The Renvyle peninsula is home to some of Connemara’s most spectacular scenery. Its dramatic sweeping beaches, bounded by mountain views, are awe inspiring. Most activity takes place in the lively villages of Tullycross and Tully, both of which offer warm and welcoming pubs, restaurants and accommodation.
Pony trekking is a popular activity, as are many water sports, which take place at beaches Glassilaun, White Strand, Lettergesh and Tully. Derryinver Quay and Ballinakill Harbour are also well worth a visit. Nature lovers and bird watchers will enjoy the opportunity to discover a great variety of bird and marine life.
The traditional music scene is vibrant in Renvyle. Regular musical concerts and dancing take place at the Teach Ceol in Tully, and everyone is encouraged to join in. The Connemara Mussel Festival takes place on the May Bank Holiday annually showcasing the locally produced seafood specialities in a festival atmosphere.
The Renvyle Peninsula begins shortly after Letterfrack when driving North-West on the Tullycross road (Letterfrack is 15minutes from the town of Clifden).
