connemara tours?

Hi - we're going to breeze thru connemara for a day in our too brief snapshot of ireland. From a base in Galway, does anyone know of a good tour company that we could do a daytrip with and see the highlites of connemara? Our Plan 'B' is to drive ourselves, but would find it more relaxing to take one out of galway and leave the driving to someone else.

Good Bus Advise..

But it is so much nicer on your own and the Connemarra roads are very straight and relatively traffic free.

Another who seconds the 'sit back and let the driver do the driving' method! The main road to Clifden, the N59 is relatively straightforward but the little winding side roads can have surprises like a flock of sheep! Day tours will take you to all the main attractions like Kylemore Abbey etc - wish we had taken this option first as we learned and saw so much more on our bus tour than pulling over to check we were on the right beaten track.. and some of the road signs were in Irish so until the penny dropped that Clochan was Clifden we saw a lot more of the countryside (and sheep) by acciden than design!
