From Galway: Connemara National Park Full Day Tour

1. From Galway: Connemara National Park Full Day Tour

Escape the hustle and bustle of Galway on this guided tour to Connemara National Park. Learn about the traditions, music, and language of the region before enjoying free time to explore the park and hike Diamond Hill. Start by meeting at the meeting point or making use of the free pickup option. En route to and from the park, your driver will break up the journey by making frequent photo and coffee stops and allowing you to soak in as much of Connemara as you can. With the help of your driver-guide, learn all you need to know about the region and plan how you'll spend your time at the Connemara National Park. Plus, get a chance to hear some local traditional music. Upon arrival at the park, your driver will explain your return time with you before you enjoy free time for two hours. Shortly after arriving, prepare for a hike on Diamond Hill. There are three primary hiking routes at the National Park, each varying in difficulty and length. Each route starts and finishes at a welcome center and cafe/tea rooms. After the two hours of hiking, meet your driver at the predetermined drop-off point and start to make your way back to Galway. The return route shows you the coastal side of Connemara, providing a different view from the outbound route.

What people are saying about County Mayo

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Weather was exceptional and the historic commentary was very informative. Very comfortable crossing with all amenities and refreshments on board. Highly recommend and great value for money.

We weren't driving so it cost us a lot to get there and back from Westport. Weather was better than expected. It was a lovely relaxing trip. Staff very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately no dolphins

Great little trip, plenty of food and drink choices on board. We were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins which ended up racing beside our boat. 10/10
