Connemara is a land of raw, wild beauty. Rugged mountains, pristine beaches, teacup-sized islands and heather-topped bogs await you on this getaway. Connemara is a place to escape from the busy world and enjoy the wonders of nature. While Connemara is one of Ireland’s popular regions, few venture beyond the cultivated trails and visitor centres. On this self drive trip, you’ll explore Connemara’s hidden gems and little-travelled corners.
Using our local knowledge, we’ll offer several suggestions, catered to your group’s ability level and preferences, to create a wonderful, off-the-beaten-path holiday on Ireland’s west coast while you travel at your own pace. Expect rural communities, winding trails, stunning vistas, home-cooked dishes, and layers of history from Neolithic times to present on this idyllic getaway at the ends of the Earth.
This short break is perfect for a weekend escape to the wilds of Ireland’s west coast, or it can be added to a larger trip. Want a bit of city life? Add a Galway extension for the chance to visit one of Ireland’s liveliest cities. Looking for luxury? Upgrade your accommodations or even add on a night in Ireland’s most luxurious castle hotel, Ashford Castle. The minimum group size is 2.
