Went on the Connemara Safari Tour this summer and it was a great experience. Very friendly bunch of hill-walkers (from all over the world) and a very comprehensive and knowledgeable guide in Gerry McCloskey. But a word of warning - one or two in our party were not fit enough for the long walks and hikes - particularly on Inisturk, which is very hilly, and some of the accommodation left a lot to be desired - after a long and very wet walk, all you want is a nice hot bath/shower - in the 'hotel' in Inisboffin all we got was luke warm water in a low grade hotel. Having said that, the food was great, the stay at the Abbeyglen Castle hotel was fabulous, the views magnificent and the craic was mighty. But this is no holiday for the weak-legged! Many of the walks will take you over very rough terrain (hiking boots required, not runners) - you'd need to be well practised in hill-walking and be able to keep up with the fittest of them. The pace is not that fast but the walks are long. It is extremely inexpensive for such a wonderful tour - and you really do feel so much the better for having had such an indepth guide of a most beautiful part of Ireland. Be prepared for the rain though, it's guaranteed! Well worth it, but get fit first.
