Mail Cab

By the 1840’s provincial and market towns across Ireland were connected by Charles Bianconi’s horse-drawn cars. With the arrival of the Midland and Great Western Railway (MGWR) this monopoly ended and tourism began to grow. This was further aided by the extension of the railway to Clifden in 1895, this allowed Victorians to purchase package tours in England and experience the wild beauty of Connemara for themselves.
