The Killary Fjord An Caoláire Rua is the natural boundary between Mayo and Galway amidst dramatic North Connemara landscape. The inlet breaches eastwards alongside the great highland Mountain of Mweelrea and the rugged verges of Foher and Bunowen. A rocky trail is firmly etched on the hillside and contours along the southern shore side of the Killary. This trail was originally constructed in the 19th century to alleviate communities in the area of deprivation and hunger.
