Driving and Cycling tour of the Father Ted locations in County Clare, Ireland

This tour will take you to a selection of the Father Ted locations in County Clare, starting in Ennistymon, which is 30 minutes drive from Ennis and about an hour from Galway. There is no ferry travel involved as all of the locations are on the mainland.
