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.
10:00AM : 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
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.
2:30Pm : Killary Boat Cruise
We will travel through the stunning Inagh Valley. “Can you hear me now?” is a well-known catchphrase, 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.
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.

Fantastic trip to Connemara
Connemara is a must see, for sure. I was planning a one day trip (I only had one day left to spend in a tour), but I really didn't wanted the hassle of having a car and driving so I gladly payed for someone to drive me there. What a great choice! Irish Day Tours has great professionals and they offer a really nice tour. I would gladly recommend them.
Connemara day tour

Day tour to Connemara and Kilmore Abbey
Amazing tour from Dublin all throughout Connemara and eventually to Kilmore Abbey! Guide provided just the right amount of information on the surrounding area and the ride on the boat was amazing. Would definitely recommend!
Tour of Connemara
Rocky was the tour guide for our long day trip from Dublin to Connemara. Rocky did a great job. He explained a lot about Ireland and the Irish people. The scenery was beautiful. We got a boat ride on an Irish fjord where they have aqua farms for mussels and salmon. But just the drive along the mountains, the lakes and the rivers was fantastic. A good tour if you have limited time and a limited budget.
