Description

Taking a scenic route to Oughterard, ' The Gateway to Connemara'. We will pass through many quaint towns and enjoy beautiful scenery before we enter the national park, which has no boundary lines but is marked by its truly outstanding beauty and panoramic, unspoiled views.

During the high season ( April - October ) this tour includes a 1.5hr boat cruise around Killary harbour. During the low season ( November - March ) the boat cruise does not run but instead we will visit the Killary Sheep Farm. You will be given a skilled sheepdog demonstration and told about how the people and the livestock cope with the barren land and the harsh weather. You will also be given a demonstration on Turf cutting. Maybe turn a sod yourself!

Our next stop is to Kylemore Abbey, said to be one of the most romantic castles in Ireland. Here you can get some photos of this amazing setting and relax for some lunch ( not included ).

We stop at Inagh Valley and take in some of the most spectacular vistas that Connemara has to offer before we travel to the bohemien city of Galway.

We then set on our way back to Dublin and reminisce about our adventure to Ireland’s wild west.

Wonderful day! Loved the Connemara countryside & the boat trip down the fjord. Shopping & cafes in Galway was fun & full of street music. David was a great driver.

We toured with Extreme Ireland Tours. This is a long day (13 hours), but worth it. The boat trip on the Killary Fjord is an amazing experience. It’s 90 minutes and we had good weather, but the boat has cover if the weather isn’t great (they also have a dining room if you want to eat or have a drink). The Kylemore Abbey is stunning from the lakeshore. But that’s about all. I wasn’t overly impressed, since you can’t actually go inside or walk much of the outside without an admission ticket (this is not included in the tour). Our driver, Declan, was amazing! He made an extra stop for us so we could check out a bog - that was fascinating! He provided us with information throughout the tour, but didn’t talk continuously, which we all appreciated. He was very accommodating for restroom breaks and went over and above to get information for others on the tour. By far he was my favorite driver of this trip (we’ve done 5 other day trips over the last two weeks).

Very enjoyable trip. Connemara was breathtaking. Our guide Rocky brought the countryside to life with his narrative. He even dropped his off at the finish, close to our hotel!
