Itinerary: 
 
Sunday 29 September 2019
We will pick you up from our designated pick up point and make our way to Galway City where you will have a couple of hours to enjoy some sightseeing, shopping and a bite of lunch along the way.

Monday 30 September 2019
After breakfast today we will board the coach and make our way to Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Garden - a visit to Kylemore will make an unforgettable memory and has been home to the Benedictine order for many years. The dramatic landscape and iconic image of a gothic castle reflected in a Connemara Lake has made Kylemore Abbey world-famous and it is now the largest tourist attraction in the west of Ireland. After our visit to Kylemore we will make the short journey to Leenane where we will take a wonderful 90 minute cruise on Killary Fjord. This offers a great way to take in the dramatic sweep of the landscape as you pass between the Twelve Bens and the Maam Turk mountains to the South, in County Galway and the Mweelrea mountains to the North in County Mayo, as well as the views out to the Atlantic at the mouth of the fjord.After the cruise we will return to the hotel travelling the wild and rugged coast road via Delphi and Louisburgh returning to the hotel in time to freshen up before dinner. (D,B&B)
 
Tuesday 1 October 2019
After a leisurely breakfast we will leave the hotel and set off for a relaxing drive on Achill Island. Achill has inspired many artists with its natural beauty and spectacular skies reflecting the special daylight that comes with the ocean. Achill Island and the Currane Peninsula are among the most remote and scenic areas in Ireland. Some of the local roads that follow the coastline of Achill, and which boast some of the most spectacular views of the area, have been designated. 'The Atlantic Drive'. We will return to the hotel in the afternoon. (D,B&B)
 
Wednesday 2 October 2019
After breakfast this morning you will visit Westport House which is situated close to your hotel.
Explore the grounds and gardens and take a tour of the house which takes approximately 1-1½ hours. Designed by the famous architects Richard Cassels, James Wyatt and Thomas Ivory in the 18th Century, it is located west of the Shannon and is one of Irelands’ most beautiful historic homes open to the public. After your visit to Westport House we will travel out to Croagh Patrick Visitor Centre at the Foot of the Holy Mountain. Here you can learn more about the history and archaeology of the mountain and perhaps enjoy some refreshments in the coffee shop and a browse in the gift shop. We will return to the hotel in the afternoon. (D,B&B)
 
Thursday 3 October 2019
This morning we will check out of the hotel and make the journey to nearby Castlebar where you will visit the award winning National Museum of Country Life, located in Turlough Village, 8kms east of Castlebar. The Museum is home to the National Folklife Collection which represents traditional life in Ireland throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. Fascinating artifacts deal with domestic life, agriculture, fishing and hunting, clothing and textiles, furniture and fittings, trades and crafts, transport, sports and leisure and religion. Departing the museum we will continue on the short journey to Knock where we will stop for a short break before continuing back to drop you off at your original pick up points, with comfort stops en-route as necessary.
