Connemara Day Trip from Dublin

Dublin – Connemara National Park – Dublin

Join us on a stunning day trip from Dublin to Connemara National Park, the wild west of Ireland, with its lakes, mountains and bogs, where the traditions of yesteryear are still very much a part of daily life.

In the summertime (April – October), we’ll take a 90 minute sightseeing cruise on the Killary, Ireland’s only fjord, where you can listen to the history of the area, eat lunch or sip an Irish Coffee in the warm and spacious viewing lounge of the Connemara Lady. Otherwise you can stand outside, braving the elements, while enjoying the panoramic views Mother Nature offers.

Private Connemara Day Tour

In the wintertime (November – March), we’ll visit a traditional farm that hosts approximately 200 ewes and lambs that roam freely across the fjord. These herds of Scottish blackhead sheep – the lone wanderers of the bogs – are best suited to survive in the harsh mountain conditions.

Farmer Tom Nee will show you how you herd them with sheepdogs, and you will have the unique opportunity to observe turf being cut fresh from the land, maybe trying it out yourself?

Our next stop is to Kylemore Abbey, said to be one of the most romantic castles in Ireland. Here you can get some photos of this amazing setting and relax for some lunch (not included). Afterwards we visit the intriguing Glengowla silver mines which were abandoned in 1865 and is now run as a museum and a fascinating insight into life back then.

You’ll arrive back in Dublin at around 7:00pm – after a comfort break on the way.
