Description

Your Dublin to Galway adventure begins with a comfortable pickup at your preferred location in the city. Start the day right with a visit to the Kilbeggan Distillery, where the scent of barley and the warmth of Irish whiskey welcome you. Explore this historic distillery, delve into the secrets of whiskey-making, and perhaps enjoy a sample of its finest. Next, we journey towards Athlone, a charming town nestled along the River Shannon. Here, step back in time at Sean's Pub, boasting the title of Ireland's oldest pub. Soak in the centuries-old atmosphere, enjoy a delicious lunch, and raise a pint in a place where history hangs in the air. Continue onward to the ancient monastic settlement of Clonmacnoise, where weathered ruins and towering crosses transport you back in time. Explore the atmospheric cathedral, the whispering graveyard, and marvel at the intricate carvings that have survived the centuries. Your driver-guide will share tales of saints and scholars who walked these very paths. As we travel westward, glimpses of the wild Connemara landscape might appear on the horizon, a taste of the beauty awaiting you in Galway. Keep your eyes peeled for views of the iconic Croagh Patrick mountain, a place of pilgrimage for centuries. Finally, we reach Galway, where you'll be dropped off at your accommodation. It's a day to remember, filled with a perfect blend of whiskey, history, and the unique charm of Ireland's oldest pub!
