ITINERARY - Wild Connemara Tour
6:30am : Depart Dublin
We will meet in front of the Molly Malone Statue located on Suffolk Street (map is available within the link to the booking page). We will begin our exciting journey by crossing the west coast of Ireland toward Connemara. We will take an exceptionally scenic route towards Oughterard, which is considered to be the gateway into Connemara! While passing through charming little towns along the way, you will have the luxury of encountering views that are truly unmatched anywhere else across the land! Any signs or boundaries do not mark Connemara National Park; you will realize you have arrived from the breathtaking surroundings.
10:30am : Killary Boat Cruise
We will travel through the stunning Inagh Valley. “Can you hear me now?” is a well known catch phrase, as the Inagh Valley is a notorious spot for losing mobile phone service. It is a valley filled with stunning mountains and lakes. We pass the little village of Leenane where the movie “The Field” was filmed. Ireland has only one fjord and we are heading straight for it – the Killary Fjord. Marvel at the thriving mussel beds and look out towards Mweelrea, the highest mountain range on the west coast of Ireland. Please note that during the high season (April - October) this tour offers a 1.5-hour boat cruise around Killary Harbor. During the low season (November - March) the boat cruise will not run and instead we will make our way over to the Killary Sheep Farm, a traditional farm that hosts approximately 200 ewes and lambs that roam freely across the fjord. Visitors have the unique opportunity to observe a local farmer performing a skilled sheepdog demonstration.
12:45 : Kylemore Abbey
We will have a photo opportunity at Kylemore Abbey. Once a prestigious female boarding school, but now it hosts nuns on retreat as well as welcoming tourists visiting from around the world! Nestled at the base of the Druchruach Mountains and looking out onto the northern shore of Lough Pollacappal, the sprawling abbey is a sight to behold. It is known as one of the most romantic places in Ireland; a place filled with history.
3:00PM : GLENGOWLA SILVER MINES
we visit the intriguing Glengowla silver mines which were abandoned in 1865 and is now run as a museum and a fascinating insight into life back then.
7:00pm : Arrive back in Dublin
We will arrive back in Dublin after an exciting and unforgettable journey discovering the savage beauty that is Connemara. Your friends will be jealous and will all want to go to the region of Connemara after seeing your beautiful photos.

Connemara day tour
Connemara day tour with our driver/tour guide Rob was great! Rob was very knowledgeable about all the route, very friendly and he even sang two songs. The day tour is just so relaxing and you can forget about all your problems when you are in the middle of the nature. One of the best thing to do is to see the fjord and to go with the boat for one hour. Amazing day!
Conemara day tour with Rob
Fantastic day yesterday towards Conemara. A very well guided tour by Rob along with stunning landscapes and Guinness on a boat ride made our day. Many thanks
“Connemara - Stunning”
We did the Connemara day trip. It was great! I want to visit that place again. Our driver was fantastic - he was nice and friendly. He was even able to deal with the fact that we got stuck behind a triathlon and we were going to be late for the fjord ferry. You get to see a lot in one day and if you're on a tight schedule, these day trips are the best way to see a lot of things and still enjoy your trip.
