Tullycross

A charming, small town nestled in the Renvyle Peninsula, in the heart of Connemara, whose Gaelic name Tulach na Croise means Cross on the hill. The traditional thatched cottages add to the beauty and tranquillity of this little village situated on the Wild Atlantic way in Connemara. The local Church, dedicated to Christ the King, with its stained glass windows by renowned artist Harry Clarke overlooks the square. A notable feature of this village is the Ogham Stone; the ancient script spells out the name of the townland, Gurteenachough, meaning little garden of stones.
Further on the road leading to Renvyle, there is the tiny village of Tully, yet big enough to have its well-stocked supermarket with petrol station. During the Summer the local theatre Teach Ceoil is a popular venue for traditional dancers and musicians.
