The windows are slightly tinted with privacy glass to enjoy the beautiful scenery without the glare of the sunshine. The captain seats are individual leather with armrests and reclining options. Vehicles have air conditioning and music players as standard. This is the ideal transportation for a small group on a tour of Ireland.

Day 1

Roundstone, Beaches, Bays & Coastal Tour

The southern shores of Connemara are famous for aqua marine waters, white carribbean style sandy beaches and coastal villages with seafood bars and restaurants. The must see haunts on this tour are the villages of Roundstone with its beautiful Dogs Bay Beach and the quaint villages of Cashel, Carna and Carraroe. This is a breathtaking landscape of epic mountains, deep coves and rugged wildness unmatched elsewhere in Europe.

Ashford Castle Estate Activities & Cong

On completion of the day touring you may take the afternoon at leisure on the grounds of the castle where multiple activities such as falconry, clay pigeon shooting and horse riding / walks are available on request. It is recommended to take a boat ride on Lough Corrib and perhaps stop on the Island of St.Patrick to view the ruins of an ancient monastery.There is often evening entertainment available in the Dungeon Bar at Ashford Castle.


Day 2

Connemara, Sky Road and Kylemore Valley

In the morning we will head west of Galway and the beautiful Connemara landscape which is rugged and dramatic as sheep overtake cows as the main curious onlookers. After the trail we will continue through Leenane village where the movie "The Field" was filmed. You will visit Kylemore Abbey, the only home of the Benedictine nuns in Ireland. We will travel through Letterfrack, and the coastline taking the Sky Road back to Clifden.

Westport, Clew Bay & Croagh Patrick Tour

Westport is one of Irelands most beautiful, vibrant and beloved coastal towns. The design of the town is symmetrical, designed by the eminent British architect James Wyatt. The flow off the town is wonderful for strolling through the streets enjoying the ambiance, the music and the culture of this popular destination. On the edge of town dominating the skyline is Croagh Patrick, Irelands Holy Mountain which is a popular hiking and pilgrimage trail. Westport House is a fine Palladian mansion with gardens, tours and excellent picnic areas to enjoy the panoramas over the bay.

Day 3

West Clare, Cliffs of Moher & Burren

West Clare is among Irelands most rugged and dramatic landscapes with shifting and sculpting stone creating unforgettable scenery such as the Cliffs of Moher, Burren Plateau and Islands. We recommend a visit to visit to the spectacular Aillwee Caves in Ballyvaughan at the heart of The Burren. The ancient Dolmen at Poulnabrune is a relic to the intelligence of the first settlers in this remote lunar like landscape. The villages of Ballyvaughan and Kinvarra are quaint and two of the most pleasant and photogenic in Ireland.


Galway City Centre Exploring & Shopping

Galway is Ireland's cultural, language, traditional music and artistic Capital. The city centre is famous for its lively ambience, street entertainment, shopping, cafes and pubs. As the centre of the city is all walking streets this is best explored on foot starting at Eyre Square and ending at The Claddagh Quay or vice versa. Shoppers in Galway will find an eclectic range or local goods from the Aran Sweaters to the Claddagh Rings. The Latin Quarter is veritably buzzing from the eclectic legacy of a European influenced maritime past which starts at the Spanish Arch. Dining and pubs numerous and the Quays Bar, Naughton's Pub and Mc Donaghs seafood restaurant are all favorites. We also recommend a quick stop at Lynchs Castle in the centre of Shop Street, a magnificent Gothic style castle with a macabre history.

Day 1 - 3

Ashford Castle Hotel

Ashford Castle Hotel is a 5 Star Luxury Castle on the Banks of Lough Corrib and is perhaps Irelands most quintessential and beautiful castle hotels. It has everything a person could want on a vast estate of 350 acres of woodlands, park and Lakelands. The hotel boasts two fine dining restaurants, a beautiful oak panelled bar, fishing, falconry, clay pigeon shooting and a host of other activities on its extensive estate. Many of our visitors to Ireland remark afterwards that a stay at Ashford was a once in a lifetime experience.
