Day Trip to Connemara and Galway – Full Day Coach Tour

Experience this full day excursion to Connemara and Galway on the Wild Atlantic Way with our coaching partner. With the wild Atlantic on one side during the day and wild endless mountains on the other, the group will feel so elated driving through this amazing place.

Connemara is one of the most beautiful and mysterious regions in Ireland. Its endless mountains, lakes and wild landscape creates a very memorable stay.

The tour starts with a boat cruise on Killary Fjord (only from April to October). Breathe in the fresh air of the Atlantic and explore the many different shapes and rock formations that are surrounded in mystery and history. Walk across one of Ireland’s amazing bogs or maybe a leisurely stroll along the beautiful sweeping beach looking out on Killary Fjord. From November to March the group will watch a Sheepdog Demonstration as the cruise does not operate during winter.

Afterwards the group will visit Kylemore Abbey, a place of great beauty and renowned as being one of the premier works of architecture in Ireland.

On the way back to Galway the coach will stop for photos at Lake Inagh where groups will get to see what turf from a wild Atlantic bog looks like from close up. Back in Galway the group has some time at leisure and can stroll through the many narrow streets and lanes while listening to musicians and enjoying the colourful and medieval architecture of Galway.

On their travels with them, they will fill groups in on the history, folklore, geology along with all the current local information, and maybe the gossip, about the areas they visit. Their knowledgeable local guides will see to it that no question they have about their day tour to Connemara and Galway goes unanswered.
