Beautiful Irish Countryside Of County Galway
Photograph - Photo
I had been in the city of Galway for over a week when I happened to discover that the hostel where I was staying had another hostel out in the wilds of Connemara. There were so few people there that I was honestly surprised they were even open in the winter, but it made the entire experience of roaming the Irish countryside on my own so zen and memorable for me.
It was almost as if it were just me and the sheep and the odd car in some remote and forgotten wilderness. And the weather was so incredibly all over the place. One minute rain poured, and then the clouds would part enough for a sun-filled moment to remember like the one pictured here.
It was just what the doctor ordered. As much as I loved Galway, I wouldn't exchange my days in Connemara for anything.Away from the city and able to properly enjoy the amazing vistas that the countryside had to offer... wow... If it's this beautiful in winter, I must return in the summer one day. Except I may not leave if I do!
The water you see to the right of the narrow country road is either Killary Fjord or Killary Harbour depending on who you ask. The marketing types have seized on the designation of this being Ireland's only fjord. Meanwhile others seem to suggest this estuary is simply a lovely deep natural harbour. Whatever the case, it was an amazing neighbor for a couple of nights in the wilds of County Galway.
