Resting at the foot of the Ox Mountains, delightful Tubbercurry is a traditional Irish market town with quaint and colourful streets. Out and about you get a feel for the real Ireland, from the shores of the much versed Donegal Bay to the surprisingly tranquil lakes and villages and the dramatic vistas of the wild Atlantic Coast. Venture a little further and the unspoilt landscapes of Connemara and the vibrant city of Galway beckon, offering yet more unique memories of the majestic Emerald Isle.

We continue into the Connemara National Park, a dreamlike landscape of mountains, lakes and whitewashed villages. We pass by Killary Harbour, Ireland’s only fjord, and pause by Kylemore Abbey before reaching Clifden - the ‘capital’ of Connemara - where pastel coloured waterfront buildings are a scenic backdropto the bay and looming Twelve Pin Mountains.
DAY FIVE: Today we tour north to reach the picturesque coastal town of Sligo that inspired some of Yeats’s finest works. Skirting the shores of Donegal Bay we continue to the resort of Bundoran, a popular centre for surfers catching the huge Atlantic rollers.

Arch, all captivating the charm of Ireland.
