For avid golfers, Ballyconneely is home to the Connemara Championship Golf Course. This Eddie Hackett designed course is set in stunning, rugged countryside. The back nine has been described as the equal of any in the world. Situated in Aillebrack, Ballyconneely overlooking the Atlantic Ocean it offers 360 degree views of the Golf Course and the unique Connemara landscape. This is a wonderful place to stop off and enjoy lunch or dinner after a round of golf or a walk on the surrounding beaches. Dun Loughin surfing beach is close by to this course.
The Point Pony trekking centre will ensure a fun family day out on one of their pony treks. A unique Connemara experience!
Take a tour of the Connemara Smoke House and watch how the salmon it traditionally prepared for smoking and enjoy a tasting of their delicious smoked salmon! Tours operate every Wednesday during the summer months at 3pm!
Why not take a trip to Derrygimlagh Hill, one of the most historical spots in Connemara for 2 very important reasons:

1. In the early years of the last century, Gugliemo Marconi established the first ever commercial transatlantic wireless station on Derrygimlagh.

2. Alcock and Brown landed their first ever transatlantic flight on the very same spot in 1919.
There’s no end of sea fishing opportunities in Connemara, especially in Ballyconneely so you can test your angling prowess! And with plentiful fish stocks it’s no wonder anglers flock here all year round. Popular spots for anglers include the harbour at Erislannan Point, the sheltered bay at Candoolin (close to the cottage) and Mannin Bay. Mannin Bay in particular has good innings for the small boat angler. Plaice is the most popular catch in this area while nearby Ballyconneely Bay has great potential for catching tope, ray, dogfish and Pollack.
Ballyconneely Beaches:

Ballyconneely peninsula is virtually ringed by beaches – from the Coral Strand at Derrygimlagh, west and north to Knock, Mannin, Dun Loughan and Truska, and east and south from Keeraunmore, Aillebrack, and Ballyconneely Bay to Calla, Dolan and Murvey.
