Highlights
  • Save time and money with a comprehensive, great-value Connemara coach tour
  • Stop at Killary Fjord, Kylemore Abbey, and Leenane and Spiddal villages
  • Learn about Irish culture and nature from your local driver/guide
  • Enjoy pickup from Galway city center hotels
What to Expect
Meet your coach in Galway city center or at your central hotel and learn about Connemara culture and the many movies that have filmed there from your friendly local guide. Your first stop is mountainside Leenane village, the setting of 1990’s film The Field, followed by Ireland’s only fjord, Killary Fjord. Next, stop at Kylemore Abbey, a 19th-century castle set on a pretty lake surrounded by mountains. Today, it’s home to Benedictine nuns and award-winning Victorian walled gardens. From here, visit Spiddal, an Irish-speaking village where thatched cottages look onto the beach and North Atlantic Ocean. At the end of the tour, the coach will drop you in the city center.

We had a great trip to Kylemore today with our tour guide Michael. He had so much knowledge on Western Ireland to share with us! The ride was smooth and we stopped frequently for tea and bathroom breaks. The views were beautiful despite a misty and rainy day.

John was our driver for the day and he was full of wonderful information along our route! We enjoyed every single moment! I highly suggest you go off season (the end of October is good) when there are fewer tourists (and no waiting in lines!).

Hi lucytravler, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a mighty 5* review! It is great to visit Connemara all year round but when the weather cooperates in winter, i do not know of many more beautiful places. Thank you once again for your kind words. I will be sure to pass these along to John who will be delighted. Safe travels, Dónal

John was an excellent guide and drive!. His knowledge and love of Ireland came through in every detail he shared. It was so relaxing to not be driving ourselves and we were able to see much more than we would have on our own. I highly recommend this tour and would go on it again
