Full description
Depart Galway and journey through the lunar landscape of The Burren en route to the Cliffs of Moher. Pass pretty villages like Kilcolgan and Ballyvaughan en route to Doolin. Board the ferry for a 30-minute crossing to Inisheer, and keep a look out for bottlenose dolphins on the way to the smallest of the Aran Islands. Get some free time to explore the ancient sites at your own pace. Use the time to hire a bike or explore by pony and trap. Cruise beneath the Cliffs of Moher on the return ferry crossing. Then, travel to the eco-friendly visitors center, where you can stroll along the cliff top before the return trip to Galway via the famous "matchmaking" town of Lisdoonvarna.

Great day trip from Galway. Left promptly with covid regulations well observed. Short cruise to Inis Oirr in the Aran Isles and along the Cliffs of Moher followed by a trip to the Visitors Centre. Jerry our driver and tour guide was excellent and very informative throughout the trip. Would recommend.

If you have limited time and want to see multiple things in a day, then you would likely enjoy this tour. A large portion of the day is in transportation (bus and boats) but the scenery and commentary from Gerry made it seem like there was always something to learn. The weather was mixed when my cousin and I went and we had moments of drizzle, fog, and some sun… it’s unavoidable in Ireland and even despite the less than ideal conditions, we had a good time.

It was a fabulous tour and Jerry could not have been a better guide and driver. Loved how informative he was and his jokes were not bad either. But his songs were the best! Everything went smoothly and the trip to Inis Oirr, the ferry ride to the cliffs and trip to the top of the cliff was a can’t miss opportunity if you’re staying in Galway!
