Belfast to Connemara – a journey

Magical sights, epic adventures and delicious food stories: fill your heart on this eight-day trail from Belfast to Connemara. There will be music to remember. There will be an adventure. And always you are ready.

The North West has been called “the new England” after a visit to our iconic and distinctive towns in the Highlands, along with the incredible beauty of the coastal valleys.

The roads are all paved and covered in thousands of acres of untouched wilderness and will take you down all new and exciting paths between the seas.

The journey will take you from the beautiful and remote landscape of Cuthbert, into the heart of the great city of Dungannon, including the beautiful area of St Patrick’s Town, the beautiful and historic town of Caerphilly where you will enjoy a great tour of some of the most important historical towns in the county, and finally through historic and spectacular landscapes of the famous West Highlands.

I want to thank all the people I have met on this tour of Ireland and the love is so infectious. If you’ve come on a very special day and the only thing you had to do was to ask for your own ticket, just remember that the journey is only eight days and you’ll have a beautiful journey all your own.

Belfast to Connemara is the longest in the UK, but Dublin City to Glasgow is the longest within England.

The difference in length between the two cities is due to different routes across the sea. Dublin to Belfast is the longest road journey between the two city-lands, with the longest being the 2,739km journey from Dublin to Cork and 965km journey from Dublin to Cork City.

In both Dublin and Bristol there are four major city-lanes for services to the north. The largest is the 2km journey from Portlaoise to Co Louth and the third largest is the 1.65km journey from Portlaoise to Co Limerick.

The shortest distance between the two cities is the 515km journey between Co Armagh and Cork County Council which takes just 5 hours.

However, it’s the route between Coleraine to the west, which provides most of the routes between Ireland and Britain. It starts from the town-township of Foyle southwards to Co Louth. From Co Louth it travels back over the border to Londonderry and Co Tipperary, then to Dublin and Cork where it continues on to Belfast and Co Galway where it travels back over the border to Armagh.
