Overview

Dublin: Depart from Dublin and head West for a great day tour to Connemara. On your way across the midlands of Ireland you'll make a comfort stop for refreshments and a chance to stretch your legs. On arrival in Connemara, you'll visit the picturesque village of Cong, this is a national Tidy-Town winner and the location for the Oscar winning Hollywood movie - The Quiet Man.

Cong:
Famed by John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara in the film Quiet Man, the village is home to Ashford castle, a regular haunt of the rich and famous and a wedding venue for a host of international stars i.e Pierce Brosnan. From beautiful abbeys to medieval castles, rivers, stunning lakes, and babbling brooks, Cong is a true picture postcard of Ireland. You'll take a break here with a visit to Cong Abbey, the ruins of an Augustinian monastery. Take time to enjoy lunch in this beautiful village.

Lough Corrib: Well know for its fishing, Lough Corrib is the second largest lake in Ireland after Lough Neagh. Surrounded by its abundance of wildlife such as otters, hawks, minks, birds the lake consists of 356 different islands. The most famous island among them is Inchagoil island with its spectacular views of Maumturk range, Joyce country, and the mountains of Connemara.

Connemara Wilderness: You'll continue driving through the wilderness of Connemara which provides a great opportunity to enjoy the unique landscape, beautiful lakes, valleys, and mountainous scenery. Ravaged by famine, and predominantly Gaelic the people here still strive to maintain the remanence of rural culture and the traditional Irish way of life.

The Deserted Valley: You'll head back to Galway via the Maam Valley, an area of scenic and unsurpassed beauty with the lakes of Connemara which unfold in among the twelve Bens mountains. You'll then travel back along the coast and Galway Bay through Spiddal, and enjoy magnificent views of the Atlantic Coastline to Galway and Aran Islands.

Galway: You'll arrive in Galway, known as the city of tribes and once home to Christopher Columbus. The city is Ireland's traditional capital and home to some of the finest traditional musicians. Your 2-hour stop allows you to explore the city at your leisure. Explore highlights like the Spanish Arch, St. Nicholas Cathedral, the colourful Shop Street or maybe even sample some world famous Galway Bay oysters. You'll return to Dublin late in the evening after enjoying a great day out.
