A perfect day, nothing else to say ! Michael is just a great guide, and the stops allowed us to admire many different landscapes. Anyway, a great day.
Save money on rental car and attraction entrance fees with this Connemara tour that focuses on free-to-enter sights such as villages—although you’ll likely want to pay extra to visit Kylemore Abbey. Experience the villages of Leenane and Irish-speaking Spiddal, stop for photos at Killary Fjord, and soak up Connemara’s sweeping landscapes as your local driver/guide explains it all.
Meet your coach in Galway city center or at your central hotel and learn about Connemara culture and the many movies that have filmed there from your friendly local guide. Your first stop is mountainside Leenane village, the setting of 1990’s film The Field, followed by Ireland’s only fjord, Killary Fjord.
Next, stop at Kylemore Abbey, a 19th-century castle set on a pretty lake surrounded by mountains. Today, it’s home to Benedictine nuns and award-winning Victorian walled gardens. From here, visit Spiddal, an Irish-speaking village where thatched cottages look onto the beach and North Atlantic Ocean. At the end of the tour, the coach will drop you in the city center.
