Connemara to The Aran Islands

We begin our day with a visit to Ireland's only fjord, where you can either walk the ancient Famine track along the shore, or opt to kayak in its pristine waters. Following our activities, we’ll enjoy a scenic drive through the lonesome Inagh Valley (or, if you have the energy, it makes for a stunning cycle!) towards the south Connemara coastline, where we take to the waves for a boat ride out across Galway Bay to the magical Aran Islands. Unlike most tourists, we’ll spend the night on Inis Mor, immersed in the community of the island. As the tourist boat sets sail from the harbour in the late afternoon, we’ll explore the vast web of stone walls and ancient ruins on bike and foot, experiencing the timelessness of island life. Tonight, we’ll stay amongst the community, in local guest houses, and go in search of traditional music in one of Inis Mor’s three pubs.
