Connemara and Galway Bay Rail Tour

Discover the magic of Connemara on this delightful day tour by coach and rail from Dublin. Leaving Heuston Station after breakfast, travel right across the breadth of Ireland to Galway on the Atlantic coast. See the vast expanse of bog for which Ireland is famous and watch the countryside change from the hedgerows of the east to the stone walls of the far west. In Galway, board a motor coach and strike out along the shores of Galway Bay into Connemara. See the pretty villages and the breathtaking beauty of the unspoilt landscape. Enjoy photo-stops at Leenane Quiet Man Bridge, Inagh Valley, Rossaveal, Spiddal, Mc Cullen, and Oughterard, and a longer stop at historic Kylemore Abbey. Travel through the national park of Letterfrack, where purple mountains roll down to blue and green rocky valleys, reflecting the rich and varied colors of Connemara. And see the place where Alcock and Brown crash-landed after their historic transatlantic flight in 1919. Head back to Galway through the Gaeltacht, or Irish speaking area of Connemara, and enjoy magnificent views across the blue waters of the Atlantic to the rocks of the Burren and the hills of Clare. In Galway, you will join your train for the return to Dublin.
