Overview of your Galway tour:

Connemara is a place of "savage beauty" as the great Oscar Wilde described. Located in the northwest corner of County Galway, it's an area of desolate aesthetics, incredible scenery and some interesting attractions, which combined make Connemara a beautiful location close to the hearts of Irish people & visitors alike. When I arrived here 25 years ago, I instantly fell in love. I know this place inside out, like my own side pockets. The rough landscape of the Maamturk Mountains, the imposing Twelve Bens, the scenic drives of Killary Fjord and the Sky Road of Clifden are only a glimmer of what this magnificent place offers. From the majestic Lough Corrib with its thousands of little islands, to the historic Kylemore Abbey known for love & heartbreak, plus Aughnanure Castle, home of the ferocious O'Flahertys, all of these places have a story to tell and it'll be my pleasure to tell it to you. In addition, local pubs will have their doors open to enjoy fresh pints & tasty local food. Join me on this ride!
