Comparable to Scotland and Iceland, Ireland is blessed with many attractive lakes (or loughs) and an extensive and often rugged coastline. Here’s a taster of a few from my travels around the island.
Lough Carrib and Loch Na Fooey are in Connemara, west of Galway.
The Connemara Peninsula is also home to notable parts of the 2,500km long Wild Atlantic Way, the longest defined costal touring route in the world. The views from the end of the Sky Road from Clifden to Kingston are particularly dramatic, and there were plenty more views on the coastal road through Cleggan to Clifden.
Couple of others, Lough Leane in Killarney National Park and the second largest harbour in the world at Cobh.
