Taking you through the beautiful villages of connemara while stopping off at four different hostelries on route and sampling the best food and/or drink Connemara has to offer, you will still make it back to Westport for your evening’s entertainment.

Enjoy a pint or a seafood chowder, listen to a story from the barman or barmaid, sing a song or speak a few words as Gaeilge!
