Full description

Embark on a guided day trip to discover the iconic Cliffs of Moher by bus. Visit Galway and its stunning surrounding landscape and see famous landmarks, including Dunguaire Castle and Kilmacduagh Monastery.

Depart Dublin at 6:45 AM and journey through the flat open plain of the Curragh. Pass the Irish National Stud thoroughbred horse breeding facility as your guide shares a wealth of history and information.

Head to the ruins of Kilmacduagh Monastery and its roundhouse—unique for the way it leans over by more than 2 feet. Spend 15-20 minutes here. Then, arrive at the Cliffs of Moher for a view of the Atlantic Ocean and explore on your own for around 1.5 hours.

Go to the visitor's centre for the interactive Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience with a large multimedia screen displaying a bird's-eye view from the cliffs, and a video from the underwater caves.

Next, discover the lunar landscapes of The Burren with a 15–20-minute visit and hear about the many secrets of this atypical landscape, home to the warmest ground temperature in Ireland.

Arrive in the city of Galway, where you will have around 1 hour to explore on your own. Discover its old-world charm on cobblestone streets that evoke an authentic Ireland of times gone by.

Then drive along the coastal route of the Wild Atlantic Way to Kinvara, passing Dunguaire Castle and the 12 Bens mountain range along the way. Return to Dublin and get dropped off at the meeting point at around 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

Die Reise an sich war sehr gut organisiert. Unser Guide Steven war super. Sehr humorvoll und hatte alles im Griff. Bewundernswert war auch der Fahrer Fred, der den Bus so souverän fährt, als wäre er auf den engen Straßen mit einem Smart unterwegs. Ich muss nur leider einen Punkt abziehen, weil man am Ende der Fahrt ganz woanders rausgelassen wird, als man eingestiegen ist. Im Angebot heißt es, Ziel ist der Treffpunkt in Dublin. Da gehe ich davon aus, dass ich auch dort wieder rausgelassen werde. Leider war es am anderen Ende der Innenstadt. Das finde ich nicht ok. Ansonsten ist der Ausflug sehr empfehlenswert

Our host was an exciting and eager guide with a wealth of knowledge and passion for the history of this great Country. It’s apparent him and the driver take great care in their passengers, their experience, and their comfort. I’m overwhelmed with joy at how we’ve spent our entire day- especially with 6 hours of the tour being spent on a bus! It’s truly been a rewarding experience to see Ireland through the eyes of a local and I’ll carry this experience in my heart back in my home country. Also- Stephen’s recommendation for a fresh/hot plate of fish and chips was almost as delicious as the creamy Guinness I drank to wash it all down. If you’re nervous about traveling with a guided tour- this company will take great care of you.

This was a great tour! The guide was amazing and the bus driver was fantastic. We were on a number of tight and curvy roads with beautiful views and the driver navigated them perfectly, without making everyone feel sick. Our guide, Derick, was very knowledgeable, personable and funny. I would go on another tour with the pair of them again! They were truly fantastic!
