Pocket Guide: Alcock and Brown Memorial Alcock and Brown Memorial Hotels

The first ever transatlantic flight landed in Galway in June 1919. Alcock and Brown flew their modified Vickers Bomber from St John's, Newfoundland, to Clifden, Connemara National Park in County Galway, Ireland in under 72 consecutive hours. The site where the pair landed has been preserved as a national and international monument to the history of aviation.

A small cairn marks the spot where news of the flight’s landing was transmitted by wireless to London. A sculpture of an aircraft's tail fin stands around a mile from their landing spot, to mark the fourth anniversary of the landing.
