Situated close to Clifden Bay and in front of the twelve pins mountains, Clifden offers superb views.
Clifden is the largest town in the Connemara area. It is surrounded by the Twelve Pins mountain range which offers a beautiful backdrop to the town. It was founded in 1812 by John D'Arcy as a small market town for the region. The ruins of Clifden Castle can be found on the Sky road out of the town. The Church of Ireland in the town is proud to display a copy of the Cross of Cong. The first transatlantic radio message was sent from the Marconi Wireless Station just south of the town. Clifden area is also remembered as the landing site for the first non-stop transatlantic flight in 1919 by Alcock and Brown. During the month of August the famous Connemara Pony Show is held, a show not to be missed by the visitor.
