This fully guided 2 day tour starts in Dublin and finishes in Galway, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Stretching from the west coast to east coast, the route takes in counties Galway, Roscommon, Westmeath, Meath, Kildare and Dublin.
The tour starts from Dublin which is well known for the Guinness factory and the famous Temple Bar. Dublin may be a small capital, but its cosmopolitan bone fides have been firmly established. Beyond its impressive collection of museums and galleries, and its choice of food from all four corners of the globe. It will be a relaxed start in the morning giving everyone time for breakfast before we depart mid morning.
The tour stops in Tullamore for the night – Tullamore is a town in County Offaly who’s famous export is Tullamore Dew – an Irish whiskey distilled by Tullamore Distillery.
We arrive in Galway at the end of the second day. Galway is often referred to as the ‘most Irish’ of Ireland’s cities, it’s the only one where you’re likely to hear Irish spoken in the streets, shops and pubs. Bridges arch over the salmon-stuffed River Corrib, and a long promenade leads to the seaside suburb of Salthill, on Galway Bay, the source of the area’s famous oysters. Accommodation will be provided in Tullamore and Galway.
