Luxury, privately guided and chauffeured day tours from Ashford Castle to Cliffs of Moher, Kylemore Abbey & More


This two day, professionally driven and guided, luxury tour is just the ticket and two of the best day tours you can take from your base accommodation at Ashford Castle or surrounding areas. Your tours will cover two very different landscapes, both offering a uniquely Irish touring experience. From the bare limestone of the Burren to the vertical awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher await. You'll find Connemara, a great peat land and Kylemore Abbey one of the most tranquil, beautiful, peaceful places in all of Ireland.

Your private, two day tour allows you to explore the charming village of Cong, home to all time classic movie, The Quiet Man, starring John Wayne and take in the wild views over the Aran Islands and the Atlantic from the shoreline. Sit back and relax, while we travel the softly winding roads along the great Lough Corrib. A one-of-a-kind tour of the West of Ireland awaits on "Your Tour - Your Trail"

Itinerary

Your tour begins with timely pick up from your accommodation. We'll follow the route to The Burren in County Clare, visiting Poulnabrone and making our way slowly to the imposing Cliffs of Moher. Lunch can be taken in a music lovers delight, the village of Doolin. Our afternoon will take us along the coastal road know as the Black Head with magnificent views. Your first, privately guided day ends at your accommodation for the evening.

The following morning, we'll get day two underway from your accommodation. You'll sit back and relax in luxurious comfort and style, letting me worry about the driving enroute to Connemara. Upon arrival, explore the peat bogs of Ireland. Then, onward to Kylemore Abbey to enjoy lunch and a visit to the Abbey. After lunch, we make our way to the charming Village of Cong, taking a short woodland walk to view the Ashford estate and some locations from the great '52 movie, The Quiet Man, staring John Wayne & Maureen O'Hara. Your second day ends at your Galway accommodation.

A Recent Review of this tour

Gerard was a wonderful guide! He was always prompt and made sure we always knew exactly when and where we were going and meeting him. He showed us all the places we were expecting and several smaller places we found beautiful and interesting like the perfumery and Finian's Well. He answered all our questions and showed us a great time watching hurling. We had two wonderful days learning and laughing with a very nice gentleman!
