This tour will bring you to the largest of the islands in this area, home of Granuaile.

At the foot of Croagh Patrick, (Irelands Holy mountain) you will find the National Famine Monument commemorating all those who died during the Great Famine 1845 - 1847. Beside this you will also find the ruins of a 15th century friary.

As you carry onward along the route you will pass many fine blue flag beaches. In the picturesque village of Louisburgh it is well worth calling on the Granuaile Visitor Centre, and learning all about Grace O'Malley the Irish Sea Pirate.

There are some fine eating houses here, worth checking out.
