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 continuing on to Cong Village where you can visit the ruins of the Old Abbey or take a walk through Cong Woods to see the old Guinness home that is now the opulent 5-star Ashford Castle or simply enjoy a coffee on the location of the Quiet Man Movie.
Entering the wilderness of Connemara on the Lough Nafooey route allows you to see the stark beauty of the hidden valleys of Connemara before arriving at the Atlantic Ocean and the famed Killary Fjord (for hostellers there is an option to hop-off at the Connemara Hostel). The tour then continues to Kylemore Abbey and back home via the Inagh Valley. The stop at Kylemore Abbey (almost 2 hrs) is ample time for lunch & sightseeing & discounted entrance tickets to the Abbey & gardens are available from the tour driver on the day. This tour has consistently rated as No. 1 Tour out of Galway for 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011 on Tripadvisor.com and is our No.1 recommendation!
