Explore a selection of contrasting islands off the west coast of Ireland.

Nothing says ‘escape’ like a break on an Irish island – and this self-drive holiday takes in four of them!

Every destination on this nine-night self-drive exploration holiday boasts its own distinctive character.  Overnight stays on Achill and the Aran Islands, as well as colourful Westport and historic Connemara, with day-trips to the tranquil Clare Island and magical Inishbofin Island, set this off as a truly one-off experience, memories of which will live with you for ever.

Each island makes for a wonderful destination for a day-tripper, but what’s the hurry? This holiday gives a mixture of superb island accommodation run by local families, combined with stays in Westport, Co Mayo and on the Connemara mainland.  There is ample opportunity to sample traditional Irish Music, freshly produced local food and maybe a tipple or three of the local beverages. It takes everything at a leisurely pace, giving you enough time to take in the landscape, culture, and wonderful sights of this truly outstanding part of the Wild Atlantic Way.
