Description

Fly from Galway to Inishmore, the largest of the legendary Aran Islands and an outpost of Gaelic culture. Soak up the rugged beauty accentuated by miles of dry-stone walls, the thatched roofs of traditional cottages, and prehistoric forts. Learn of the local customs from your knowledgeable guide.

Leave the buzz of Dublin and speed across Ireland on the train heading for Galway and Connemara Airport. After your brief flight across the bay, touch down on Inishmore and prepare to gain insight into traditional Gaelic culture. Take some free time over lunch in Kilronan village to experience life on Inishmore firsthand. Observe how those that live here are preserving their Gaelic values as well as the Irish language (Gaeilge).

Head out to Dún Aengus — a 2,000 year old stone fortress perched on a cliff. Take inspiration from its dramatic location as the powerful Atlantic Ocean crashes into the rock face. Afterward, it’s back to Galway to explore the sights or to perhaps find some retail therapy as you wait for your train back to Dublin.

We booked 6 excursions and this was the only one that was a complete disaster from the start. There is fine print of no refund on this excursions and we had no intentions of ever canceling so we still booked it. Well that fine print is in there because if the merchant cancels the trip you still don’t get a refund. This sounds like it would of been an amazing excursions and the almost $400 for my husband and I to go was well worth it, however what we got was a bus trip to an Abby instead because the weather was not optional for the flight. The people on the bus tour only paid 30 Euros for this excursions. To say I was disappointed and upset when the day was over is an understatement.
