The Connemara & Cong Tour departs daily at 10:00am from the new Galway Coach Station, Fairgreen Rd (FREE collections available for all Galway City Hotels, Hostels & Guesthouses - call 091-566566). To see the hidden Ireland off the main tourist track this tour is a must with the first stop at Ross Errily Friary- a hidden but atmospheric 14th century monastery before entering Cong Village where you have time to explore Cong Woods to see Ashford Castle or stroll the town famous for being the location for the 1950s classic movie, 'The Quiet Man'- or simply have a coffee on the edge of Lough Corrib- the largest lake in the Republic of Ireland.
Entering Connemara on the Lough Nafooey route allows you to see the stark beauty of the hidden valley of Connemara before arriving at the Atlantic Ocean and for hostellers there is an option to hop-off at Sleepzone Connemara. The tour then continues to Kylemore Abbey where we break for lunch and sightseeing for 1 hr 45 mins. Entrance into Kylemore Abbey & Gardens is not included in the tour price and is an optional fee. Leaving Kylemore late afternoon we driver through the Inagh Valley, Maam Cross & Oughterard and complete the circuit of Lough Corrib before arriving home to Galway City.
A truly magical day out in typical Irish countryside- let us bring it to life and inform you of the many legends from killer sheep to lake monsters!
