Overview:

Visit the Cliffs of Moher on a day excursion from Dublin to the west of Ireland, passing historic castles and ancient monuments on the way. Enjoy lunch at a traditional pub in Doolin, visit 12th-century Corcomroe Abbey, and stop at famous Galway Bay.

Description:

The Cliffs of Moher and Galway Bay are both iconic Irish sites that should be on every visitor’s itinerary. See these spectacular sights, take a short hike at the Burren, enjoy lunch at a traditional Irish pub, and see historic castles along the way.

Detailed Itinerary
06:50 Begin your adventure that will take you from Dublin to Ireland's west coast. As you head west you’ll pass the Guinness factory and Kilmainham Jail, and later the Curragh horse racing track and some of Ireland's historic castles.

10:00 Arrive in the city of Limerick, where you’ll have a short break to see King John's Castle across the River Shannon. Travel through the streets of this historic city on your way to County Clare. Stop at the Treaty Stone and learn about the history of this great city and the battles between the Irish and the English.

11:30 When you arrive at the Cliffs of Moher you’ll have an hour and a half to walk along the edge of the cliffs and take in the spectacular views. On a clear day you’ll be able to see the Aran Islands. Entrance to the site and the interactive show inside the visitor center are included in the tour price.

13:00 It's time to head to Doolin village for lunch or, weather permitting, a picnic lunch on the cliffs. Usually, the group has lunch at Fitzpatrick's Pub in Doolin, where they serve really good fish and chowder.

Doolin is renowned for its Irish music and friendly locals. It’s just up the road from Lisdoonvarna, which is quite well known for its matchmaking festival, attracting 40,000 romantic hopefuls, single farmers, and revelers annually.

14:00 After lunch, you’ll depart on a short trek around the karst hills of the Burren. The Burren is famous worldwide for its unique landscape and plant species. Be on the lookout for orchids and beautiful gentian flowers!

16:30 On your return to Dublin, you’ll head first to Galway Bay. Stop at Dunguaire Castle in Kinvara, and visit Corcomroe Abbey, a 12th-century abbey in a stunning setting. You should expect to reach Dublin city center at around 19:00.

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Glen Allen, United States on July 3rd, 2014 Although it's a long day, well worth it!


  • Rating: 5 “Great tour with a very nice guide”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Berlin, Germany on July 3rd, 2014 we enjoyed it very much.


  • Rating: 4 “Great experience”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Baden, Switzerland on April 22nd, 2014 It was a really nice trip to the cliffs of moher. The weather was pretty nice.
    Our driver was a funny guy but talked way to much during the trip.


  • Rating: 5 “Fantastic tour”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from san sebastian de los reyes, Spain on April 21st, 2014 It worth it!!!


  • Rating: 5 “Amazing!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Lynnfield, United States on March 20th, 2014 It was a long tour, but worth every minute. The tour guide, Joseph, was funny and kept the ride interesting with songs and facts about the area.
    The cliffs were beautiful as was the rest of the bay and western coast!
    Would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in Dublin!


  • Rating: 5 “If you only have one day to see the rest of Ireland...this is perfect”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Chicago, United States on March 10th, 2014 Long day, but a great way to see the east coast of Ireland.


  • Rating: 4 “A breathtaking experience”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Singapore, Singapore on December 15th, 2013 It was one of the longer tours but our guide was really thoughtful and made sure to have several rest- stops along the way. He was also gave detailed explanations coupled with good doses of humour and jokes to help with the long journey. And the Cliffs and Galway itself were simply astounding - beautiful landscapes all around! A truly memorable experience! Thank you for this.


  • Rating: 4 “The Cliffs are amazing and a must see.”

    Reviewed by Lara from Surprise, United States on October 22nd, 2013 This is a great way to see the countryside and stop at many local spots of interest. The place we stopped for lunch was so delicious that I can't stop thinking about it. The photograph possibilities are endless. Make sure to arrive early to get a good seat and don't be late because this one will leave without you.


  • Rating: 2 “The guide”

    Reviewed by Natalia from Hull, United Kingdom on September 3rd, 2013 Well, first the guide talked a lot during the trip and to be honest no one was interested about the subject he was saying. To get worse he started to sing horrible songs and believe me no one wanted to hear that. If only he was telling us the stories about the places we were visiting it would be good, but he was talking about his personal life which didn't please anyone.
    About the trip I really liked it but I thought that the time spent on the cliffs wasn't enough. 1 hour and a half you can't possibly visit the whole cliff! The place is amazing to spend just one hour over there. Takes forever to get there, I think it would be fare to spend more time visiting and enjoying the place.


  • Rating: 4 “It was an amazing journey!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Bournemouth, United Kingdom on August 26th, 2013 This was a fantastic trip with our tour. :)


  • Rating: 5 “Our tour guide was amazing...love you Mike!”

