A Mayo Wild Atlantic Way Signature Discovery Point

Killary Harbour

Killary Harbour is in the heart of Connemara and is a great example of a fjord (and one that every Irish geography student remembers from their school days!). It forms part of a natural border between the counties of Galway and Mayo. From this point you can see the Maumturk Mountains and the Twelve Bens.

Nearby is the Green Road, a 9km route built in the 19th century that weaves it’s way to the east along the side of the fjord toward Leenane, the location of Jim Sheridan’s movie The Field starring Richard Harris, Sean Bean, John Hurt, Brenda Fricker and Tom Berenger.
