Overview

***** TRIPADVISOR CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE 2012 - 2019 *****

Connemara is truly the wilderness of Ireland, ravaged during the great potato famine of 1847-1851. this landscape was left barren however its true beauty intact.

With fabulous lakes, romantic castles, stone walls, and deserted valleys Connemara features in many blockbuster movies ie The Quiet Man with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara, and the Guard with Brendan Gleeson.

On this tour we introduce you to this amazing part of Ireland, but also take you to Galway city for a 2 hour stop. Plenty of time to explore the highlights of this traditional, colourful and beautiful tribal city.
