We headed on down to Westport - a nice town although a bit 'touristy'. It reminded us a bit of Bourton-on-th-Water in England Cotswolds surprisingly. From there, we intended to get down to the coast at Clifden for the night but the bridge was down at Leenane meaning a massive detour so we headed inland across the moors instead and ended up at Cong between Counties Mayo and Galway. The weather was atrocious across the hills and we could see very little. The roads were very narrow but nothing coming in the opposite direction.
As we were coming down again off the hills, we could see what we thought at first was the sea but realised it couldn't be, then wondered if we were looking down on more clouds. It turned out to be the vast expanse of Lough Mask. It would have been beautiful on a clear day and had it's own beauty in the murky weather too.
By the time we got to the site at Cong, the rain had stopped. The site included a hostel and was clean and very well run
