Travelling from Galway
Follow the signs for the N59 Clifden and after passing through the towns of Moycullen and Oughterard you will arrive at Maam Cross (easily distinguished by Peacock’s hotel complex on your right). At this crossroads turn right following the signs for Leenaun. At the next T-junction at Keane’s Pub, turn left. After about 11km this road will bring you into the village of Leenane. You will then go through the village and taking the Clifden Road (Connemara Loop) – keep the water on your right hand side, where after another 7km you will see the sign for Bunowen L51022. Take the road to your right for 1km untill you arrive at Killary Sheep Farm – which is sign posted at the end of the road.
Travelling from Westport
Once in Westport look for the Leenane / Clifden road (signposted N59) and follow it for about 30kms to the village of Leenane. Once in Leenane turn right onto the Clifden road (N59) keeping the Killary Fjord on your right and we are 7km along this road on the right hand side sign posted BUNOWEN L51022. We recommend going via Westport if you are coming from Dublin on a Friday evening to avoid the traffic in Galway City.
Travelling from Dublin
To get to Killary Sheep Farm from Dublin you can travel via Westport or Galway City. The road is mostly motorway and dual carriageway from Dublin to Galway, which makes it a more direct route. To get to Westport from Dublin you will be taking the M4 motorway and then joining the N5 (national route) from Mullingar via Longford, Strokestown, Castlebar and then Westport. As you do not pass through any cities this may be a quicker route during rush-hour periods.
