DescriptionDepart from the Molly Malone Statue in Dublin early in the morning and head towards Oughterard, the gateway to Connemara. Pass through quaint villages, with unparalleled views. Pass through Maam Cross, where you will get your first glimpse of one of the numerous lakes that make Connemara so famous. The area is a gaeltacht region where the locals speak Irish, so you may have to learn a few words on your journey! Drive past the Maumturk Mountains and the magnificent Glencoaghan Horseshoe of the Twelve Bens Mountain range, one of Ireland's famous hiking routes. During the high season (April - October) this tour includes a 1.5-hour boat cruise around Killary harbour. During the low season (November - March) the boat cruise does not run but instead you will visit the Killary Sheep Farm. You will be given a skilled sheepdog demonstration and told about how the people and the livestock cope with the barren land and the harsh weather. You will also be given a demonstration on Turf cutting. Maybe turn a sod yourself! The next stop is to Kylemore Abbey, said to be one of the most romantic castles in Ireland. Here you can get some photos of this amazing setting and relax for some lunch (not included). Your final stop before returning to Dublin is Galway city, where you will have 1 hour 15 minutes to explore the city. Enjoy the lively atmosphere, visit the Cladagh ring museum and have a stroll through the famous Spainish arch.