    Reviewed by Karen from Boston, United States on August 6th, 2013 Although on a paper it looks like a long day our tour guide, Mike Murphy, made it fly by. He told us about Irish history, fun facts, and would break into song throughout the trip. He was hilarious! His driving skills were amazing! I recommend you sit in the front of the bus so you don't miss anything.

    We were fortunate to have a beautiful day to see the sights and they were definitely worth the time and money. Very happy with this your!


  • Rating: 4 “It was very impressive.”

    Reviewed by Christina from Altendorf, Switzerland on July 19th, 2013 The ride to the Cliffs is very far, but for Bud our guide it was very interesting and and we could get out of the bus several times - either for Sightseeing or buying some Drinks and Food or just for fresh air.
    It was a good Change after the busy City and to see a bit of the countryside. Thanks


  • Rating: 4 “Excellent, informative bus tour, great guide - Shame about the weather”

    Reviewed by Thomas from Offenbach, Germany on January 11th, 2013 I went on the Cliffs of Moher Day trip with Extreme Ireland on January 2nd, booked only a couple of days before. There were so many people they needed two buses, which were both packed. Bus itself was comfy enough. Our guide was Mike Murphy, and he turned out to both knowledgable and entertaining. He told all those stories about places and the people of Ireland, even sang a number of songs while he was driving! To get the morale up in the face of grey and rainy weather, he also told any number of jokes. Great fellow! Unfortunately, as we arrived on the Cliffs of Moher (with a short stop in Limerick on the way), it was the foggiest day in recent memory. I was lucky: I did not linger in the visitors' centre (which, truth to tell, I found dull), but went up to the cliffs quickly. So at least I got a number of half-decent shots before, 10 minutes later, they were completely shrouded. My fellow tour members who went up later never even got to see the cliffs! Rest was fine. Recommended!

    Reviewed by Ryan from Moorpark, United States on January 10th, 2013 The sites were spectacular and I loved the trip. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable and hilarious. We really enjoyed his singing an his sense of humor. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Ireland!


  • Rating: 4 “The tour was interesting and Joseph made it more cheefull.”

    Reviewed by MICHELLE from MALTA, Malta on December 7th, 2012 There was so much things to see that 12h (the tour duration)are not enough.When we arrived at galway bay it was dark,and its a shame because its a wonderful place to visit.The food we had at the pub was simply delicious.Just a sugestion for the company give more time to visit the Galway bay.I was a bit disapointed not seeing the place in daylight.


  • Rating: 5 “Recommended!!!!”

    Reviewed by RODERIC from CHICAGO, United States on September 14th, 2012 Never saw a review prior to booking with this tour group however I wasn't disappointed and I didn't regret it. Our tour guide/bus driver, Peter (?) I'm not sure of the name I forgot, but he was a jolly old fella. He taught us some old Irish folk song on the way home. Made us go over the cliffs in the Burren region and took pictures like in the movie Titanic. Never had a dull moment during the tour, which can be boring in some tour groups like this. The weather was perfect too, sunny and clear. What an amazing view over by the Cliffs of Moher and overall an impressive way to see the west coast of Ireland. Would recommend this tour group!!


  • Rating: 5 “We enjoyed our trip with Mike Murphy he was great!”

    Reviewed by Gary from Rockford, United States on August 12th, 2012 It was a good tour; our tour guide gave us informative insight into all that we saw and experienced. We were very pleased with this company.


  • Rating: 5 “Perfekter Ausflug!!!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Frankfurt am Main, Germany on July 10th, 2014 Der Ausflug war einfach nur klasse. Die Cliffs und die Burren waren einfach atemberaubend. Insgesamt haben wir, glaube ich, sieben mal gehalten und immer wieder an verschiedenen Orten. Man hat wirklich viel von der Westküste gesehen und der Guide war auch super nett.


  • Rating: 4 “Beeindruckend und im Prinzip gut organisiert.”

    Reviewed by Helmuth from Wardenburg, Germany on June 30th, 2014 Eine schöne Tour, um bei einer Städtereise nach Dublin auch etwas vom Land zu sehen. Ein gut informierter Fahrer kannte alle wichtigen Punkte an der Strecke, so gab es mehr zu sehen, als "nur" die Cliffs von Moher. Das Restaurant für die Mittagspause war nicht so berauschend, aber vielleicht ging es auch nicht anders bei so viel Bussen und Menschen, die hier an der Westküste unterwegs sind. Schnell ging es auf jeden Fall.


  • Rating: 5 “Eine wunderschöne Tour und ein toller Tag”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Braunschweig, Germany on June 2nd, 2014 Ein absolutes Muss - es ist zwar anstrengend, aber die Tour lohnt sich auf jeden Fall. Nur zu empfehlen.


