Leenane is an idyllic and pretty Irish village situated on the edge of a fjord (The Killary) in Connemara in the Ireland. It was chosen as the location to film the screen adaption of John B Keanes "The Field". It has a couple of small pubs, which are packed with locals most of the time, and a few small restaurants too. It also is the site of a "Heritage Centre", which offers local arts and crafts, and a bit of history too.
- Doolough and Delphi valley. Some awesome and picturesque landscapes.
- Maam Valley. The ancient woods give the place a magical feel, overshadowed by the Maamturk Mountains with their numerous pre-historic and early historic sites.
- Blackberry Cafe. Reasonably priced, home-cooked thoroughly delicious meal in a refreshingly welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
- Hamiltons Bar. Enjoy a savage pint and a bit of craic beside the open fire.
- Joe Kane's, Maam. Very popular for tourists and locals alike.
- The convent B&B. Well priced and has some of the most fantastic views of Killary harbour. Worth staying here especially for the experience of having breakfast served in the converted chapel of the old convent with the sun shining through the stained glass windows.
