We'll leave Galway city circa 10 AM and travel about 41 km to the Galway / Mayo Border and visit the the site of the first Epic Battle of Moytura between the Fir Bolg and the Tuatha de Dannan. The associated monuments of the ancient Ballymagibbon Megalithic cairn (circa 3000bce), the Druidic Stone Circles, the Lia Lugha (Stone of Lu), the Plain of the Hurlers and a monument that is known as the Gods of the Neale.

This was my favorite "Galway Experience". Padraig went above and beyond, we didn't have time to do any prints, but I was totally OK with that. Instead it was a day where I learned a bit of history, learned a bit about the folklore/mythology of the land and was taken to some amazing sites where I was able to take some one of a kind photos. Padraig was learning along the way as well, we stopped to talk to some locals and heard some fantastic stories along the way. Very memorable experience.

Our experience with Padraig was incredible. He was kind, knowledgable, easy to talk to, and just a great person. He has a deep understanding and connection to all the sites we visited. Each place we went was so unique and beautiful in its own way, and the input from Padraig was extremely valuable. We really had an amazing day and we would recommend this experience to anybody and everybody.

Our time with Padraig was absolutely exceptional. He immediately made us feel welcome. The tour was very much a set-your-own-pace type of tour. He offered many different historical/heritage places for us to choose from and go to. He was informative and let us make most of the decisions. He really gave us a personal tour. It was exactly what we wanted. Would suggest!

What a wonderfully interesting experience. From the time Padraig picked us up at our hotel, we were immersed in the history and culture of the Galway to Connemara areas. We visited ancient ruins—Druidic circles & mounds, as well as ruins of castles. We took a boat across Lough Carib to Ashford Castle, had a delightful luncheon at the Quay at the Ashford lodge, then finished the day creating prints at Padraig’s studio. I only wish we’d reserved the cottage for the night as it’s idyllic setting would make a wonderful completion to the day. Thank you Padraig for a most informative and delightful experience. He is willing to pull over anywhere you choose to take pictures and is extremely flexible in allowing you to shape your itinerary. I Highly recommend Padraig and this package.

Our day with Padraig was the highlight of our trip to Ireland. He is a wealth of knowledge and took us to places we would never have found on our own. He gave us such great insight into Ireland and it’s rich history. He is a master printmaker and we had an amazing art making experience at his studio which has an incredible view. Our lives were definitely enriched from the day with Padraig.
