Day tour Connemara and Kylemore abbey

I recently took a tour with the wild Atlantic way tours from Galway. It was a very enjoyable and informative tour and I learnt plenty of the history of Galway city. We got to experience the rugged beauty of Connemara and also kylemore abbey. Kylemore Abbey is the most beautiful place I have ever been too and also the most peaceful. We had a three hour stop and believe me you need it to take it all in. If I was to go to Galway again I would go on tour with the wild Atlantic way tour company.

Wild, beautiful and charming Connemara

I didn’t know what to expect, but this tour was phenomenal! Our guide was Gerry and he used his obvious love for the area to bring it to life for everyone on the trip!

The day was rainy and the mist obscured the scenery in certain parts of the trip. Gerry made up for that fact with his vivid descriptions of the countryside that were interspersed with his wealth of knowledge in historical facts and anecdotes - not to mention the occasional song or joke!

There is a part of this particular tour where you will have to choose to walk in the Connemara National Forest or visit the Kylemore Abbey. While I was torn on which to choose - I can’t recommend the Abbey enough! In case you haven’t looked it up - this is actually a castle! Set in a fairytale landscape of breathtaking beauty - walking the grounds and the walled-in garden will be well worth your while!

Everything about the rugged beauty of Connemara is mesmerizing and a true feast to the senses. Stunning.
