This is all about location, location, location and the coastline of Connemara and Mayo boasts a wealth of undiscovered secrets, far from the maddening crowds. We have designed a multi activity tour to indulge your sensibilities into west of Ireland culture.
You will spend your days exploring ancient landscapes and sacred sites and your evenings nestled into unique Irish accommodation, listening to the dulcet tones of our traditional seanchaí (storyteller) or enjoying a starlight tour of Ireland’s celestial skies in Mayo’s gold tier international dark sky park (weather permitting).
We’ll introduce you to Ireland’s cuisine with the freshest of local ingredients from Ireland's finest restaurants and country houses, prepared with gourmet expertise.
This week-long experience features guided walks and cycle tours, visits to historic houses and heritage sites and even a traditional sea-weed bath for complete relaxation of mind and body.
Today we switch to two wheels to discover a tapestry of quiet country lanes, rolling hills in between the lakelands of North Mayo. The bicycle is an ideal way to explore this beautiful landscape, enjoying the views of the iconic Nephin mountain as you cycle along the shores of Lough Conn at your own pace. Later we will visit a traditional pub in Lahardane - a tiny village with a Titanic reputation, due to its connection with the ill-fated liner.
Our guides are a quirky bunch! Each has a special interest to add a little sparkle to your visit - from Mountain Leaders and Dark Sky Rangers to Magicians and Storytellers. We have a diverse group of experienced, sociable guides with a shared passion for natural heritage and exploring the cultural landscape.View Profile
