At Wild Atlantic Way Day Tours we offer regular day trips from Galway to Connemara. At Wild Atlantic Way Day Tours we offer day tours and packaged tours available individually or as a part of a group.
Connemara in County Galway is a rugged landscape on the western edge of Europe, where Gaelic, the traditional language of Ireland, is still in widespread use. Connemara Ponies were bred to adapt to the harsh surroundings and pony trekking is a popular activity among locals and tourists alike.
After trekking on a Connemara beach such as Omey Island, why not enjoy a pint and some lovely seafood from Sweeney’s Bar in Claddaghduff. After this a tour of the local countryside is a must, nestled between the Twelve Bens and the Atlantic Ocean, Clifden offers numerous outstanding choices for accommodation. Explore the authentic restoration of Clifden’s railway station, station platform and engine house at the Clifden Station House Hotel, a distinctive combination of history and hospitality, with onsite dining and theatre.
Located just outside Clifden on the steep Sky Road, The Abbeyglen Castle Hotel provides a relaxing base for those wanting to explore all that Connemara has to offer. Step out on the terrace to view the beautiful sight of Clifden Bay, or marvel at the haunting wilderness of the Twelve Bens mountain range. The tranquil setting of Ballynahinch Castle, on the banks of one of Ireland’s leading salmon and sea trout rivers, offers equally majestic sights for visitors who wish to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Connemara, with fly-fishing, hiking, biking and shooting available onsite.
No Connemara day tour from Galway is complete without a trip to the Benedictine monastery at Kylemore Abbey, where visitors can tour the monastery and castle, explore the walled gardens, or take a guided mountain hike. For something different while in the area, see how sheepdogs are trained to shepherd Connemara Blackface sheep around the wild terrain in Joyce Country.
