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.

Luke and Gabor made this experience amazing. I have mad respect for the bus drivers: especially, in Ireland! Gabor was able to maneuver a big tour bus through tight roads with ease while being able to abide by traffic laws! Luke was very lively, and made some very funny jokes on top of explaining the history of the areas that we toured as well as providing some really interesting insight on areas that we passed! Very well executed tour by these two, and I’d highly recommend doing this tour! Hopefully you can get the duo of Luke and Gabor running the tour! They are also both really friendly, and super fun to talk to both during and after the tour as well!

This is a MUST DO trip if you’re staying in Dublin. You get to see the beautiful Irish countryside on your way to the cliffs. We had THE BEST guide and driver (Derek and Tomas). They both made this trip truly unforgettable and shared so much knowledge about this beautiful country. You spend lots of time at the cliffs! You get a little teaser of Galway which made me want to come back and stay there. Best day trip I’ve ever been on!

SPOILER REVIEW. Recommended trip, driver Tomas and guide Derek perfect. They arrived before the indicated time, they told us very important and curious pieces of Irish history, politics and economy. They followed us throughout the tour, reminding us of the times indicated and advising us on routes and places. The first stop is the Barack Obama breakfast bar. Then we move on to the Cliffs of Moher having an hour and a half available for a visit. From there it takes another hour to reach Galway and visit the city. It was really all calculated, organized and well prepared. If I had to find a fault I would only say the short time spent at the various attractions. In any case I would do it again!
