We stayed at the Leenane Hotel and walked the Fjord. Beautiful and such vast silence. Sheep abounded on the high road, traffic was busy on the lower road. Great hill-walking for long or short routes and stunning scenery.

Took the 90 minute boat tour. It was informative, enjoyable and a break from driving. It was the off season so it was particularly spacious and enjoyable for a person that enjoys solitude. The scenery is wonderful. The trip just long enough.

I can't visit Ireland without stopping by Leenane and taking in this incredible sight. Who can resist the Connemara region?! The Killary Fjord is a marvel and wonderful to visit. Next time I'll probably take the boat tour. Hopefully the fresh mussel truck stand will...More

I think that fact that it's Irelands only Fjord means that it's worth a visit. The sheer size of it makes skipping it on a visit to Connemara almost impossible to avoid
