The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland's most recognizable landmarks. The best way to experience this wonder of nature is with a Professional Guide, who knows the walking trail well. On this full-day tour you will see more than just the Cliffs, as we will visit many attractions of the west coast of Ireland! Let us take you on an Irish adventure! Book this 13-hour car tour to discover Ireland's Biggest Visitor Attractions! We will have a 5-Star Driver pick you up from your accommodation in Dublin in a clean, air-conditioned car. It is a private tour, so you will travel only with your group of family/friends and enjoy the full attention of your Private Guide. The first highlight of the day will be a visit to the medieval ruins of Kilmacduagh Monastery and the Burren National Park, which is known for its unique glaciated Karst landscape. The next attraction will be the world-famous Cliffs of Moher. We provide skip-the-line tickets so you can spend more time exploring the walking trail rather than waiting in a line to the ticket office. Standing on the cliff edge you will hear the violent waves crash and gnaw at the soft shale and sandstone, a scene known from films such as ""The Princess Bride"" and ""Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."" The tour also includes additional tickets to the O'Brien’s Tower, which is the highest point of the cliffs and offers breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean and the Aran Islands in Galway Bay. The final stop will be the city of Galway, known for its great art and culture scene and the stunning Galway Cathedral.

Our Galway HOHO tour was great. The driver navigated those tiny side streets marvelously. I could not believe she made some of the turns she made. Our guide was entertaining and informative. It makes such a huge difference having a live person narrating as opposed to a recording.

Great way to explore Galway. We had a very nice bus driver. Unfortunately in the winter the bus runs every 90 minutes, so you should plan accordingly.

Perfect. We were able to see much of Galway before we decided where we wanted to explore.

It was very informative, historic facts given which made the trip very interesting!

Tour with Alex around Galway was fab! Really fun day - highly recommend.
