Travel West By Train
This one day tour from Dublin offers a unique opportunity to visit Inis Mór, the largest of the three Aran Islands and one of the most popular vacation destinations in Ireland. Set on the West Coast of Ireland in the mouth of Galway Bay, Inis Mór is a bastion of traditional Irish language, culture and music, unique in its geology, archaeology and history.
Check in for 07:35 departure from Dublin Heuston Station. Opened in 1844 as the headquarters of the Great Southern & Western Railway, it is now the official principal station of Iarnród Éireann, Ireland’s national railway company.
As your train departs, it will travel in a south westerly direction, through Dublin's western suburbs and then through the lush fertile countryside of Co. Kildare. Your journey will take you through the Curragh, which is famous for its racecourse, home of the Irish Derby, and there are many stud farms in the vicinity. This route takes you into the midlands and the Bog of Allen, vast tracts of peat-land. Before then, you will pass through the County Town of Tullamore and then to Clara across the gentle farmlands of north Offaly.
The train crosses the Shannon, which marks the historic border between the province of Leinster and Connacht – the historic province of the West of Ireland. You are now heading due west, surrounded by peat bog on both sides of the line. On the last few kilometers before Galway, you will get your first glimpse of Galway Bay.
Arrive into Galway, where you will be brought to the Aer Arann mini-coach for transfer to Connemara Airport for your short flight to Inis Mór.
Irish is the spoken language on the Aran Islands, although the locals will be more than happy to speak to you in English. For many, the highlight of the tour is the formidable pre-Christian fort of Dún Aonghusa, with spectacular sea-cliffs on the western side and unspoiled views of the Atlantic Ocean. Flight times may vary occasionally to cater for the numbers flying.
Notes on Aran: Your tour of Inis Mór begins and ends at the island's airport and includes stops at 'Seven Churches' (15 minutes), Dún Aonghusa (75 minutes) and Kilronan for lunch (45 minutes).
Should weather conditions be such as to curtail flights you will be taken on an alternative tour to Connemara and refunded the difference. No further refund available should you decide not to go to Connemara for any reason.
On arrival back at Galway, you will be brought to the Tourist Office. You now should have some time in Galway city centre for exploring and/or shopping.
You will be returning to Dublin Heuston Station at 09:45pm.

