Stop At: Molly Malone Statue, In Front of the Saint Andrew's Church Tourist Office Suffolk Street, Dublin Ireland

We will meet in front of the Molly Malone Statue located on Suffolk Street. We will begin our exciting journey by crossing the west coast of Ireland toward Connemara. We will take an exceptionally scenic route towards Oughterard, which is considered to be the gateway into Connemara! While passing through charming little towns along the way, you will have the luxury of encountering views that are truly unmatched anywhere else across the land! Any signs or boundaries do not mark Connemara National Park; you will realize you have arrived from the breathtaking surroundings.

We had an incredible trip to Connemara with our driver Mack. There were some great stops along the way: mines, Kylemore Abbey and the boat cruise, and he even made some additional stops with stunning views along the way as we were ahead of schedule. Overall there was a nice atmosphere and Mack told stories, informed us about different places and Irish history and even sang a song once in a while. The driving was a little long, but as Connemara is far away from Dublin, that was to be expected. We absolutely loved the trip and will be sure to come back!

This was long trip - the bus had issues. The silver mine was very interesting. The abbey was great. Long ride

Fantastic tour. I really liked the small group rather than a large one. Jennifer and Rob did such a great job! Jennifer gave lots of history as we drove and played good Irish music as well. Well worth the money!

A tour not to be missed by any Ireland visitor. Our tour was lucky because the weather was great and we enjoyed the 1 1/2 hour cruise on Ireland's only fjord. Beautiful scenery,very informative with an exceptional tour guide with a great sense of humor. It was one of my favorite tour on my three visits to Ireland. Made for a very long day sitting on the bus across Ireland but well worth it and unforgettable.

Barry was a very knowledgeable, funny, and helpful tour guide. The drive over from Dublin and the ferry ride were excellent ways to see Ireland beyond the cities and airports...

A fun trip, Patrick regaled us with stories and song. Many hours on the bus with adequate bathroom breaks. If I would change anything, I would skip some of the driving through hills looking at sheep in favor of more time in Galway. Forty five minutes was barely enough to exchange some cash and grab a pint. Looks like a delightful town but really had no time to enjoy it.

This was a great tour from the bus driver Mac with his humor, song singing, and history lessons to the wonderful scenery in the Connemara, Killary Fjord, Kylemore Abbey, and Galway City including Mac's guided tour of Galway sites. My girlfriend and I enjoyed it very much. Thank you Mac and Extreme Travel for a great day tour of Western Ireland.