  • Rating: 4 “FANTASTICI LUOGHI E ORGANIZZAZIONE PERFETTA”

    Reviewed by GIULIA from MODICA, Italy on May 23rd, 2014 il tour era organizzato in modo perfetto, considerando il poco tempo a disposizione (è stata solo un pò breve la permanenza alle scogliere). cinsiglio davvero a tutti! guida simpatica e divertente.


  • Rating: 5 “es war eine wunderschöne tour.”

    Reviewed by Dora from spiez, Switzerland on May 15th, 2014 diese tour hat uns rundum sehr gefallen


  • Rating: 5 “Eine super Tour!”

    Reviewed by Sabine from Solingen, Germany on May 3rd, 2014 Die Tour zu den Klippen kann ich nur empfehlen! Natürlich sind die Cliffs of Moher das Highlight der Tour, aber die Eindrücke und die wunderschöne Landschaft während der gesamten Tour stehen dem in nichts nach. Man erfährt viele interessante Informationen über Land und Leute und das auf eine lebhafte und lustige Art. Wayne der Busfahrer und 'Entertainer' ist ein hervorragender Tourguide, der für die richtige Stimmung gesorgt hat. Immer wieder gerne!!!


  • Rating: 5 “Todo fue completo e impresionante.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Torre Pacheco, Spain on May 2nd, 2014 Fue una excursión bastante entretenida, sobretodo, por el guía que nos hizo el recorrido más ameno explicándonos curiosidades e historias de sitios por los que pasábamos con el bus. Los acantilados fueron impresionantes, quizás el único pero sería el tiempo que se está en los acantilados pero por lo demás GENIAL. El recorrido por la bahía también fue muy entretenido, y no tenemos que olvidarnos de los paisajes que habían. Esas cosas se ven una vez en la vida. lo recomiendo 100%


  • Rating: 4 “Faticosa ma ottima per chi ha poco tempo”

    Reviewed by Domenico from Trebisacce, Italy on April 30th, 2014 Ottimo tour per chi ha poco tempo e vuole visitare assolutamente le scogliere di Moher, la guida è simpatica ed esaustiva ma non accompagna il gruppo nelle visite, quindi bisognq informarsi da se prima di partire, paesaggi spettacolari, ne vale comunque la pena.


  • Rating: 4 “Sorprendente”

    Reviewed by Leidy from Dublin, Ireland on April 28th, 2014 Excelente lugar, Mágico! Te logras desconectar de lo que te perturbas y puedes pasar un rato agradable. La a animación del guía es siempre interactiva y además te enteras de un poco de la historia de Irlanda!


  • Rating: 5 “Tolle Sache !!! gerne wieder !”

    Reviewed by Tina from Pichlern, Austria on April 22nd, 2014 War ein toller Ausflug.. zwar anstrengend aber die Eindrücke waren toll !!
    Der Busfahrer war ein absolut typischer Ire.. und sang den ganzen Tag *gg*...
    sehr schöne Fahrt und wirklich sehr empfehlenswert !


  • Rating: 5 “Die beste Tour, die ich je gemacht habe !!”

    Reviewed by Viktoria from Leonberg, Germany on April 21st, 2014 Es hat einfach alles super geklappt: die Buchung, die Abholung und die Tour an sich waren superinteressant und keine Sekunde kam Langeweile auf. Unser Tourguide Wayne hat uns die Geschichte, Landschaft und sonstige Themen zu Irland lustig & spannend nähergebracht. Dabei wurde man von dieser wunderschönen Landschaft begleitet, über Limerick an die Cliffs of Moher (atemberaubend!!!) und der Küste entlang in den Burren Nationalpark (bizarr aber schön).
    Allerdings muss man dazu sagen dass sich alles auf Englisch abgespielt hat. Wenn man gar nicht oder schlecht Englisch spricht, verpasst man viele Infos und Geschichten zu der Landschaft, die das Ganze abrundet.
    Die Tour ist absolut empfehlenswert und das frühe Aufstehen (Tourbeginn: 6.50 Uhr) hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt. Würde ich sofort wieder machen und der Preis von 45 Euro ist total gerechtfertigt.


  • Rating: 5 “Top Tour mit sehr engagierten Fahrer + tollen Blick auf die Klippen”

    Reviewed by Max from Auenwald, Germany on April 19th, 2014 Top Tour mit sehr engagierten Fahrer Josef, der stets mit Witz und Homor diese Tour geleitet und geführt hat. Man hat nicht nur während der Fahrt einen tollen Blick auf die Landschafts Irlands sondern man hat auch durch kleinere Stopps die Möglichkeit Fotos zu machen. Die Klippen muss man gesehen diese sind Atemberaubend und toll anzusehen. Desweitern ist die Tour super Sturktueriert von Abfahrt über Sehenswürdigkeiten und Mittagessen sowohl als auch die Ankunft.

    Einfach nur super - vielen Dank an dieser Stelle von mir und meiner Familie an unseren Guide und Busfahrer Josef. Vielen Dank!!!
