Cleggan - Ireland Highlights:
Fishing village, Watch Tower, Connemara
Cleggan is a beautiful fishing village at the head of Cleggan Bay, a protected inlet on the Atlantic coast of Ireland, to the north of Galway Bay. Surrounded by bog, it has a harbour and pier for visiting the islands of Inishturk and Inisbofin. During the Napoleonic War a watch tower was built on Cleggan Hill where its ruins can still be seen. The views from Cleggan Hill are spectacular - the village houses clustered around the harbour, High Island , Crowe, Shark, Bofin, Turk, Clare islands out to sea, the Twelve Bens to the east and the distinctive hills of Mayo - Croagh Patrick, and Achill Head to the north.

The area was hit with great sadness in 1927 when the 'Cleggan Disaster' occurred, 25 fishermen from the area lost their lives in a freak storm. The whole area is rich in archeological sites be it the remains of the 7th century church of St. Feichin on Omey island, the wedge tomb near Sellerna beach or the fairy hills (drumlins) of Sheeauns. From here you can explore rugged beauty of the Connemara National Park.
