Wild Atlantic Way Day Tours An exciting opportunity to explore Galway's countryside
Tours with Wild Atlantic Way Day Tours whisk you out of the City to show you all the beauty that rural Galway has to offer.
Each tour offers a unique opportunity to dive into the heart of Galway, learn about local lore and legend from experienced guides, and visit some amazing sites that can be hard to reach.
Their Connemara tour takes you along the coast, passing through Gaeltachts, or Irish-speaking villages. Thatched cottages, dry stone walls, woodland, and of course the Atlantic ocean await! You’ll stop at the cottage of an Easter Rising leader, also known as Pearse’s Cottage, before heading into the mountains and bogland of Connemara for a day of twisting roads, soaring mountains and a vast and moody landscape. Hike the Connemara National Park or explore the 19th century Kylemore Abbey, among other adventures while on the tour!
The Cliffs of Moher brings you south along the Wild Atlantic Way. You’ll visit Dunguaire Castle on the bay in Kinvara, one of Ireland’s most-photographed castles. Then it’s onwards to the Burren Birds of Prey Centre at the Aillwee Caves. You’ll travel Corkscrew Hill (which is just as the name suggests) through the Burren, known for its unusual flora. And of course, the tour brings you right to the spectacular Cliffs of Moher.
Their Aran Islands tour takes you out by way of the Cliffs of Moher, passing medieval ruins and 16th century tower house castles, churches, and graveyards along the ferry. You’ll travel by ferry to the Aran Islands, landing on the smallest (and, some say, loveliest) of the three islands. You can hire a bicycle, or even a pony and trap to explore the island and discover all the ancient ruins, beaches and gorgeous views that await. The ferry returns on a guided scenic cruise beneath the Cliffs of Moher before bringing you back to Galway by bus.
These tours are a fun and easy way to explore all the beauty that County Galway has to offer!
