Tour Details

Join fellow nature seekers on this landscape filled tour to the countryside of Ireland at Connemara National Park.

Leave the city of Dublin in a comfortable coach bus with your friendly guide and travel west to Galway. There, you will stop for a coffee break before heading back on the road to Connemara. The route to Connemara is very scenic, full of quaint little towns and lush countryside. Your Connemara tour bus will stop for a photo opportunity at the famous bridge used in John Wayne's film, "Quiet Man."

Your next stop is Maam Cross is an area in the park where you can view the first of many lakes that make Connemara so famous. Many parts of Connemara are gaeltacht regions, where most of the locals speak Irish. You just might learn a few words on this journey. You will drive past the magnificent Maumturk Mountains and the horseshoe part of the Twelve Bens Mountain Range, famous for its hiking trails.

After a quick rest in the village of Recess, you will travel through the breathtaking Inagh Valley. You will visit the Kylemore Abbey, an historic building nestled at the bottom of Druchruach Mountain that once was a girl's boarding school and is now a retreat for nuns. On the north shore of Lough Pollacappul, this site is one of the most romantic in Ireland.

Step aboard a boat for an hour and a half ride along the Killary Harbor, where you will get an incredible views of mussel beds, Ireland's only fjord, Killary Fjord, and a look at Mweelrea, the highest mountain in Ireland. After your boat tour, you will visit the city of Leenane, where you will see the set location for the movie, "The Field." Then it's off to Galway city for a bit of free time to roam the streets and shop. This city was the last stop of Christopher Columbus before he sailed to the West Indies, and it's your last stop on this incredible day trip. The Connemara tour ends back in Dublin. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to explore the natural wonders of Ireland.

Please Note: The boat cruise on Killary Harbour does not run during the winter months between November and March. Instead, entry and a guided tour of Kylemore Abbey, Walled Gardens and Gothic Church will be provided.
