PACKAGED ITINERARY
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Killary Harbour & Kylemore Abbey
This morning, we head for the beautiful village of Leenane at the head of Killary Harbour, Ireland’s only fjord, where we board our boat for a stunning 90 minute cruise. The views of the landscape are stunning as we cruise towards the mouth of the fjord, perhaps being followed by a pod of dolphins if we are lucky. Once back in Leenane, we travel to Kylemore Abbey, the home of a community of Benedictine nuns since 1920. The nuns have lovingly restored the abbey, Gothic church and the magnificent 6 acre Victorian walled garden which is divided in two by a beautiful mountain stream.

Day 3 Connemara Heritage Centre & Clifden
Today, we travel the short distance to the Connemara Heritage & History Centre which tells the history of Connemara down through the ages, from pre-historic to present times. Set around a restored pre-famine cottage, we enjoy an entertaining guided tour and tractor trailer tour which includes demonstrations of traditional farming activities such as turf cutting, sheep herding and soda bread making. In the afternoon, we spend the rest of the day at leisure in Clifden, the ‘gourmet capital’ of Western Ireland.

Day 4 Westport House
We spend the morning visiting Westport House where we board the Westport Train for an
entertaining 50 minute guided tour of Westport town, Westport harbour and Westport House Estate. We then enjoy a 30 minute guided tour of Westport House itself, one of the jewels in the crown of Ireland’s historical family homes. After our visit we enjoy free time in Westport.

Day 5 Departure
We begin our journey home today.
