The name Connemara means 'Inlets of the Sea'. This outstanding region of brooding scenery is marked by a series of coastal roads, which wind around small bays and untouched coves and string together a succession of seaside hamlets.

A little further inland, Connemara reveals a kaleidoscope of dramatic, quiet valleys and shimmering lakes, all set against the fantastic backdrop of the Maumturk Mountains and the stony peaks of the Twelve Bens Mountain Range. Here the region gives an aura of being undiscovered; much of the community here speaks Irish almost exclusively. This magnificent landscape, laced with dry-stone walls, has naturally been attracting visitors for well over a century and, with the numerous attractions of the area's quiet villages, is a must for any visit to Ireland.

“A great tour of Eire, seeing most of the important sights, albeit briefly. This meant many early starts which can get tiring. It was good to have the same coach driver throughout so as to establish a relationship. The two Irish music and dance shows were good but people were packed in too tightly and there was fire risk in my opinion. We only got two rail journeys and it would have been good to see some of the lesser used lines. The guide, Alan, was superb and kept up a running commentary on the countryside and the Irish way of life. Inevitably, there was a long time spent on the coach going up the Wild Atlantic Way but it was worth it. For visitors from the USA, there is no air-con in most of the hotels in the West.
