Maum (An Mám in Irish) in Connemara is a lovely wooded town land beside some great fishing lakes. The ancient woods give the place a magical feel, overshadowed by the Maamturk Mountains with their numerous pre-historic and early historic sites.

The Western Way, a long distance walking trail will take you from the southern end of the Maam Valley to the ancient site of Mámean.  On the way to Leenane you will see a signpost for 'Leaba Pháiric' (Patrick's bed), a rock recess and 'Tobar Pháraic' (Patrick's well) which mark a place of pilgrimage, they were traditionally visited on the last Sunday in July, but less so nowadays.
