Connemara Day Tour is one the spectacular highlights of Ireland. My love for scenic beauty and Castle last forever.
On my 2 days trip to Galway, I spent a full day in Connemara National Park, Cong Village, and a beautiful Kylemore Castle. If you have missed my Galway excursion check this link.
Some footprints last forever and it is one of them, Let’s follow my wanderlust:
We traveled by Galway Tours, with the scenic heavens of Ireland roads and reach to our 1st destination.
Ross Errily Abbey:
A Truly special place from 14th Century. I am not a history kinda person, but I love its architecture. The framework of this abbey is very detailed like Irish history.
It’s an admirable village from the 12th century. A walk to remember through woods to the monk fishing cottage on the river. My Pictorial Journey below:
We spend an hour of exploration and boarded for the next stop.
Drive all the way to Lough Nafooey, Leenane to Killary Fjord.
Kylemore Abbey & Garden:
Ireland’s most romantic fairytale Castle. A castle surrounded by mountains, with its own private lake, a Gothic cathedral, family mausoleum and a private garden. It was built by a wealthy doctor for his Wife when they move to Ireland. Huh !! it’s a true story. What else women need? Perfect place to fall in love thousand times.
We spend around 3 hours, discovering deep down the love this place shows. Stopped for a cup of tea with a view of these Woolies.
The most stunning part of this castle is the Victorian Walled Garden. there are two options to reach there either you walk or avail shuttle service (every 15 minutes).
TO my wonder !! How this place was maintained with the lack of equipment and luxuries like nowadays. It always remains a question mark to me.
Leaving this fairytale behind with a promise that I will be back again… to our last stop
Connemara is incomplete without the stay at Inagh Valley. It is also known as the home of fairies & goblins. and why not Inagh Valley have some majestic view to hold your heart.
And to my surprise on our way back, I spotted a Connemara pony. It is one the unique breed of Horses with a kind heart and a well temperament nature. They were bought back by viking and still openly spotted into Connemara National Park.
I highly recommend people visiting to Galway (Ireland) or its surrounding must take a tour to this place. Now show some love to my journey by commenting and Sharing. Keep rolling with me and TRAVEL MY JOURNEY.
