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.

The tour to the Cliffs of Moher is very worthwhile, and the weather cooperated. The onward journey to Galway overland is wonderful, there is a lot to see besides the small roads. Our guide Patrick told us a lot about the country and its people, legends and stories. Marko's driving skills are also impressive, and he always got us safely through the tightest corners. A little tip: the seats on the left have the best view!

Brian, our guide, is a hoot ! He combines humor with history and trivia. He kept us entertained with stories ! He included facts about each place we visited that made it easy to navigate and skip places that would have otherwise been unproductive for us to visit given the limited time at each place. These country lanes are nearly impossible to go through with 2-way traffic but Fred, our driver, was completely reliable. People can be assured of safety with his driving. The Cliffs of Moher was spectacular! The viewpoint at Ballyreen was outworldly. The connection of the Great Famine and the walls at Burrens was eye-opening. Great shots of the ruins and active cemetery at the Abbey of Kilmacduagh. Finally Galway was special with its food and quaint shops. Great tour!
