  • Explore this unspoiled region of the Emerald Isle at a leisurely pace, with ample time to discover its ancient landscape, where every rock and furrow tells a story.
  • Taste the salt and seaweed in the air on the Wild Atlantic Way as you follow the dramatic coastline and golden, windswept beaches. 
  • Discover the fascinating history and heritage of Connemara. Choose to visit the preserved landscape of a National Park or the nineteenth century Gothic abbey at Kylemore.
  • Immerse yourself in the ‘craic’, music, song and storytelling of cosy local pubs each evening.

Chloe’s favourite moment:

Cycling across the bridge at Kylemore lake and looking to the right as the trees open up, you catch your first glimpse of the magnificent Kylemore Abbey across the water. It still fills me with awe!
