This morning we visit the Connemara History & Heritage Center which offers a unique insight into the history and heritage of this beautiful part of the West of Ireland. See how turf (peat) is cut and sample a drop of ‘poitín’ (moonshine for you Yanks!).

Enjoy some free time in Clifden for lunch or maybe a pint in a local pub. Stop in Connemara Marble on the way back to Galway City.  Mr. Kennedy will regale you this evening with some songs from this lovely part of Ireland. Hills of Connemara and The Galway Shawl, perhaps?

Saturday, April 27th

Today we are going south into the other-worldly Burren, a veritable moonscape of glacial limestone with majestic mountains, gentle valleys and babbling brooks. Its extraordinary array of flora and fauna make the Burren a tapestry of color with a deeply spiritual aura. Stop at the Cliffs of Moher and take in the stunning Clare coastline.  Onward into the beautiful county of Kerry. After dinner, a few Kerry songs from himself.

Another breakfast, and today we travel along the Dingle Peninsula to delight in the stunning views of the Slieve Mish Mountains, the shoreline of Dingle Bay and the open Atlantic Ocean. Near Slea Head, Ireland’s Westernmost point, we will be able to see the Blasket Islands offshore, and possibly America. Visit the Blasket Center a fascinating heritage and cultural museum, honoring the unique community who lived on the remote Blasket Islands until their evacuation in 1953. Return to Dingle and dinner will be at our hotel. Who knows what musical interlude Seamus has planned for this evening? But it will be fun!
