Food Scene
Creative and super yummy food, especially the vegetarian burger and the chowder. Amazing view from the beer garden at the back of the bar. Early gigs of trad music on the weekends and of course the Saturday night fever. All of this delivered by a friendly and professional team.

Fine dining at Rosleague Restaurant is a traditional occasion unique, yet relaxed. Fresh Seafood and Leenane Mountain Lamb are the manor’s specialty with a strong focus on the finest and freshest locally sourced ingredients and produce. Stunning surroundings, very close to the Connemara National Park. I could not recommend this place more.

Blanket bog, a stunning mosaic of tiny lakes and peat, where you can stop and view two sites of international historical significance. First, you’ll pass the scattered remnants of the world’s first permanent transatlantic radio station, built more than a century ago by Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi and transmitted the first transatlantic radio signal in 1907. It burned to the ground during the Irish War of Independence, but you can still view the vast site. you’ll also come across a white memorial in the shape of an airplane wing, tribute to Alcock and Brown, the first pilots to fly non-stop across the Atlantic, before they crash-landed (safely) in Derrigimlagh Bog in 1907.
