the success of last years tour we have decided to return to Ireland, this time
for a full weeks tour. After a fast ferry from Holyhead to Dublin the tour
travels northwest towards County Mayo
and the rugged Atlantic coast. We then turn southwards through the Connemara
national park to the lively university town of Galway.
is what I call a rolling tour i.e. a tour that involves single night stops.
Although this will not suit everybody it is a great way of covering distances
without travelling huge distances. The roads in Ireland vary enormously from
smooth motorways to potholed back roads however all the daily distances are well
within your capabilities. There will be a two night stay in Killarney to give us
a full day to tour the famous Ring of Kerry. Where possible we have
included evening meals , where not we have ensured that you are within easy
walking distance of pubs/restaurants.
