Explore the real West of Ireland on this 8 day tour of Galway and Mayo taking in two of the real gems of the West, Westport town and Galway city.
Westport in Co. Mayo nestles in the shadow of Croagh Patrick, one of Europe’s best known places of Pilgrimage. Few towns can match Westport’s charisma or appealing continental flavour, cheerful, multi-coloured shop fronts jostle for attention along with a bewildering array of pubs, shops, cafes and restaurants. Two real must see destinations in this area are Westport House and Kylemore Abbey or cross the bridge to Achill Island and explore its magnificent sandy beaches.
For a real cosmopolitan feel, Galway City is a chilled-out destination with traditional pubs, buskers, street theatre and quirky shops. Galway has quiet roads making it very easy for you to explore this region in your own car - known as ‘Connemara’ with the 12 Bens Mountain range providing a wonderful backdrop or drive the Sky Road from Clifden. With its combination of awe-inspiring scenery, fascinating heritage and warm welcome, the west coast of Ireland won’t fail to impress.
