  • Day One | Connemara & Galway

    Set out into the west on this fantastic two day tour. We depart Dublin early (see booking calendar) with a drive through the midlands of Ireland and rolling green countryside. Reaching the west coast, you'll tour through the wilderness of Connemara with its spectacular mountain ranges and lakes. Enjoy a visit to the family farm experience and historic underground show mines at Glengowla. You’ll be enchanted by the unruly landscapes, haunting valleys and dramatic mountain ranges. Don’t be surprised if the locals greet you with a ‘cupla focail’ (few words) of Gaelic – as the region is one of the last few in Ireland to retain the native tongue.

    You'' arrive in Galway city by early afternoon. Enjoy ample time at leisure to explore this atmospheric university town - the City of The Tribes. Enjoy the vibrant nightlife in Galway and raise a pint in one of the many traditional pubs.

Continuing our day, we drive along the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’, making brief photo stops at points of interst along the way including natural vistas and ruins.

    A site of incredible natural beauty, the Cliffs have been cited by ‘Lonely Planet’, ‘Condé Nast Traveller’ and more as an absolute must-see while in Ireland. We spend approx 90 minutes at the cliffs, where you can stroll along the cliff-tops, taking in spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Aran Islands and the Twelve Pins Mountain Range. Lunch will typically be enjoyed in one of the local villages, usually Liscannor or Doolin. It's then back on to the tour bus for a brief photo and refreshment stop at the world-famous Bunratty Castle, which dates back to the 15th Century.
