  • The landing site is just one step of the bog trail which explais in much detail why a town existed on this site and why the aviators could not stay here for long after their plane crashed on the bog. ...  more »

  • Very interesting loop walk, 1 hour walking, 2 hours if stopping at the points of interest. Great history lesson, I had no knowledge of the Marconi station before visiting here.
  • The most pictures here are not taken at the landing place. The are from a place nearby, the Marconi Radio Station. Also a important historic place. I made a new point on Google Maps and placed some picture as well.
  • A must for a) radio amateurs, and b) aviators :-) Interesting site in a beautiful landscape! 73, HB9DHT
  • It’s in a field full of animal poop so expect flies, but it’s a nice monument and well worth the visit.
  • Fascinating experience, well worth it, but it does take a couple of hours.

Where to stay in Clifden

The authentic charms of Clifden are best experienced while staying in the center of this seaside town. Here you will find several places to spend the night, from upscale hotels to quaint bed and breakfasts. For a more typical Irish experience, opt for the latter. Backpackers generally head for the town's hostels, while travelers with a larger budget often stay at the 19th-century castle-turned-hotel. If price is not a concern, look into renting a traditional Irish home.
