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.

  • Rating: 3 “Worst weather”

    Reviewed by Alex from Muggia, Italy on November 8, 2014 It was the worst Day in Ireland in This year! Good places, but you could delay the trip: it was impossible to visit anything with This rain!


  • Rating: 5 “Great Day at the awsome Cliffs of Moher”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany on November 3, 2014 Booking this tour you will arrive at the cliffs very early, I suspect it will be swarming with Tourists a few hours later (at least during season). The Cliffs are just amazing and we had enough time (about 1 1/2 hours) for exploration.
    The rest of the tour isn't really worth mentioning, but we had a lot of great views of Ireland from the bus, some nice picture oportunities and our driver kept us well entertained. I suspect that the other tour option (including the Burren and Galway) might be even better, but I suspect that tour gives you less time at the Cliffs.
    The meal was typically british cuisine but expensive and mediocre, so you might prefere brining your own lunch.
