Considered one of the newer tourist destinations, the simple town of Clifden in Ireland's Clifden Bay lies between the area's preserved boglands, magnetic backdrop of the 12 Ben Mountains, and the Atlantic Ocean. Referred to as "the stepping stones", it offers excellent shopping in nearby Galway plus the town itself having a reputation for being the "Gourmet Capital" of the country with a wide variety of restaurants and dining choices. Sight-seeing includes the 1815 Clifden Castle by John d'Arcy, the romantic Connemara, an arts festival in the last week of September, and the annual Connemara Pony Show on the third Thursday in August.
