Welcome to Cong


The village of Cong is located at the heart of Ireland’s Lake District on the borders of County Mayo and County Galway. Being on the doorstep of Connemara and half way between the towns of Galway and Westport it is the ideal base for touring the West of Ireland. Kylemore Abbey, Croagh Patrick and Knock Shrine are all an easy drive away.

The village is surrounded by the most beautiful lakes and rivers and is an oasis of calm and tranquillity in the most scenic and picturesque part of Ireland. Step back in time to visit castles, caves, ancient abbeys and standing stones – all just a stones throw from Ryan’s Hotel. Or take a stroll around the village streets and visit the Art Gallery, Craft Shops, Bookshop and Woollen Market.

From cycling to horse riding, falconry to fishing there are lots of activities for all the family to enjoy.

Cong has something for everybody and we are sure it will have something for you.
