Creating dream Irish group and individual holidays for over 30 years
Are you looking to create the perfect holiday for your family, friends or just the two of you in the Emerald Isle but are not sure where to start? Is a complete experience important to you, one that is authentic and allows you to gain a true insight into a unique place and way of life?
At Connemara Adventure Tours we have in-depth knowledge of Connemara and the Wild Atlantic Way in particular, and we will hand-pick the experiences that will make that dream biking or walking trip in Ireland come true for you. We will plan and organise your tour, taking care of every detail, while still allowing you the freedom to explore and the flexibility essential to a successful holiday.
Everything you could wish for and more
Whether you see yourself pedalling through winding country roads in the shadow of rugged peaks or walking an ancient pilgrim path at sunrise we can make it happen. Our routes can bring you to an array of natural beauties combining coastline with deep valleys; golden, empty beaches with traditional island living, all in one accessible tour. Activities as varied as high adrenaline adventure sports, visiting a nineteenth century walled garden or a cruise on Ireland’s most dramatic fjord will broaden your experience and keep each of you interested and, most importantly, happy.
What we do
We will work with your budget, your time available, the areas you wish to explore and activities that interest you. Making every effort to facilitate any special wishes you might have, we will then design a bespoke tour just for you. As with our scheduled tours you can choose a guided or self-guided tour and accommodation to suit your budget. A choice of cycling, walking, horseback or driving tours means every interest and pace can be catered for. We will also meet you on arrival at your starting point and provide all the information and support you need before you set off together.
We work with a strong network of high-quality accommodation, activity and tourism partners and we have researched widely to make sure what we offer is the very best there is. With over 30 years’ experience in organising dream Irish holidays and tours, you can be sure that ours is a smooth service covering every eventuality.
Our team – experienced, professional and personal
Our expert team which will create and organise your tailor-made tour consists of Chloe and Gabriel. They are in turn backed up by the wider Killary Adventure Company team. Though a small team, the combined wealth of Chloe and Gabriel’s experience and the highly personal service they provide means that your experience will never be just that of another customer. Instead you will be treated like a good friend coming to visit. They will be there from the first enquiry through to your arrival in Connemara and all the way to the end of your adventure trip in Ireland. They are always at the end of a phone and are eager to help in any way they can.
Chloe is the Connemara Adventure Tours Manager, from France originally but now married to Conor (who also works for Connemara Adventure Tours). They live in the small village of Leenane in Connemara with their two little girls. Chloe is passionate about her adopted home and her enthusiasm for it and knowledge of it is boundless. She is also highly organised and meticulous in her attention to detail. Chloe will leave no stone unturned to ensure you experience the holiday that matches your every wish and that is completely stress-free.
Gabriel, who is originally from Chile, fell in love with an Irish girl and later her native country. As a result, he arrived in Connemara and never left. He has a background in guiding, both fishing and kayaking, and has explored every corner of his new homeland seeking out exciting experiences, untamed beauty and the path less travelled! Gabriel is patient and highly organised in his planning and arranging of tours. Creating a tailor-made tour which perfectly matches your holiday ideals is always his priority.
As we are based in Leenane in the Connemara region of Co Galway we organise tours of this region, as well as of the Wild Atlantic Way, all the way from Cork to Donegal. However, we can and do organise bespoke tours of anywhere else in Ireland with ease. We can arrange starting and finishing points to suit your travel arrangements. Though we can start and finish your tour in Dublin we do not organise tours of, or accommodation in, Dublin city as we prefer to offer you the chance to discover the rest of Ireland and get off the beaten track.
