Connemara and Cong Day Tour

Led by an experienced and entertaining driver-guide you will be transported into the heart of Ireland’s last wilderness, the beautiful Connemara region. Taking our time to explain and enjoy the varied landscape that unfolds throughout the day, we make numerous stops, not least at Clifden Town - the capital of Connemara, where we make a welcome coffee stop before calling to Kylemore Abbey - "Ireland’s most romantic building". Kylemore Abbey, an idyllic getaway for a previous owner is now the monastic home to the Benedictine Order of Nuns in Ireland.
After lunch we travel through some of the most beautiful areas in Ireland as we pass by the natural harbour that is Killary fjord that straddles the Mayo-Galway border and the scenic village of Leenane, famous for its appearance in the Hollywood movie, "The Field".
The Galway Tour Company is the only company that take you from here to the beautiful village of Cong, home to Cong Abbey and the setting for the John Ford movie, "The Quiet Man" in 1952, where we give you time to get acquainted with the local sights before returning to Galway City with memories of a fantastic day in Connemara!
