SUGGESTED PRIVATE ITINERARY
An early start is recommended tom maximise time on tour today and most of our guests will opt for 08:00.

We’ll be sure to pause for that early morning caffeine fix along the way and before you know it, we’ll arrive at the traditional and charming fishing village of Kinvara. Capture photos of the Atlantic Ocean views before your short onward journey towards Dunguaire Castle, a traditional 16th Century Irish Castle which delights our international guests.
The next stop along the route is Corcomroe Abbey. This ancient abbey was constructed in the most remote and peaceful of locations to facilitate the solitary living of the monks it once accommodated. Today, the site remains just as isolated, allowing you to take in the miles and miles of beautiful landscapes, which surround it. If art history is your thing – you’ll love the historic artwork, which dates back as far as the 13th Century. Of course, your guide will be on hand to provide you with an in-depth history of the region as you travel. Your drive continues along the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ – one of the country’s most scenic drives. The journey takes us through a unique region known as ‘The Burren’. This plateau stretches across the horizon and features flowers and plants native to the Arctic, Mediterranean and Alps – all alongside one another.
