Things to do: outdoors, museums, adventure
Leenaun, also Leenane, is a village and 1,845 acre townland in County Galway, Ireland. It is on the shore of Killary Harbour (one of only three fjords in Ireland), on the northern edge of Connemara, and is on the route of the Western Way long-distance trail. The village is at the junction of the N59 and R336 roads in a valley between the mountains of Munterowen West and Devilsmother, with a direct view of Ben Gorm mountain to the north, across the fjord.Leenaun was the setting for the film The Field and of Martin McDonagh's plays The Beauty Queen of Leenane and The Lonesome West.AmenitiesThe village is on the shore of Killary Harbour fjord. The ancient woods at Maam Valley are nearby, as is the Delphi Valley in County Mayo.Following torrential rain on 18 July 2007, the only river bridge in the village was swept away, cutting the town in half. It was part of the N59 national secondary road and had stood there for 182 years. A permanent replacement bridge was constructed with increased traffic capacity.
