The town of Woodford Is located in a scenic area of South East County Galway, with the River Shannon on one side and on the other the Slieve Aughty mountains.
Woodford is equidistant from Galway and Limerick, an hour from Shannon airport and three hours from Dublin. There are two golf courses within easy reach of the town, at Curra and Portumna, and there is fishing and boating on the Shannon. The ajoining area is prefect for walking through woods and open moors .
Woodford is well placed for travelling on to the other scenic areas of Galway and Connemara.
