Haunted Bog road tour. Galway. Private guided. 2 hours

star-5

Ireland has perhaps, more than its fair share of ghost stories and few are more persistent than the grim tale of Connemara's haunted Bog Road. Take this scary tour to see if the tales are real? The Bog Road was originally the main road to Galway before the founding of Clifden. A guesthouse on the road, was the scene of many gruesome murders, which has given rise to many tales, mostly tall… As one version of the story goes, there was a hostelry here called the Halfway House. Back in the 1790s, it was run by a brother and sister who made a business of welcoming solo travellers and then murdering them, (at the stroke of midnight…naturally) and disposing their bodies in the surrounding bog lakes and pocketing their belongings. It is believed to be ghosts of these hapless victims - whose bodies the ghoulish siblings fed to the windswept bog land - which give this lonely stretch of road its spectral reputation - the tale of the Red-Haired Girl at the Inn is a folklore classic….

Shore Excursion: Connemara Wild Atlantic Way Sea Kayaking Adventure
"This trip was cancelled for very good reasons not weather though and Viator and its sub-contracted company for this trip handled the situation amazingly! We were very impressed and went on to do a couple other things suggested by the company which were really wonderful. Viator refunded immediately which I have in 35 yrs traveling and living overseas have never seen and they were full of apologies. I would HIGHLY recommend using this company and if they treat everyone each time as they did us it will be an extremely successful company. The Kayaking trip by the way is not in the open water but, you Kayak through caves! We will be back to just do this tour in nothing else in Galway!"..."
