July Mornings in Connemara

green countrysideThere is no better time to walk Connemara than during the beautiful July mornings. 

Grab your best friend, your dogs, a few sandwiches and a bottle of water and hit the roads. 

Quite often you don't really need to walk far for a good view especially if you are staying in Oughterard, Co Galway. Believe me, just in about 10-15 minutes you can be out of town, overlooking the area from an amazing high spot and thinking, WHY DIDN'T I DO THAT EARLIER?!

Cross  the bridge at the church, turn right and continue up by the school and then continue on... 

In about 40 minutes (very slow walk) you will be admiring the best view over Lough Corrib and the surrounding woods and bogs. You would be walking the High road or as the locals call it Newvillage area. 

This is a lovely little road but beware, it can get pretty busy at times like mid morning and late afternoon when people commute to work.

 Right now I will show you the best time when no one is watching ;-)

The Irish Green

My favourite time of the year!! 

Actually I say that with every season, but I do love the warmth of summer and of course the fantastic green colours of Ireland.

Believe me, the Irish green is not a joke!!
