Leam West Bog Nature Reserve is an area of very diverse blanket bog developed over both acid and base rich rocks at the north east limit of the Connemara blanket bogs. 

It forms part of one of the largest areas of intact bog in Connemara and it is one of the few sites containing both lowland and highland bog. 

A large number of habitats occur including rock outcrops, bog pools, extremely wet quaking areas, streams and relatively nutrient rich flushes.
