Travel guide to Letterfrack

Letterfrack, Leitir Fraic in Irish, is a tiny village founded by the The Religious Society of Friends or the Quakers in the 19th century. The Quaker movement was founded by George Fox in England in mid 17th century and brought to Ireland by William Edmunson. Letterfrack is one of a series of mission settlements along Connemara's north coast.

There is nothing much in Letterfrack itself as it is a one-street village. There are nice sandy beaches close to the village, but the sea is mostly too cold for swimming. Diamond Hill (445m) offers excellent views of the surrounding countryside.

Connemara National Park on the slopes of the Twelve Bens is close to Letterfrack. It covers some 2000-hectares of dramatic mountains, wide expanses of bog, heaths and grassland. If you are lucky you will find Connemara ponies grazing.There are also long and short trails and an audio-visual introduction to the park, especially nice when the weather is rainy.
