Given the unpredictable nature of Ireland’s weather, what we do each day might occasionally vary so that you have the best experience possible.
DAY 1: GALWAY TO CLIFDEN VIA INISHMOR ISLAND TOUR
We jump from mainland Ireland to one of its most renowned island, Inis Mór, meaning big island. It is the largest of three islands that make up the Aran Islands.
Once we arrive on its limestone shores, you can explore by foot or by bike this magnificent landscape that has as many as 50 different monuments of Christian, pre-Christian and Celtic mythological heritage. The most famous of them are Dún Aonghasa, a breathing fort that was built on a high cliff some 100 metres above sea level and Dún Dúchathair (the Black fort) which enjoys a more solitude setting on the cliffs at Cill Éinne, (Killeany ). Some visitors enjoy the solitude of it in contrast with the more busy Dún Aonghasa. The fort consists of a terraced wall surrounding the remains of some early dwelling houses known as Clocháns( stone houses).
DAY 2: CLIFDEN TO GALWAY VIA LEENAUN
This morning you get the chance to catch up on sleep time, enjoy the colourful town of Clifden or if you feel like adventure then why not try out an amazing sea kayak trip exploring the coastline, horse riding along a golden beach or hike to the top of Diamond Hill.
At 2 PM, we commence our journey back east to Galway passing picturesque lakes, Kylemore Abbey, Killary harbour, Ireland’s only fjord and secluded picturesque lakes that line our path to the colourful town of Westport.
