Connemara

Clifden Town Centre


Check-in is 20 minutes prior to Train Departure Time.

Customer Service Desk at Heuston Station where our Check-In representative will be in their yellow jacket!

 

Check-in for 07:35 departure from Dublin Heuston, opened in 1844 as the headquarters of the Great Southern & Western Railway, now the official principal station of Iarnród Éireann, Ireland’s national railway company.

 

As your train departs, we travel in a south westerly direction, through Dublin's western suburbs and then through the lush fertile countryside of Co. Kildare. Our journey takes us through the Curragh which is famous for its racecourse, home of the Irish Derby, and there are many stud farms in the vicinity. Your route takes you into the midlands and the Bog of Allen, vast tracts of peat-land. Before then we pass through the country town of Tullamore and then to Clara across the gentle farmlands of north Offaly. The train crosses the River Shannon, which marks the historic border between the province of Leinster and Connacht – the historic province of the West of Ireland. You are now heading due west, surrounded by peat bog on both sides of the line. On the last few kilometres before Galway, you will get your first glimpse of Galway Bay.

 

Upon arrival in Galway, we transfer to our waiting coach and strike out along the shore of Galway Bay and into the magnificent scenery of this region known as Connemara. Our lunch stop is in the pretty little fishing village of Roundstone with its fabulous views over the bay to the Twelve Bens mountain range.

 

Our next stop is at unique Coral beach on this wild Atlantic Coast. We see the bogs where Alcock & Brown crash landed in 1919 after the first ever transatlantic flight.

 

We arrive in Clifden, view the spectacular Sky Road before our arrival to our hotel.
