Dublin to Galway
The midlands of Ireland are famous for bogs & peatlands. This has a special place for many Irish whose ancestors drew their winter fuel from the same! Today you will have the opportunity to see the workings of the bogs as you cross the centre of Ireland!
This early monastery was quite a city in its day serving the community before Christian life changed forever in the 16th century. Today we get a rare glimpse into the style of life & artefacts of that period
Along your route is Irelands oldest distillery which like Ireland itself has various levels of luck over the centuries. Today this quite little distillery is being revived by the local people & others to be a very special part of Irelands Whiskey future!
The oldest pub in Ireland & maybe the world, Seans is a friendly watering hole serving a local brew to everyone since the Vikings with no break! A worthy stop to anyone with an interest in having a drink in Ireland where you will find the owner only too willing to stop & chat & tell you a bit about the place!
Early Christian Heritage
The river Shannon crosses the Esker Riada along your route just as it always guided the early Christians into the centre of Ireland. You will have the chance to see this crossing point & understand how Christianity became so popular so quickly in Ireland.
Your guide will be delighted to introduce you to some of the amazing gentle people who live on your path from Dublin to Galway. You will feel like a local after this tour!
