Continuing onto Screebe a small village in Connemara,  it was the location of one of Irelands few peat-burning power stations.  This was a source of employment locally at the time.  Screebe is elegant and unasuuming, in a beautifully picturesque setting overlooking Camus Bay it has hospitality and beauty in spades.  After Sceebe you continue onto Clifden where this section ends.
