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.

Martin our driver and guide gave a fantastic tour through Connemara. Despite the rain he was still able to give us a sense of the area. The Abbey was a highlight of the tour. I would highly recommend it.
