Connemara is a mystical region, which encompasses a significant portion of County Galway and some of County Mayo. Considered by many devotees as the spiritual home of Ireland, Connemara retains a unique sense of Irish heritage that draws visitors in their droves. Mountain ranges; namely the Twelve Bens and the Maumturks; dominate the skyline, while pristine sandy beaches make intimate bedfellows for the indomitable Atlantic Ocean. Offshore, the horizon is dotted with innumerate islands; some inhabited and others eerily deserted.
Connemara is a diving Mecca; characterised by exceptional inwater visibility, unspoilt seascape, dramatic underwater topography and abundant marine life. World-class dives are easily attainable; some within minutes' reach of the mainland and others a little further afield near the islands. Dive boats to the islands are often escorted by pods of playful dolphins.
With an infinite number of dive sites available, for the moment let us choose Inis Turk, Inis Boffin and the Killary Fjord as our protagonists. (Inis means island)
