Day 1
2 Stops


The best of Galway City and surrounds is on today’s agenda, making Day One of your Bay Coast road trip more than memorable. Get to know Galway, the City of the Tribes, in all its laid-back, creative glory; get out on the gentle waters of stunning Lough Corrib; make memories - and perhaps even a little magic - at the Salthill Prom. Wherever your day in Galway leads you, you’re sure to find something to love about this wonderful city way out west.

Day 2
1 Stops


Get set for a unique experience today as you depart lively Galway City for the Aran Islands.
Enjoy astonishing views of the islands from Rossaveal Pier before boarding the ferry that will bring you to Inis Mór - the largest of the three and your home for the night. Take time to explore this unique landscape and immerse yourself in the equally special island culture as you settle in for an evening you won’t soon forget.

Day 3
2 Stops


Leave the islands behind today and resume your northward track along some of the prettiest coastal road in the world. With no shortage of inviting towns, unmissable attractions, and alluring landscapes to marvel at, you’ll almost certainly be left wanting more. From Roundstone to Clifden to Leenane and everywhere in between, it’ll be a whirlwind. As the adventures of the afternoon at Delphi wind down, take time to savour the experience over a delicious meal and, of course, a bit of craic.

Day 4

With just one destination on the itinerary for today, you’ll have the opportunity to relax and reflect on the excitement of the previous few days.

Although Westport, your home for the night, is a lively town, you’ll find just the right pace for you as you wander its pretty streets and get to know the down-to-earth locals.
