We stayed near the Quiet Man Bridge so it was fun crossing the bridge and seeing it in the old classic movie. This area of Ireland was and is special and the bridge contributes to the entire experience. Go spend time in Western Ireland.

Of course if you are a fan of the movie, you will want to see and walk across it. It's a vey tranquil place with scenery that is all Irish. Best if there are few there to spoil the pics, but still an easy stop.

At one end of the town - you might drive across it before you realize what it is. You can park at the church and hop out for a few snaps before driving into the village. Watch for traffic - as this bridge is still...More
