Connemara Marble Factory
One of the most famous of all Irish marbles is Connemara marble. Valued & famed for its jade & green colours this has been used in architecture & jewellery since its discovery! A visit to the factory working with Connemara marble is interesting & culturally important.
Once a fairy-tale castle of a wealthy Anglo Irish Merchant family, today the home to the Benedictine Order of Nuns & used as a girls School till recently.
Coral Beaches of Connemara
While the natural sand of Connemara is mostly silver, it is common to come across quite coral beaches which are soft on the feet & when examined contain tiny fragments of the sea creatures which lived here!
The natural beauty of the mountain ranges, peatlands, lakes & rivers are complemented by the occasional view of horses grazing as well as sheep & cattle. It is a truly organic experience.
