Itinerary

Day 1Pickup from Dublin airport and transfer to our hotel in the Dublin area

You will be met at Dublin airport for your transfer to the overnight hotel in the Dublin area. Check-in at the hotel is normally available from 2pm. Please arrive in time for dinner which is served at around 6pm.

Day 2Galway & Castlebar

Leaving our hotel, we head across to Galway, a thriving, cosmopolitan city with the added bonus of a seaside setting. We enjoy a guided city tour with our tour manager, followed by free time to explore the city, which has been named as the European Capital of Culture for 2020!

Later we continue to Castlebar where we check in to our hotel for the next three nights.

Day 3Glen Keen Sheep Farm, Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Garden & Connemara

We start the day at Glen Keen Sheep Farm, one of Ireland’s largest sheep farms located on the Wild Atlantic Way, with a spectacular backdrop of mountains. We enjoy a sheep herding demonstration followed by tea, coffee and scones.

Next is Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Garden. We visit the restored rooms of the beautiful Gothic Abbey, home to a monastic community of nuns since 1920, and explore the six acre Victorian Walled Garden where only flower and vegetable varieties from that era are grown. This was one of the last walled gardens built in Ireland during the Victorian period, and its magnificence at the time was compared to London’s Kew Gardens.

Finally we explore the scenic mountains, bogs, heaths, grasslands and woodlands that make up the Connemara National Park. Covering around 3,000 hectares of scenic countryside, the park is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna including the famous Connemara ponies.

Day 4Westport House and Gardens & Achill Island

After spending some free time in the picturesque town of Westport, we visit Westport House and Gardens. This beautiful historic house has been home to the Browne family for over 300 years and is full of original antiques and artwork. With over 30 rooms on show, we can discover what life was like here through the centuries. The house enjoys a superb parkland setting with a lake, terraces, wonderful gardens and magnificent views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

We end the day with a scenic drive around Achill Island, the largest of Ireland’s offshore Islands.
The island’s striking natural beauty and rugged landscapes feature spectacular mountains, remote lakes, soaring cliffs and secluded beaches. First inhabited 5,000 years ago, the island is peppered with ancient forts, historic churches and megalithic tombs.

Day 5Dublin

Checking out of our hotel, we travel to Dublin where we spend an afternoon at leisure. There are plenty of historic sites and iconic monuments to see from the oldest, Dublin Castle, to one of the newest, the Spire of Dublin. We also have the option to join a locally guided tour of the city ($16pp) before spending the night in our hotel in the Dublin area.

Day 6Transfer to Dublin airport

You will be picked up from your overnight hotel and transferred to Dublin airport for your flight home.

Accommodation

The 3-star Breaffy Woods Hotel is situated in 90 acres of woodland estate just outside the town of Castlebar. The en-suite rooms feature complimentary Wi-Fi, satellite TV and tea and coffee-making facilities. The hotel also features a bar and restaurant plus an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, gym and spa (spa treatments at extra cost).

We also spend the first and last night of our stay at a conveniently located 3-star hotel in the Dublin area.
