Your journey at a glance

Devastated by the potato famine of 1847-1851, the region's landscape remains barren and unspoiled with haunting natural beauty apparent as far as the eye can see. Fresh Atlantic air bathes the region, which enjoys a slow pace of life - in keeping with way of the charming locals. Don't be surprised if you find yourself being greeted in Gaelic - Connemara is one of the few regions in Ireland which has retained our native language. When you choose to experience Galway and Connemara with Elegant Irish Tours – you'll be choosing a level of service and luxury that is unmatched elsewhere on the Irish market.
  • Departure

    Your private-hire vehicle and knowledgeable, local guide will collect you from your chosen Dublin location. You'll commence your westward journey, factoring in a refreshment stop en route.

  • Cong, in Co. Mayo

    Your first stop on the west coast will be in the tiny village of Cong, in Co. Mayo - perhaps most famous as the location of the 1952 Hollywood blockbuster 'The Quiet Man'. Cong is the quintessential 'rural Irish village' - home to castles of the medieval era, meandering brooks and incredible lake views. We enjoy a tour of the ancient ruin of Cong Abbey, originally constructed as far back as the 7th century. Enjoy a traditional Irish lunch in Cong, before continuing on your journey.

  • Lough Corrib

    Our next visit is to 'Lough Corrib' - Ireland's second largest lake. Over 350 islands break the lake and are home to various types of rural Irish wildlife.

  • Connemara - Galway Bay

    You'll continue driving through the Connemara landscape - taking in the mesmerizing and deserted mountainous terrain. Driving through the Maam Valley, amidst the Connemara lakes and Twelve Pins mountain range – we'll make our way along Galway Bay as far as the enchanting Atlantic-side village of Spiddal. Breathe in the fresh sea air - you are officially standing on one of the westernmost points of Europe - the next stop is Newfoundland!

  • Galway

    Back in your luxury vehicle - a very short drive will take you into the center of Galway - 'The city of the Tribes'. A bohemian and arty city, Galway is in the running to claim the title of 'European Capital of Culture 2020' - a short walk through these enchanting streets and we're sure you will agree that the title would be well deserved. Galway is home to some of the country's finest traditional musicians – many of whom showcase their talents along the city's winding streets. Highlights to explore in Galway include St. Nicholas' Cathedral, the bustling Shop Street and the Spanish Arch - or simply sit down to enjoy a pint of the 'black stuff' and some world-famous Galway oysters.

  • Return to Dublin

    With this fantastic day tour coming to an end, its time to make yourself comfortable on your luxury 2.5 hour transfer back to Dublin City.
