This was an all day trip and our driver/guide was Michael. He could tell you something about every place we drove through. He was very cheerful and informative. The Abbey was beautiful and the gardens were too.
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.

We booked this after getting to Ireland and the staff were very helpful, bus picked us up at our hotel and we had a lovely day despite the weather. Michael, our guide, was very friendly, informative and accommodating. We highly recommend it.
We had a great day travelling with Lally Tours and with Michael as our guide and driver, he was very informative and humorous through the whole trip and we had really enjoyed ourselves! I would recommend this tour to anybody! Thank you! Kristijan & Tina