Eligibility The Services are intended solely for persons who are 13 or older. Any access to or use of the Services by anyone under 13 is expressly prohibited. By accessing or using the Services you represent and warrant that you are 13 or older. The Services can be used to facilitate the listing, reviewing, searching, comparing, meeting other people, entering contests and booking of tours and activities ("Group Tours"). Such Group Tours are included in Listings on the Services by Operators. You may view Listings as an unregistered visitor to the Services; however, if you wish to book a Group Tour, you must provide your email address. As stated above, Irish Central makes available a platform or marketplace with related technology for Travelers and Operators to meet online, write reviews, search, compare, enter contests and arrange for bookings of Group Tours. Irish Central is not an operator of tours, activities or other Group Tours, nor is it a provider of group tours or activities and Irish Central does not own, sell, resell, furnish, provide, manage and/or control any transportation, tour or travel services. Irish Central's responsibilities are limited to: (i) facilitating the availability of the Services and (ii) serving as the limited agent of each Operator for the purpose of accepting payments from Travelers on behalf of the Operator. PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS STATED ABOVE, THE SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE USED TO FACILITATE THE BOOKING OF GROUP TOURS. IRISH CENTRAL CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY LISTINGS AND THE CONDITION, LEGALITY OR SUITABILITY OF ANY GROUP TOURS. IRISH CENTRAL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY AND ALL LISTINGS AND GROUP TOURS. ACCORDINGLY, ANY BOOKINGS WILL BE MADE AT THE TRAVELER'S OWN RISK.
Irish Central does not endorse any Members or any Group Tours. In addition, although these Terms require Members to provide accurate information, we do not attempt to confirm, and do not confirm, any Member's purported identity. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others who you contact via the Services. We will not be responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members. By using the Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from Irish Central with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members via the Services regarding any bookings or Listings made by you. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by an Operator against Irish Central regarding the remittance of payments received from a Traveler by Irish Central on behalf of an Operator, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled "Limitation of Liability".
Bookings and Financial Terms for Operators
If you are an Operator and a booking is requested for your Group Tour via the Services, you will be required to either confirm or decline the booking using Irish Central's Messaging System within the specified timeframe (which is generally within 48 hours of when the booking is requested, as determined by Irish Central in its sole discretion) or the booking request will be automatically cancelled. If you are unable to confirm or decide to decline a booking of an Group Tour within the specified timeframe, any amounts collected by Irish Central for the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Traveler's credit card and any pre-authorization of such credit card will be released. You understand and agree that once a Traveler requests a booking of your Group Tour, the price for such booking may not be altered after you confirm the booking without first obtaining the Travelers consent which must be done using Irish Central's Messaging System. If you have not yet confirmed the Traveler's booking you can amend the price, details, add discounts, food funds, single supplements and other local payment so long as you advise the Traveler of these changes via the Irish Central Messaging System before you confirm the booking to allow Travelers to consent to your changes. Any attempts to take the conversation or transaction outside Irish Central's Messaging System before a booking has been confirmed may result in suspension or cancellation of your Account. When a booking is requested via the Services, we may share with you the first and last name of the Traveler who has requested the booking in the Irish Central Messaging System. The Deposit amount displayed on the booking page is set by you. Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Group Tour Cost. The Group Tour Cost and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the "Total Cost". The amounts due and payable by a Traveler solely relating to an Operator's Group Tour are the "Group Tour Cost". Please note that it is you and not Irish Central which determines the Group Tour Cost and you agree this Cost will be exactly the same Cost stated on your website. Unless otherwise stated, if the Departure is 60 days or more from the booking date, Irish Central will only collect the Deposit at the time of booking confirmation (i.e. when you confirm the booking within the specified timeframe). Unless otherwise stated, the Balance of Payment (defined as the Group Tour Cost minus the Deposit) will be automatically collected from the Traveler by us, 60 days prior to the departure date. After you confirm a booking, you are responsible for invoicing Irish Central for the original tour price listed in the IrishCentral.com tour listing at the point of booking request (which must correspond to the pricing on your website) minus Irish Central's Commission fee. Invoices are to be emailed to travel@IrishCentral.com. Invoices must have a payment due date of the 5th business day of the next calendar month after the tour departure date. Each tour booking must have its own invoice. Irish Central will pay the Net Amount (defined as being the Group Tour Cost minus the Commission Fee) to your nominated bank account. We are not responsible for delays in remitting Group Tour Fees, which can vary based on the bank, currency, location, etc. We are responsible for emailing the Traveler with a booking receipt for their payments. You are responsible for emailing any documentation and vouchers to the Traveler.
Appointment of Irish Central as Payment Agent for Operator
Each Operator hereby appoints Irish Central as the Operator's limited agent solely for the purpose of collecting payments made by Travelers on behalf of the Operator. Each Operator agrees that payment made by a Traveler to Irish Central shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Operator and the Operator will make the Group Tour available to Traveler in the agreed upon manner as if the Operator has received the Part Payment. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Operator, Irish Central assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Operator. Operators acknowledge and agree that Irish Central reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to introduce and collect other fees from you in accordance with the Modification Section of these Terms. Please note that Irish Central will provide notice of new fees via the Services, prior to implementing such new features.
Bookings and Financial Terms for Travelers
The prices shown are converted to USD to provide an indication of the approximate cost. However, due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates, the actual total you pay may change when you book your tour.
Commission Fees only apply to Operators
In consideration for providing the Services, Irish Central collects a commission fee only from Operators ("Commission Fees"). A Commission Fee is a percentage of the amount of the Group Tour Cost or the Forfeited Tour Cost (only applicable for tours cancelled by the traveler - see section below). Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Commission Fee. Commission Fees are deducted from the Group Tour Cost or the Forfeited Tour Cost before remitting the balance to the Operator (please note that we will not be responsible for delays in remitting payouts, which can vary based on the bank, currency, location, etc). Balances will be remitted by Irish Central to Operators via direct deposit or other payment methods described on the Site or via the Application, in the Operator's currency of choice, depending upon the selections the Operator makes via the Services. Please note that for any payments by Irish Central, we will pay our bank's costs and you are responsible to pay your bank's costs. Except as otherwise provided herein, Commission Fees are non-refundable.
General Booking and Financial Terms Traveler Cancellations, Refunds and Complaints
If, as a Traveler, you cancel your requested booking before the requested booking is confirmed by an Operator, Irish Central will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the requested booking within a commercially reasonable time (7-10 business days). You agree to pay Irish Central the Deposit for any booking requested in connection with your Irish Central Account if such requested bookings are confirmed by the Operator. Cancellation, Refund and Complaint policies vary by Operator and should be read in detail before requesting your booking. If a cancellation is required, it must be done by sending an email to email@example.com with the name of the tour you want to cancel and for the reason. Neither Irish Central nor the operators selling their tours on IrishCentral.com offer or pay any discounts or refunds for missed or unused services which were missed or unused by the traveler due to no fault of Irish Central, or operators working with Irish Central, which shall include any termination of the traveler's participation in the tour due to the traveler's own fault, negligence or breach of these Terms. All traveler complaints about their experience on tour will be passed onto the tour operator's team to resolve. Irish Central is committed to working with tour operators to achieve a high level of service. If the response time and/or response quality of the tour operator however continue to fall below acceptable timing and quality despite our working together to rectify any issues, Irish Central reserves the right to remove the operators' tour listings from Irish Central.com Marketplace, Affiliate websites and remove any Applications provided by us.
Unforeseen Circumstances Operator Cancellations and Refunds
If an Operator cancels a confirmed booking made via the Services, (i) Irish Central will refund any Payment for such booking to the applicable Traveler within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Traveler may receive an email or other communication from Irish Central containing alternative Listings and other related information. If the Traveler requests a booking from one of the alternative Listings this will be treated like a new group tour booking. If an Operator cancelled a confirmed booking and you, as a Traveler, have not received an email or other communication from Irish Central, please contact Irish Central at travel@IrishCentral.com.
Cancellation in the Event of Inclement Weather
Certain Group Tours may be weather-dependent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of inclement weather, the Operator has the discretion as to whether the weather conditions will prevent the Group Tour from taking place. As an Operator, if you need to cancel an Group Tour for reasons of inclement weather, you must contact the Traveler and Irish Central (at travel@Irishcentral.com) as early as possible. Subject to the Traveler's consent, the Operator and the Traveler may choose to reschedule the Group Tour for another date. If the Group Tour cannot be rescheduled, as a Traveler, please contact Irish Central so we may assist in finding a replacement, non-weather-dependent Group Tour. For clarity, in the event the alternative Group Tour is of a higher price than the former, you may be responsible for any difference in price. In the event the alternative Group Tour is of a lower price, you may be entitled to a partial refund for the difference. As a Traveler, if you have contacted Irish Central as provided above and Irish Central is unable to find you a replacement Group Tour, Irish Central may refund the Payment for such booking to the Traveler within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your applicable Tax reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors. Irish Central cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members of the Services. Additionally, please note that each Operator is responsible for determining local indirect Taxes and for including any applicable Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings.
As part of the Services, Irish Central may provide a feature through which Travelers may view prices for various Listings in foreign currencies. You understand and agree that these views of prices are for informational purposes only and may not be the official local price for the Operator's Listings. If you (as a Traveler) request a booking, you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding amount of the Payment, if your booking is confirmed by an Operator. The currency in which you will be charged may be determined by Irish Central based on the payment method you select and the location of the Group Tour in the Listing you are booking. If the currency in which you will be charged is different from the currency chosen by the Operator to receive payment, Irish Central will be responsible for the required currency conversion processing, including the costs thereof, which will be calculated based on the most current applicable foreign exchange rate that Irish Central has uploaded to the Site as of the date and time that your booking is confirmed (the "Applicable Exchange Rate"). You acknowledge that the Applicable Exchange Rate used for currency conversion processing may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs because: (i) although Irish Central would update the Applicable Exchange Rate on a regular basis, it would not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate. For the avoidance of doubt, Irish Central would retain any profits (and will bear any losses) that result from such currency conversion processing due to changes in the applicable foreign exchange rate between the date your booking is confirmed and the date Irish Central makes payment to an Operator.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for compliance with any and all laws, rules, regulations, and Tax obligations that may apply to your use of the Site, Application, Services and Content. Irish Central reserves the right to remove, without warning, any user-contributed content considered not to be in compliance with our company values, including inappropriate, irrelevant or derogatory material.

