Beautiful, well worth our trip. My late father was a huge fan not only of both John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara but the Quiet Man movie was his favourite. It meant such a lot to visit here and it didn’t disappoint.

Obviously the statue is just part of the experience, the town is stunning and worth visiting.

Right in the middle of the little village of Cong lies this lovely statue of John Wayne and Maureen in a scene from 'The Quiet Man' which was filmed here in the summer of 1951.
Well worth a photo stop.

Although I haven't seen the film, The Quiet Man film has a bit impact on Cong. The residents and businesses are proud of the connection and the statue is photogenic and creates a nice atmosphere

You must take a picture next to this iconic statue. Of course watch the movie first so you “get it”!

Nice statue in the middle of this quaint little village. The village was made famous by the Quiet Man film and it is nice to see a nice statue as a tribute. Can be busy as you would expect as everyone wants to have their picture taken here.

If you have seen the movie you will find the statue to be of interest. It is located prominently in the village.
