The West of Ireland is renowned as a golfing haven.
Galway offers the best in quality golf courses and assures a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Oughterard has its own 18-hole parkland course as well as pitch & putt

 The 18-hole championship links at Connemara Golf Club (near Cliften) are probably the most famous and challenging. The course is further enhanced by the wonderful Atlantic Backdrop.

The seaside location of Galway Golf Course, (18-hole), make it ideal.
There are long established parkland courses like Tuam, Athenry and new courses like Galway Bay Golf and Country Club and Gort.

One not to be missed is Bearna Golf and Country Club which is surrounded by absolutely captivating scenery.
Other 18-hole courses in Galway include: Balinasloe, Loughrea, Mountbellew and Portumna.

 Westport, Co. Mayo and Lahinch, Co. Clare are another two championship courses within a 2 hour drive. Westport Golf Club lies under the shadow of Croagh Patrick, "Ireland's Holy Mountain" whilst the course at Lahinch overlooks the Atlantic with the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren close by.




Moycullen - Killannin Lakes District This unique rural district has much to offer the discerning angler anxious to capture the true spirit of the gentle art.
Here it is possible to realise the dream of all anglers - peace and quiet in a woodland setting with a backdrop of rolling hills; truly a haven of tranquility with abundant wildlife and unpolluted waters everywhere. Within a very short distance there are nine smallish lakes, covering over 700 acres, interconnected by a canal. This vast acreage of practically virgin waters awaits the angling visitor with abundant stocks of coarse fish like bream, perch, pike, rudd and eel, many of specimen size.



There are many short coastal, mountain and bog walks in the region. A walk up Newtown Hill, behind the farmhouse, affords scenic views of Ross Lake and the area.
Also, a booklet, produced by Moycullen / Killannin Tourism, is available at Rockfield House showing 10 suggested walking routes in the area.

For the more ambitious hill-walker, increasingly popular walking routes can be followed on an organised basis.
Walks, varying from one day to one week, are marked out with distinctive pointers.
Detailed charts and information pamphlets are available. The Western Way is a good example.

The Western Way


This route starts at Oughterard and follows the shore of Lough Corrib to Maam. From Maam it finds a low level way through the great quartzite ranges of the Maum Turks and Twelve Bens, before descending to the deep, narrow valley of Killary Harbour and junction with the Western Way (Mayo) near Leenaun.

The Route: Oughterard, Maam, Maameen, Inagh, Toorenacoona, Leenaun.
Distance: 50 km/31 miles.

The Corrib Princess makes a leisurely 90 minute cruise on Lough Corrib, Ireland's second largest lake.
