Connemara Day Tour - Extreme Ireland

Taking a scenic route to Oughterard, the 'The Gateway to Connemara', you will pass through many quaint towns and enjoy beautiful scenery before you enter the national park, which has no boundary lines but is marked by its truly outstanding beauty and panoramic, unspoiled views.

During the high season (April - October) this tour includes a 1.5hr boat cruise around Killary harbour.

During the low season (November - March) the boat cruise does not run but instead you will visit the Killary Sheep Farm. You will be given a skilled sheepdog demonstration and told about how the people and the livestock cope with the barren land and the harsh weather. You will also be given a demonstration on Turf cutting. Maybe turn a sod yourself.

Your next stop is to Kylemore Abbey, said to be one of the most romantic castles in Ireland. Here you can get some photos of this amazing setting and relax for some lunch (not included).

Afterwards you will visit the intriguing Glengowla Silver Mines, which were abandoned in 1865 and now run as a museum and a fascinating insight into life back then.

You then set out on your way back to Dublin and reminisce about your adventure to Ireland’s wild west.
