General

  • In the Connemara countryside in Quiet Man country
  • Mini cinema, barbecue area, sitting room and playground
  • Discount vouchers for local cafés and restaurants

Did you know that John Wayne film The Quiet Man was filmed in the small Irish village of Cong among the Connemara countryside? If you don't, you do now – and if you've never seen the film, you will here, as it's shown every night in town in the village's Quiet Man cinema.

Cong is fairly famed in other ways for such a small village: it's the setting of Cong Abbey, where Ireland's last High King spent his final years, and of Ashford Castle, the medieval fortification updated in Victorian times and used along with the village in that film of John Wayne. (And Oscar Wilde's dad lived in town for a time too.)

If you're anything like us and now want to stay in Cong with some immediacy, make for Cong Caravan and Camping Park a mile from the village. Set on the borders of counties Mayo and Galway and between Lough Mask and Lough Corrib, it's the nearest camping and caravan park to Ashford Castle and is on the only public road to Lough Corrib.

Site facilities include a kitchen and a barbecue area available for guests, a sitting room, a(nother) mini cinema, a playground, a small shop, and a freezer in which to stash any catches landed at the surrounding rivers. Local information and maps are available on site as well as discount vouchers for local cafés and restaurants.

Local attractions

Cong, glorious Cong... see the sights of this pretty village before getting into the Connemara countryside around Cong Caravan and Camping Park. We've already mentioned the cinema, Ashford Castle and Cong Abbey, but you'll also find the Quiet Man Cottage Museum (of course) with replica sets from the film, and an old Celtic cross in the village centre.

Fishing is available nearby (also of course), along with boat hire, walks of forest, riverside and lakeside around Lough Corrib and Lough Mask, lake cruises, horse riding and pony trekking, falconry, bike hire and golf. Ghost tours are to hand too if you feel up for it: ask the Cong Caravan team or in the village for details.

Many Co Mayo or Galway caves, castles, stone circles and cairns are within easy driving distance along with the lovely landscape of Connemara, and both Galway and Westport are close for urban days out: if you're in Galway, do have the mussels.
