Maam Valley Safari
A half day (4 hours approximately) premium experience taking in an array of islands, bays and stunning mountain views as you journey up the breath taking Maam Valley.
After leaving the harbour we take a stop off at Inchagoill Island giving you the opportunity to explore the wonderful and historic surrounds for a time before we continue up Lough Corrib.
Inchagoill Island is one of the largest wooded islands on Lough Corrib and is situated halfway between Cong and Oughterard. The island is famous for having provided sanctuary to Saint Patrick for a number of years with his nephew, Lugnad, who remained on the island when Saint Patrick left. While on the island with us you can visit his grave which is known as Lugnad's Stone. This stone pillar is in the shape of a rudder as Lugnad was said to be Saint Patrick's navigator and is credited with bringing Saint Patrick to the island.
Also on the island are 2 ancient churches that you can visit, one from the 5th century called 'Teampall Phádraig' or St. Patrick's Church and the other one from the 12th century called 'Teampall na Naoimh' or Church of the Saints. These churches, a grave yard and an abandoned village are all a short walk from the pier that we land at on the island.
As we meander our way through the scenic Maam Valley, passing inbetween mountains and Castle ruins we'll enter the Bealnabrack river and transit our way to Maam pier. Here we'll stop off and visit Keane's Bar to enjoy some refreshments, the classic atmosphere of a fantastic Irish Bar and maybe sample one of their renowned toasted sandwiches which come highly recommended.
Upon leaving Keane's we'll make our way back through the rugged Connemara scenery and past the world famous Ashford Castle and it's grounds before returing to Lisloughrey harbour to complete this epic adventure experience.
