Overview
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.
Highlights
  • Save time and money with a comprehensive, great-value Connemara coach tour
  • Stop at Killary Fjord, Kylemore Abbey, and Leenane and Spiddal villages
  • Learn about Irish culture and nature from your local driver/guide
  • Enjoy pickup from Galway city center hotels
What to Expect
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.

John was an excellent guide and drive!. His knowledge and love of Ireland came through in every detail he shared. It was so relaxing to not be driving ourselves and we were able to see much more than we would have on our own. I highly recommend this tour and would go on it again

John, our driver and guide from Lally Tours in Connemara, Ireland on 28 October, certainly eared his pay. As a driver he handled the big tour bus as nimbly as a Smart Car. As a guide he proved himself to be extremely knowledgeable of the Connemara countryside and its people
