Enjoy your full Irish Breakfast, check out of your hotel.

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


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

 

On arrival back at Galway you will be brought to the Tourist Office. You now should 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.
