Depart from a central Dublin location in a luxury, air-conditioned coach destined for the beautiful Connemara region. Allow your guide to share intimate knowledge of the region as you travel through spectacular Irish countryside. See herds of wild ponies grazing in verdant fields and watch the surfaces of lakes shimmer in the shadow of the Twelve Bens mountains.
In summertime, enjoy a tranquil cruise around the Killary Fjord; marvel at the ubiquitous mussel beds as you gaze at the sky-skimming spire of Mweelrea, the highest mountain on the west coast of Ireland. In wintertime, skip the cruise and visit a Killary sheep farm instead.
Continue through the delightful Inagh Valley to Kylemore Abbey, a former Benedictine monastery shrouded in rich history. Admire the distinctive façade of one of Ireland’s most popular tourists attractions and capture photographs of the spectacular natural surroundings. Next, stop by the Glengowla Silver Mines to learn about the silver mines.
We then set on our way back to Dublin and reminisce about our adventure to Ireland’s Wild West.
