Itinerary

6:30 am: 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 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 breath-taking surroundings.

10:00 am: KILLARY SHEEP FARM

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 Harbour. 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 sheepdog demonstration.

12:00 pm: 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.

1:30 pm: INAGH VALLEY

Drive through the stunning Inagh Valley.

3:15 pm: VISIT GALWAY CITY

Discover the Bohemian city of Galway. It is renowned for its brightly painted pubs, live music and cafés. Galway is a city steeped in history, explore the meandering streets and listen to the many street performers from around the world who call this city their home. Remnants of the medieval town walls lie between shops selling Aran sweaters, handcrafted Claddagh rings, and stacks of second-hand and new books. This “City of Tribes” will sure to be a highlight of your day tour!

7:30 pm: ARRIVE BACK IN DUBLIN
