What to Expect

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.

Lovely day to see the nature and history of Ireland

Our tour started at a different spot than announced. But it was no problem to find the bus. The tourguide, David informed us about very interesting facts about the places we visited and their history. He also tried to entertain the people by a irish music quiz but mst of the peple didn't seem interested. Anyway it was a great tour, where someone can escape the city and see the beautiful nature of Ireland. We can highly recommend a bus tour with Irish Day Tours

Amaizing!!! Higly recommended!

In this case the driver was the guide. Our driver and guide, Patrick was excellent, informative without being boring, very careful with all and each customer. A very talented guy who loves Ireland and loves what he is doing. Just keep this standard. To get at the cliffs in a rainy day precisely at the moment when the fog went away was not an easy job, but he did it.

Great trip, but long

Joey, our driver and tour guide was brilliant. Very entertaining and knowledgeable about the history of Ireland. The only complaint is that the trip was prolonged because at every stop at least one tourist didn't get back to the bus on time so we had to wait. Very annoying!

The driver was really sweet and funny throughout the whole trip. Unfortunately we didn't see the cliffs due to fog and rain. Still it was a great day. We were well entertained throughout the day, the driver's knowledge of Irish history was massive.
