From Dublin: Connemara and Galway – Full Day Coach Tour – 13 hours
Experience this full day excursion to Connemara and Galway with our coaching partner. This one day tour to Connemara transports groups to the West coast and the Wild Atlantic Way.
There they will show you the most breath-taking sights and scenery Connemara has on offer. With the wild Atlantic on one side during the day and wild endless mountains on the other, they will feel so elated driving through this amazing place. One of only two places in Ireland where sheep have the right of way over cars on the road! Connemara is one of the most beautiful and mysterious regions in Ireland. Its endless mountains, lakes and wild landscape will live long in the memory.
We start the tour with a smooth boat cruise on Killary Fjord on-board the Connemara Lady. Breathe in the fresh air of the Atlantic and explore the gaze at different shapes and rock formations that are surrounded in mystery and history. You can also try a Guinness or Irish Coffee at the boat bar, or perhaps try some freshly steamed mussels or salmon fresh from the harbour.
From there we visit Kylemore Abbey, a place of great beauty and tragedy widely renowned as being one of the premier works of architecture in Ireland.
On the way back to Galway we 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. We then come back in through Galway, Irelands most artistic and bohemian city. Discover this ancient medieval city by wandering through its many narrow streets and lanes while listening to musicians and wondering at the myriad of street performers.
Galway and the west coast of Ireland is shrouded in history and culture, experience it all in one day before we return to Dublin.
