Immerse yourself in a real Irish cultural experience! Hear stories of local families, see traditional thatched roof cottages, and learn some Gaelic phrases! As you travel through Connemara, be inspired by the open, vast skies, majestic mountains, golden beaches, and sandy lakes. You'll be warmly welcomed by the quaint villages tucked between the mountains!

As you travel from Galway, listen to your expert driver/guide share the origin of the Irish language and how it is still the native language of Connemara, despite its diminishing status in the rest of Ireland. Exit the coach to visit iconic Irish landmarks independently and discover rivers and lakes that flow off The Twelve Pins Mountain Range to naturally shape this majestic region.

Extravagantly placed on a lake in the midst of the mountains, the Kylemore Abbey is a must-see when visiting the West of Ireland. Travel among the Twelve Pins mountain range and glassy lakes throughout Connemara en route to this 19th century abbey.
