PRIVATE PUB TOUR
Just off the Connemara coast lie the three Aran Islands, Inis Mór, Inis Meáin and our favourite destination and the smallest of the islands, Inis Oírr. Flying across from Connemara Airport, you will get a birds eye view of the islands, the Connemara coastline and the Cliffs of Moher in the distance.
Inis Oírr is the home of three pubs all with their own personality and character. Included in your day will be a tour of the island on the Wanderly Wagon tractor and trailer, visiting the Father Ted Shipwreck, the underground Church and the 15th Century Castle.
As we take the ferry from the island, the joys of Connemara await as we will have time to stop off at a local pub in Connemara to enjoy what it has to offer before retuirning to the bright lights of Galway City.

A taste of what to expect…
As you make your way on the short walk from Inis Oirr airport to Tigh Rory, our first port of call, you will get a great sense of island life. Passing by the ancient cemetery, schools and GAA pitch, you will experience how vibrant island life is on Inis Oirr. Eoin, Gráinne and family will assure you of a warm welcome as you make yourself comfortable either indoors or in their secluded outside seating area. A wide array of food and drink is on offer here with locally caught seafood served fresh daily. What better way to get a taste of Inis Oirr.
Just a stone’s throw away is Óstán Inis Oirr, the island’s hotel. Full of character with a fusion of old and new, memorabilia from times gone and from recent times fills the walls and the many locals present are only delighted to share their stories and knowledge with you.
Another short but scenic walk takes you past the sandy beach and crystal clear waters and on to Tigh Ned, our third and final stop on Inis Oirr. Both a Publican and a Fisherman, seafood is a feature of the casual dining experience here with a beer garden made almost entirely from Limestone. You will relish your time at Tigh Ned, with its views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Connemara coastline.
Heading back to the Airport aboard the Wanderly Wagon, this is an afternoon to remember!
“GREAT WAY TO SPEND A VACATION DAY IN IRELAND!”
"We recently took the Connemara & Aran Islands pub tour from Connemara Pub Tours and found it an excellent value and great fun. Our guide Padraic was a local and very knowledgeable about the gaelic culture. We enjoyed being introduced to gaelic football. Inisheer was beautiful and the seafood was fantastic. We highly recommend this tour. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland."BILL & TRACIE COLUMBUS OHIO
“INCREDIBLY WELL ORGANISED STAG ACTIVITY BY THE TEAM”
"I organised this activity for a stag party in Galway with an ever changing number and other difficult factors. Padraic was our guide, got engaged with our group and also talked us through each pub. He was in regular contact with us throughout the build up to the day and nothing was ever a problem. Thoroughly recommended, even though I'm a pretty hard customer to please!"RAVI P LONDON, UK
“ONE OF THE TOP TRAVEL EXPERIENCES OF MY LIFE!”
"I've been lucky enough to travel a lot and do a lot, but I have to say this is one of the events that is at the top of my list. A couple of friends and I joined the Connemara Aran Islands pub crawl along with a stag party and I couldn't have asked for a better day."IRISHEYESKT12
“WONDERFUL STAG DO EXPERIENCE”
"The highlight of the weekend for the 12 of us. A wonderful island in the sunshine with some great pubs and memorable flights there and back. Padraic was the perfect your guide and I can't recommend the Connemara & Aran Isles tour highly enough."MENISCUSIII
