Connemara National Park

Search





 

Connemara was first dedicated as a National Park in the 1980s, and features 2,957 hectares of mountains, bogs, heaths, grasslands and forests. The park is located in the west of Ireland in County Galway, and is an incredibly beautiful region. There is a variety of flora and fauna in the region, many of which are endangered or protected, and this is the main reason Connemara has become a National Park. Bog- and Heath-land are the main landscapes in Connemara National Park, and most of the area is blanketed with Purple Moorgrass, which gives the hills and plains a purple tinge which is almost magical. Carnivorous plants also play an important role in the park's ecosystem, the most common being sundew and butterworts trap.

There are various Historic sites in the region, a few of which are a 19th century graveyard and severaly 4,000 year old megalithic court tombs. These are magnificent reminders of the ancient civilisations that once lived in Ireland and are excellent tourist attractions. Connemara National Park is also noted for its diversity of bird life. Common song birds include meadow pipits, skylarks, stonechats, chaffinches, robins and wrens, and native birds of prey include the kestrel and Eurasian Sparrowhawk with the merlin and peregrine falcon being seen less frequently.
