Butterflies

For many years we provided species guides in the Visitor Centre in Connemara National Park, which have proved very popular with visitors.

We are currently putting together a series of digital versions of these species guides, that visitors can download before/after a visit to the National Park. We are starting with a guide on some of the butterflies you might expect to see in the National Park.

We hope you enjoy the guide. If you have any suggestions on other species to feature, do please get in touch by phone 087 291 9721 or email cnp@chg.gov.ie
