Connemara National Park
This park (2 000ha) covers part of the Twelve Bens mountain range and includes heaths, marshes and meadows with oak and silver birch copses, as well as many Mediterranean, Alpine and Arctic plant species. The common European stag, originally from Connemara, and the Connemara pony have been reintroduced. The visitors' centre, located in an old farm, provides information on guided walks and natural footpaths.
