We'll take the scenic coast road along the coast of Galway Bay where we'll see the Burren and the Aran Islands unfold. Passing through Spiddeal, our first stop is at Standun's sweater and souvenir shop for coffee and refreshment. The tour then heads down to the Deserted Famine Village, an area heavily populated before the Great Famine. Travelling through Connemara's rugged landscape, the stacks of turf, the Connemara ponies and the crannogs begin to unfold. Arriving at Maamcross, the replica of "The Quiet Man Cottage" starring John Wayne, which was filmed near here, can be seen.

Entering Connemara, appreciate the wild beauty of the rising mountains and the vast open, breath-taking spaces in the Maam Valley - a spectacular region that divides up the Maamturk mountains of Connemara. Going down into the village of Leenane where the film "The Field" directed by John B. Keane was filmed, Killary Fjord (Ireland's only fjord) unfolds. See the salmon and mussel pots floating on the surface of the water where the fish are farmed.

Our next stop is at Kylemore Abbey and Gardens, where you can absorb the tranquil atmosphere while walking in one of Ireland's most peaceful and scenic areas. This is also the lunch stop of the tour.

We head back to Galway by the Inagh Valleyan Area. The lakes of Inagh are rich for fishing and pretty to look at, with the twelve Bens mountains in the backdrop. Travelling back along the main N59 Galway to Clifden road, the tour follows the leafy banks of Lough Corribin by the village of Oughterard, often referred to as "the gateway to Connemara."
