Few villages are more beguilingly situated than Cong, balanced on a thin neck of land between two lochs – the Connemara Mountains of County Galway on one side, the emerald green fields of County Mayo on the other. Check out the kitschy Quiet Man Museum (the 1950s Oscar-winning movie was filmed here) and the extensive medieval ruins of Cong Abbey, its stone vaulted archways and Celtic crosses an atmospheric setting for a stroll.
