Renvyle Peninsula, Connemara, County Galway, West of Ireland: The Renvyle Peninsula seems to be a well less known gem in the landscape of Connemara. Renvyle Beach is good, but limited parking and on the Atlantic side at Renvyle Point there is some excellent short pebble-beach-coastal walking. There are the remains of Renvyle Castle tower and an old church and graveyard with some interesting headstones!
