Cliffs of Moher Tour
Taking you along Galway Bay, your first stop is at the fishing village of Kinvara to see Dunguaire Castle & into The Burren- home to 75% of Ireland's native flora & location of numerous ancient monuments many of which we visit including the Gleninsheen Wedge Tomb, the 5,800 year old Poulnabrone Dolmen and Ballyalban Fairy Fort- home of little men with green hats and orange beards!
Stopping also at Kilfenora to see the famous Celtic Crosses (Irish High Crosses), we make our way to the 200-metre high, 8kms long Cliffs of Moher.
The Connemara & Cong Tour departs daily at 10am from the coach station in Galway City. To see the hidden Ireland off the main tourist track this tour is a must with the first stop at Ross Errily Friary- a hidden but atmospheric 14th century monastery before entering Cong Village for a guided walk through Cong Woods to see Ashford Castle.
Entering Connemara on the Lough Nafooey route allows you to see the stark beauty of the hidden valley of Connemara before arriving at the Atlantic Ocean and for hostellers there is an option to hop-off at Sleepzone Connemara. The tour then continues to Kylemore Abbey (or Connemara National Park for walkers) and back home via the Inagh Valley.
A trip to the Aran Islands is an ideal tonic to escape the pressures of modern life. If you are looking for a place to commune with nature, be inspired and find peace to envelop body & soul, look no further.
Whether you wish to bask on sandy beaches, sailboard, or just walk the quiet winding byways, the Aran Islands have it all.
