Let us quote your Connacht tour...

Connacht is located in Ireland's West. It is made up of five counties ; Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo. It is arguably Ireland's most picturesque province and the one that holds the old traditions of Ireland the strongest. There is currently 40,000–55,000 Irish speakers in Connacht. The Gaeltacht of West Galway is the largest Irish speaking region in Ireland.

With many years experience in the DMC Ireland Industry, Discover Ireland Tours have noticed the overwhelmingly positive feedback we receive about Galway City. From it's charming cobble stone street to it's rich and proud history, everyone who visits the city seems to leave with fond memories of it. If you are wishing to create your own tour of Ireland then Connacht is an essential destination. Connacht's coastline runs along the majestic Atlantic Ocean and the ocean's constant erosion has given Connacht a beautifully rugged outline. Cruise Ireland's west coast and The Wild Atlantic Way by Europcar.
