This was perfect for me! I wanted to get the most out of Cliffs of Moher experience. I walked from The ferry in Doolin to the Cliffs visitor center. It was spectacular. The views better than others, in my opinion. I also did not want to spend time on a boat or more time on a bus. The bus was full of people going to Aran Island (one of the islands). The bus driver was awesome, Padder (Pather?) He told us history, stories and had lots of jokes! No problem finding meeting point or otherwise.

I did the explorer tour. you take the same bus as those going on the ferry tour except you're dropped off in Doulin to hike alone and meet up with the tour at the visitor's centre. my tour guide was John and he was absolutely lovely. I was the only person on my bus who did the explorer tour so I was solo for a large part of it which I enjoyed. be aware that you get about 5.5 hours to hike which is way more than enough time. I went from Doulin to Hags Head and back to the visitor's centre with an hour to spare (and an hour stop in the middle at the visitor's centre). a lot of things in Doulin aren't open during the middle of the week so the only bathroom is at the visitor's centre so use the bathroom when you can.

Know what you're getting yourself into! This is a kind of add on tour to the main bus group that goes to the Aran Islands as well as the Cliffs. I was the only 'explorer' in my day's group- the guide goes on to the ferry with the others. You will be going unguided on your walk, which is exactly what I was hoping for :) The trail is quite easy to navigate by yourself, and you'll probably run into kindred travelers along the way. It took me about 3 hours, walking very leisurely, and often stopping in awe, so don't be afraid to take your time. My tour guide Pather was lovely and very informative on the bus to and from Galway. Would strongly recommend!
