We continue our drive to the west where we shall enjoy a tour of Connemara taking in the sights of Cong, Lough Corrib, and the remote valleys of Connemara. Connemara is considered to be one of the most beautiful wildernesses in Europe, this is the true rugged beauty of Ireland you have come to see!

Day 2: Galway - Cliffs of Moher - Dublin
After a relaxing morning and a hearty breakfast, we will pick you up at 10 am from your accommodation and begin our day driving around marvelous Galway Bay, famed in song and story. Our first stop is the fascinating lunar landscape of the Burren. This site is a true geological and botanical wonder, as it is the only place on Earth where Mediterranean, Artic and Alpine flora grow side by side. We continue our adventure and make a short photo stop at the majestic Corcomroe Abbey. Located in the north of the Burren region of County Clare, Corcomroe Abbey is an early 13th-century Cistercian monastery. The abbey is noted for its detailed carvings and other rich ornamentation, which are not commonly found in structures from this period. The Wild Atlantic Way takes us to Ireland't number one site - Cliffs of Moher. Rising 120 metres (390 ft) above the Atlantic Ocean, the Cliffs give you a fantastic view of the Aran Islands in Galway Bay, the Maumturks and Twelve Pins mountain ranges to the north in County Galway, and Loop Head to the south. You will spend 1.5 h at this site of nature's beauty. We continue our drive and make a last photo stop at Bunratty Castle, 15th century tower house in County Clare, Ireland. We return to Dublin at approximately 20:00 with memories that will truly last a lifetime as this past 2 days have been an inspiring insight to the beauty that is Ireland.
The Irish economy has by now recovered from the pandemic and there is full employment in the country. However, many drivers left the tourism industry during the lockdowns and there is consequently a shortage of chauffeurs.
Also, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine on Europe's Eastern border is leading to shortages and price increases throughout Europe. Although Ireland is on Europe's western edge, far from the fighting, we have not been immune to the related inflation.
European gasoline prices are increasing and hotels and B&Bs in many regional towns are already full through the first half of 2023 as the Irish government hosts tens of thousands of women and children refugees from the conflict.
With these factors in mind, we recommend placing a deposit to fix your tour price as soon as you have decided upon dates - as prices are likely to rise in the coming months.
Please don't hesitate to ask about our competitive deposit and cancellation terms.
