I had a great trip. Our guide was Bud, a super cheerful guy who made what could feel like a very long bus ride a lot of fun and fly by! He gave good tips for where to go on the stops. The cliffs are beautiful and we got enough time to trot around and take photo's. We had a tasty lunch in the pub with very quick service as well. The ride from the cliffs to Galway is full of gorgeous views. The stop in Galway was just long enough to have a good stroll around the centre. I would 100% recommend going on this trip.

The guide and trip overall was well planned and I felt that the price was a good value for the whole trip. We got to see a lot and Kevin was very funny and knowledgeable. I wish we had 20-30 minutes more at the cliffs but besides that it was wonderful.

The cliffs are beautiful and the bus ride was not too bad. This is definitely not a slow paced trip. I felt rushed the entire time. I would recommend making this a two day trip. We had just under and hour in Galway. We didn’t have enough time to use the toilet and finish our meal.
