Besides a visit to our bookshop (located conveniently in the centre of the Main Street) there are many things to do and places to visit around the village. From cycling to horse riding, falconry to fishing there are lots of activities for all the family to enjoy. And if you just prefer to relax and take life easy the village offers many fine eating places.
Across the river from the abbey you can access the forest which is home to caves, castles and a fairy tale tower built by the Guinness Family in the 19th century. There are many miles of trails to walk or cycle. If you enjoy history there is also the Heritage Trail around the village.
Of course the village of Cong is also famous as the location for the filming of the Quiet Man and the Quiet Man Museum on the corner of Abbey Street offers tours of the film locations.
If you are planning a trip to Ireland then Cong is the perfect destination. If you are staying at Ashford Castle then come down to the village and see the best that Ireland has to offer.
