Guided Walking : Europe

Ireland: Connemara & Galway Bay

Easy to Moderate Terrain: 4-8 Miles Daily

Ireland: Connemara & Galway Bay

Join us for some craic agus ceoil (fun and music) while exploring the windswept bluffs, verdant farmland, and little-known islands of western Ireland. In the cultural heart of the Emerald Isle, you’ll stroll the vibrant streets of Galway past busking musicians, historic buildings, and charming shops. You’ll walk the dramatic coast along the Cliffs of Moher, where lush, green headlands meet the roaring ocean, and Killary Harbor, home to abandoned settlements that bear testament to Ireland’s famine-stricken past. Inishbofin Island offers golden beaches, grassy paths, and a rich history haunted by artists, monks, and pirates. The bare karst landscape of the Burren is a geological wonder of limestone rocks and rare plants, home to an Iron Age fort and a Bronze Age burial ground. Sweeping views await you high in the Mamturk Mountains, the “fairy hills” of Sheeauns, and the lake-dappled peat lands of Connemara National Park. The island’s crowning glory, however, is its Irish spirit: ebullient and witty, life-affirming and infectious.


Tour Highlights:
  • Walk the low-lying causeway out to Omey Island, a path inaccessible at high tide, to feast your eyes upon spectacular vistas of grassy fields, ancient monasteries, and pink-granite outcroppings.
  • Gain a deeper appreciation for Irish music with your knowledgeable guides, who know the best spots—from Shannon to Limerick—for world-class fiddling, dancing, and song.
  • Step into Ireland’s ancient history with visits to Celtic crosses, prehistoric forts, and a seventh-century monastery.
