Full description
Following pickup from Galway, head through the Claddagh and Salthill before going west along the southern shores of Connemara on the Wild Atlantic Way. Pass by woodland, bogs and villages of thatched cottages.

Take a photo stop at the picturesque fishing village of Roundstone before heading back out along the Wild Atlantic Way. Next, stop at Derrigimlagh Bog. Learn about this remote site acting as the center of the communications and aviation world in the beginning of the 20th century.

After traveling through Clifden, head to the exciting Sky Road. Renowned worldwide for its heart-stopping twists and turns, the Sky Road swoops and soars above the Atlantic Ocean.

Next, choose between 2 options: a 3-hour stop to explore and hike in the Connemara National Park or a 3-hour stop at the magical 19th-century limestone and marble Kylemore Abbey.

Finish your tour weaving your way between the majestic Twelve Bens and Maumturk Mountains through the Inagh Valley and onto the main Galway to Clifden Road. Here, admire the impressive Connemara Giant before you visit the famous Quiet Man Bridge and return to Galway.
