day trips from Galway

My daughter is going to grad school in Galway and I'm going to fly over with her in September. She'll be busy with orientation, etc. the first few days and I'm going to be entertaining myself. Been to the Aran Islands (loved them), but want to take a few other day trips, probably bus or small group tour, while she is tied up. Suggestions?

Lally Tours, www.lallytours.com, offers some great tours up into the Connemaras and down into Clare, as well.

Galway East, www.galwayeast.com, offers a great tour into Eastern Co. GAlway, which includes Coole Park, Athenry Heritage Town, the Dartfield Hose Park and museum and a visit to Yeat's home, Thoor Ballylee.

Galway Tour Company, http://www.galwaytourcompany.com. would be another to take a look at. I was tired and didn't make the tour my friend booked for us through them. However she went and said it was a blast. The one she had booked for us was Celtic Tales.

I hope this helps. What a great place to go to Grad school!

Slan Beo,

Bit Devine

I would definitely recommend going up into Connemara. It was one of our favorite landscapes in Ireland. Look for a tour that includes Kylemore Abbey, which is just spectacular.

I have photos of the Connemara area and Kylemore in my recent Ireland trip report: http://tinyurl.com/ywv9xy

Your travelogue was great, ERin, and I loved the pictures. Can't wait to see the Abbey!
