Galway to Connemara

This busy day, full of ever-changing landscapes, begins with a walk though the woods, into the picturesque village of Cong, with its historic Abbey. After our visit, we’ll explore and enjoy lunch in the heritage town of Westport, situated in the shadow of Ireland’s holy mountain - Croagh Patrick. Afterwards, we head out along the shoreline of stunning Clew Bay, learning of the Pirate queen Gráinne Ní Mháille as we travel towards magnificent Connemara, with its dramatic valleys and magical landscapes. Here, you'll have the option to walk or pedal the stunningly desolate Doolough Valley, studded with dark lakes and overhanging waterfalls, on the way to Killary Fjord. We spend the remainder of the day with a visit to the Gothic fantasy of Kylemore Abbey, shimmering in its lakeside setting, where you can explore the magnificent castle, Gothic church and Victorian gardens.