when acting as a Traveler or otherwise, recruit or otherwise solicit any Operator or other Member to join third party services or websites that are competitive to Irish Central, without Irish Central's prior written approval (for clarity and without diminishing any of Irish Central's rights to enforce these Terms, Irish Central may cancel such offending Member's Irish Central Account, permanently block such Member from access to the Service, and take any legal action Irish Central deems appropriate against such Member, including by prosecuting such Member to the fullest extent of the law); impersonate any person or entity, or falsify or otherwise misrepresent yourself or your affiliation or non-affiliation with any person or entity, or otherwise post any reviews that exhibit a conflict of interest (for example, by posting reviews for your or your employer's Listing); use automated scripts to collect information or otherwise interact with the Services; use the Services to find an Operator or Traveler and then complete a booking of an Group Tour transaction independent of the Services, whether or not you do so in order to circumvent the obligation to pay any Commission Fees related to Irish Central's provision of the Services;

In particular, but without limitation, the Application may not be exported or re-exported: (a) into any United States embargoed countries.
If you participate in an Group Tour with an Operator who you feel is acting or has acted inappropriately, including but not limited to, anyone who (i) engages in offensive, violent or sexually inappropriate behavior, (ii) you suspect of stealing from you, or (iii) engages in any other disturbing conduct, you should immediately report such person to the appropriate authorities and then to Irish Central by contacting us with your police station and report number at travel@IrishCentral.com; provided that your report will not obligate us to take any action beyond that required by law (if any) or cause us to incur any liability to you.

For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the United States, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in the United States for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
General The failure of Irish Central to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Irish Central. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

Like many platforms, we may also automatically receive general information that is contained in our server log files such as your IP address and cookie information. Information about how advertising may be served on this site (if at all) is set forth below. Irish Central uses a 3rd party payment gateway called CheckFront to ensure your personal and sensitive credit card information is securely stored. Your credit card details are NOT stored on Irish Central, instead your information is securely stored and encrypted with CheckFront. CheckFront are fully PCI-DSS compliant and to transfer information between Irish Central and CheckFront we use a 256bit SSL certificate from Amazon. In layman terms this means when you save or update your credit card details on Irish Central, these details are being securely stored within CheckFront’s fully secure vaults to ensure your information cannot be used by malicious 3rd parties. Irish Central and its employees are unable to view your cardholder information as CheckFront truncates your credit card details.
