Medieval Galway Weekend

This trip is specifically designed to combine a professional guided tour with a medieval town experience that also affords ample time to savor the delights of Galway outside of the tour environment.

Our 3 day break includes exploration of the medieval city of Galway, the karst limestone  landscape of the Burren and the spectacular Cliffs of Moher in west county Clare, all in the company of a professional guide.

This is an ideal choice for those wishing to get away for a few days to enjoy a special weekend in the west of Ireland.
