COVID-19 Update (Mon. 06 July 2020):

 

Notice: As per latest advice issued by the Irish Government today, all tours are now suspended until further notice. However, our lockdown timetable has improved and it seems that tours will now resume later this summer (sooner than we envisaged). All future tours will be fully compliant with any government advised safety & hygiene protocols. Further updates will follow.

 

Update: Due to a nationwide lockdown which came into effect on Friday 27th March there has been drastic reduction in the number of colleagues available to deal with enquiries. All enquiries will be dealt with, but under the circumstances our normally excellent response time may be delayed somewhat. We will be unable to deal with telephone enquiries until further notice. Please send all enquiries to info@railtoursireland.com. Stay Safe during this time, the Railtours Ireland Team.

The Aran Islands by Scenic Flight


Enjoy your full Irish Breakfast before checking out of your hotel.

 

Meet at the waiting room in Galway train station, situated in close proximity to your hotel. From here, you will be escorted to the Aer Aran mini-coach for transfer to Connemara Airport for your scenic flight to Inis Mór. Flight times may vary occasionally to cater for the numbers flying.

 

Irish is the spoken language on the Aran Islands although the locals will be more than happy to speak to you in English. For many, the highlight of the tour is the formidable pre-Christian fort of Dún Aonghusa, with spectacular sea-cliffs on the western side and unspoilt views of the Atlantic Ocean.


Notes on Aran: Your tour of Inis Mór begins and ends at the island's airport and includes stops at the 'Seven Churches' (15 minutes), Dún Aonghusa (75 minutes) and Kilronan village for lunch (45 minutes).

 

On arrival back at Galway, you will be brought to the Tourist Office. You should now have some time in Galway city centre for exploring and/or shopping.

 

Please note: Should weather conditions be such as to curtail flights you will be taken on an alternative tour to Connemara and refunded the difference. No further refund available should you decide not to go to Connemara for any reason.
