We liked all the stops and all the beautiful landscapes. Unfortunately we didnt like the tour guide that much, he was too much of a joker.
Take the pain out of exploring Connemara on this full-day coach tour. The cunning route takes in some of the region’s most scenic mountains, lakes, and valleys with stops at medieval Ross Errilly Friary, Victorian Kylemore Abbey, and the charming village of Cong. Perfect for lovers of architecture and landscape, your local guide explains everything you see.
Board your bus at Galway Coach Station and head out into the Irish countryside. Your first stop is the medieval tombs and serene cloisters of ancient Ross Errilly Friary. Next, explore the cobbled streets of quaint Cong village on the banks of Lough Corrib, and perhaps take the time to look at 13th-century Ashford Castle, now a hotel.
As you cross the border into County Connemara and travel around glacier lake Loch Na Fooey, your guide shares rich tales of Irish culture and traditions. Admire Kylemore Abbey, a spectacular lakeside edifice built during Victorian times, before returning to Galway by way of the Inagh Valley and Maumturk Mountains. Bid your guide farewell at the station.
