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.

Anthony and Larry were and excellent tour guide and driver. The drive was long but safe, and Anthony kept it interesting with history and jokes along the way. We were lucky with great weather, and the views at the cliff were fantastic. There was adequate time at each stop. We had some great fish and chips in Galway that Anthony recommended, and had time to explore the Galway Christmas market! Great tour, excellent value.

A lovely tour with a lot jam packed into one day! Our guide, Maeve was fantastic and gave us interesting history and cultural stories and facts throughout the day. The cliffs were truly stunning as was the Burren landscape. Only complaint was there wasn’t enough time to explore Galway city!

Danny and Nicolas gave us a great tour! Although we had a bit of a rough start, their optimism was contagious and made for a good journey. The weather was perfect, and I felt we had enough time at each stop. Danny was super helpful, offering suggestions tailored to the experience we wanted. And Nicolas did a great job navigating our bus through the thin roads.
