Stage 9. Roundstone to Clifden

This is our shortest stage but you won’t be disappointed – we have so much to see and do in Connemara! The morning spin takes us from Roundstone along the coast and towards Ballyconnelly, passing alongside the beautiful beaches of Gurteen and Dog’s Bay.

From Ballyconnelly we’ll make our way to Clifden before heading out the aptly-named Sky Road. The whole route is picture-perfect from start to finish; breath-taking panoramas are dotted with small cottages and fields full of Connemara ponies and wildflowers.

Once we finish the Sky Road Loop, we’ll enjoy lunch in Clifden and the afternoon will be yours to enjoy! You can soak up the charms of Clifden town or join us for a pony ride across some of Connemara’s pristine white beaches. After that, you can choose to visit the Connemara Smokehouse http://www.smokehouse.ie/, join us for the afternoon tour of the Benedictine Monastery in Kylemore Abbey http://www.kylemoreabbey.com or explore the Connemara National Park in Letterfrack. Whatever takes your fancy, we’ve got it covered!
Of all of our stages, this will be one to remember – enjoy!
