Connemara Day Trip from Dublin Including 1.5-Hour Boat Cruise
Visit Connemara in a single day without the hassle of renting a car during this tour from Dublin. Ride in a luxury coach through the Irish countryside and enjoy the chance to focus on the scenery while your driver takes care of navigation and directions. Highlights include a cruise around Killary Harbour (or a visit to a Killary sheep farm during the winter), the Glengowla Mines, and views of the Twelve Bens mountains.
What to Expect
Make your way to a central Dublin location to step aboard your luxury coach. Find a comfortable seat and take off through the scenic countryside, bound for Galway. You won't have to worry about Dublin traffic or navigating the highways; you can just focus on the scenery. 

Summer tours include a cruise around the Killary Fjord, while winter tours include a visit to a sheep farm in Killary.

Travel on through the Inagh Valley to Kylemore Abbey, where you will learn about the Benedictine monastery's rich history through your guide's commentary before stopping at Glengowla Mines, where you can learn about the country's silver-mining practices.

Return to Dublin for drop-off, having learned all about this area of the country.
