Look out for the colonies of nesting seabirds and enjoy spectacular views of the Aran Islands, Galway Bay and the Maumturk Mountains in Connemara. Later we head to Liscannor, where we have a short stop for lunch before a scenic coastal drive to Killimer. Here we board a ferry for the 20 minute crossing to Tarbert, where we visit the Foynes Flying Boat Museum. This is a unique, uplifting and informative gem of a museum, housed in the original terminal building recalling the nostalgic years of 1937-1945 when Foynes was the centre of the aviation world. It is also the home of Irish coffee, which was created to warm passengers up after a period of bad weather, and we will therefore also enjoy an Irish coffee making demonstration!

Admire the 15th and 16th century furnishings, tapestries and works of art. Take a stroll through the delightful grounds of the Folk Park, which brings 19th century living to life, with 30 buildings in a village, including a school, post office, doctor’s house, printers and pub! Why not have a chat to some of the characters for an idea of what life would have been like? We will also enjoy tea/coffee and scones during our visit. In the afternoon we can spend time at leisure in Ireland’s prettiest village, Adare, with beautiful stone buildings, thatched cottages, shops, traditional pubs and a heritage centre or alternatively, relax and use the facilities at our lovely hotel.
Day 4 – Killarney. This morning we head to delightful Killarney, one of Ireland’s most popular tourist resorts.
