Connemara Tour

  • Approximate Cost: $89 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 8 hours
  • Location: Connemara, County Galway, Ireland
  • When: Full-day tour

The raw beauty, sweeping vistas, and constantly changing moods of the Connemara landscape have captured the hearts and minds of generations of artists, writers, and musicians. Set out this morning for Ashford Castle, where you stop for tea and scones. Afterward, drive to stately Kylemore Abbey via the Killary Harbor fjord. The scenery is spectacular en route — described by author Oscar Wilde as having “a savage beauty” for its patchwork of lakes, rugged mountains, and windswept bogs. Visit the abbey, its miniature gothic cathedral, and the Victorian gardens. Pause for lunch on your own in the abbey’s café.

Dingle Peninsula Tour

  • Approximate Cost: $89 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 7 hours
  • Location: Killarney, Ireland
  • When: Full-day tour, including lunch

Enhance your Ireland travel itinerary with a visit to the rugged Dingle Peninsula. You'll drive through the market town of Tralee en route, known for its annual Rose of Tralee contest. From there, head to the town of Dingle, the chief port of Kerry in the old Spanish trading days, and fortified during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. There is time to explore the charming fishing town on your own before an included lunch in a local pub. Your tour then takes you to the Dingle Peninsula, a place of intense allure, with green landscapes, rocky hills, long, sandy beaches, and staggering cliff edges. From Slea Head, you can see the Blasket Islands, the farthest outposts of Europe. These remote islands are steeped in history, mythology, and traditional Irish culture. The tip of the peninsula is a stronghold of the Irish language, where many traditions and customs have been preserved.

In the afternoon, visit the Blasket Center, a fascinating heritage center and museum that honors the unique community who lived on the remote Blasket Islands until their evacuation in 1953. Learn about the lifestyle of the island people through exhibits, interactive displays, artifacts, artwork, and audio-visual presentations.
