Maam Cross

Maam Cross is a village in the Gaeltacht area of Connemara in Co Galway. It is best known as a crossroad as it is a meeting point of several roads that traverse the different parts of Connemara. Nestling in the shadows of Mount Leckavrea and surrounded by beautiful lakes, Maam Cross leads to the four quarters of Connemara. Just 42.5km from Galway City, it is an ideal base for hill walkers, cyclists and botanists while golfing, horse riding, fishing and water sports are also available locally. The city can be accessed via a number of bus routes including the 419 and 923. The route from Oughterard to Maam Cross (10 miles/16 km) lies through countryside that presents an amazing variety of bog, moorland, lake and mountain scenery. Southward from the cross a road runs through lake-strewn moorland to Screeb Lodge and Gortmore. At Gortmore the road on the left leads to Rosmuc, where the author and 1916 leader Padraic Pearse studied the Irish language. His cottage here is open to the public. There is real Connemara scenery here for the walker, cyclist or climber. At Maumeen is ‘St Patrick’s Bed’ and ‘St Patrick’s Wall’, which attracts a local pilgrimage on the last sunday of July. Local amenities include a hotel and a shop/filling station.
