Nice, bad time management

If you're prone to travel sickness, then this tour is not for you - on the drive through Torf the bus swayed and jumped up and down the whole time. The time management was sadly not very good, the first big stop (30 min) was a small village, not enough time to see the museum there, but these 30 mins meant that much less at Kilmore Abbey, and not the promised 1 hour and a half, especially if you want to eat something there. You don't really get to see the surrounding landscape either. We didn't see the bay of Galway at all because of a closure and were an hour and a half too early at the station, without any service.
