Location is close to the coast, where the River Erriff flows into Ireland’s only fjord, Killary which in turn links with the Atlantic Ocean.

The fast flowing waters provide good opportunities for kayaking and similar white water activities.
Connemara ponies can be seen on the rugged landscape which is also popular with hikers.
