 km’s drive alongside the Upper Mask area, Lough Nafoey, mountain ranges, rhododendron and fuchsia hedges. You can make a mid-way stop at a local craft shop. One, but not the only one, is located right after the junction that leads to “Maam” after passing Lough Nafoey and the mountain area. It has seen better days but it might still be worth stopping for a tea. ”
