Description

This full-day excursion to Connemara and Cong takes you to see the hidden Ireland that’s off the main tourist route. This is a magical day spent in typical Irish countryside. See the region come to life with stories from the past and its many legends - from killer sheep to lake monsters! The first stop is at Ross Errily Friary. This hidden 14th-century monastery is located just outside the village of Cong. You’ll have time to explore Cong Woods and see Ashford Castle, or just stroll through the town that was the setting for the 1950s classic film “The Quiet Man”. As you enter Connemara, you’ll see Lough Nafooey, known as Ireland’s most haunted lake. You’ll note the stark beauty of Connemara as you continue on your route, arriving at Killary Fjord in Leenane. Those staying in hostels can opt to hop off at Sleepzone Connemara - just let the tour operator know in advance! Head back inland and drive to Kylemore Abbey, where you'll have a break for lunch and sightseeing. There is an optional tour of the Kylemore Abbey and Gardens, this is not included in the tour price, but available for an additional fee. This is a discounted fee which is available to customers and the cheapest entrance rate available. After leaving Kylemore, drive through the Inagh Valley to Maam Cross, and Oughterard, completing the circuit of Lough Corrib before arriving back in Galway City at the end of your tour.
