Ireland West offers tourists a glimpse into Ireland's Christian heritage while travelling through rich and varied countryside. This suggested trail offers a wide selection of sites that can be visited in just four days. Some are internationally known, such as Ireland's "holy mountain", Croagh Patrick and the ever popular Knock Shrine. Others are slightly off the beaten track. For example, Saint Brendan's Church of Ireland cathedral in Clonfert, is a small church in a rural village of east Galway, but is so significant that it was recently listed as one of the top one hundred of the world's most endangered monuments. Relax and enjoy discovering this rich Christian heritage, while travelling through the stunning landscape of the west of Ireland !
