Clifden (Located fifteen minutes drive from Letterfrack) Clifden is the capital of Connemara and famous for many reasons.

The first radio signals to cross the Atlantic by Marcony, the first transatlantic flight by Alcock and Brown. Very popular tourist destinations both for the irish tourist and Eurpean – American and people all over the world alike particularly in the summer months.

Clifden resembles a market town with its colourful shop fronts and circular layout. It is the home of Peter O’toole. The biggest Connemara pony sales in the world take place here and the highlight of any visit would be the Sky Road which loops around Clifden and takes you towards Letterfrack.
