There are so many beautiful Islands off the west coast of Ireland, and we decided to put together an Island Hopping tour. We take in the beautiful rugged countryside of Connemara with its lakes and mountain landscape. We stay in B&B's in a quaint coastal town. We take our trip every morning to explore different Islands and the people that live on them. 

You will experience the real Irish culture on these Islands, from The Aran Islands with the people there only speaking the Irish language to Coney Island  off the coast of Sligo. All are stunning Islands and you will truly feel a peace that is rare to find anywhere else.

We will be staying in a quaint coastal town for the duration of our trip. 

After we have a hearty breakfast, we then go down the road s to a place called Cleggan where we get the boat to Inisbofin. This Island has such a great variety of things to do and see, from the Heritage museum to Cromwell's Barracks, Beaches, Equestrain Centre, Marine spa, Craft workshop and pottery and Handpainting.  It has stunning views and cliffs that would take your breath away.  We can take a looped walk around the Island where you will see the flora and fauna. We return by boat to the mainland in the evening where we can have our evening meal in Cleggan. 

 Achill Island is off the coast of Mayo and is a large Island. There is so much on this island to see and experience, so we can take it easy and take it all in.

Achill has no less than 5 Blue Flag beaches which is a delight to take a stroll on. It has galleries and Craft shops. Knitting and pottery. We will visit an artist and sculpture of Bog Oak and watch him at work. We will also visit the Deserted village with over 100 ruins of houses that were left empty after the families either died or left due to the famine in Ireland. 

We take a trip inland to visit places like  Leenane, Westport and the Museum of Country Life near Castlebar Co Mayo, before heading back.

Shopping day in Galway today. We drop you off and you can spend a few hours  exploring this great city, then we bring you out to the Craft village in Spiddal which is a beautiful coastal village.

We take a trip to Rossaveal to catch the ferry into Inismore, which is the biggest of the Aran Islands. This place is rich with ancient sites, stunning scenery, culture, great seafood restaurants. 

We go to the North West today to a place Carrowkeel, where we will visit the oldest underground tomb in Europe. It pre-dates the pyramids by 800 years,  then we make our way to  a small Island off the the Sligo coast called Coney Island. Today we are going to have a BBQ, invite some singers and musicians and have a big party on the Island. (Weather premitting). If the weather is not good, we bring you on a stunning coastal scenic drive, and also take a boat trip on lough Gill. 

We leave the West today and make our way to Dublin where we stay for our last night. We give you a day exploring Dublin city before we go to our hotel to have our last meal and drinks together.
