Full description

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 2 hours.

Go to the visitor's center 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.

This excursion was the highlight of our trip to Ireland! I highly recommend it. When we got to the Cliffs, it was VERY foggy, but for about 10 minutes it cleared out and was all worth it. The Burren, Galway & Kilmacduagh were all amazing. It was great to hear about the history of Ireland along the way. The bus was comfortable and clean. Vic & Kevin did a fantastic job of informing and keeping us entertained all day. Once again, highly recommend!

It was amazing, beautiful and so interesting. The guide was so helpful and told us so many stories. He kept it interesting on the bus and the driver was one of the best. I felt very safe as we drove through the winding and narrow roads near galway. I loved it. One of the best experiences of my life. Also you get to see a lot more than the cliffs and galway because we drove past a lot of landmarks and they even drove slower or stopped so that we could take pictures.

Rory and JP were wonderful! Despite having a mechanical issue with the bus they made the trip as great as they could. Rory gave great recommendations and even made sure we got to see Galway after the bus setback. Great day, great trip, great experience! Would definitely recommend to others!
