Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of Dublin for a scenic full-day drive through the counties of Kildare, Limerick and Clare, passing the 15th-century Bunratty Castle and world-class golf and surf resort of Lahinch. Your ultimate destination is the dramatic Cliffs of Moher, where you will get premium entrance to the new Atlantic Edge, an interpretive visitor experience that gives you a virtual reality birds’ eye view of cliff edge life above and below sea level. Then, walk along the cliff face and experience the power of nature at work. Feel the fresh air blowing off the ocean, and the sheer height of the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic. Visit O'Brien's Tower, standing proudly on the headland, with panoramic views of the Aran Islands and Galway Bay. Next, drive deep into the Burren, traveling along Europe’s edge! See native flora, ancient monuments, and megalithic tombs in Burren National Park, and look out for the unique Fairy Forts and Celtic Crosses. Continue around Galway Bay to medieval Galway City, passing the Blackhead Lighthouse and fishing village of Kinvara, famed for its Galway Hookers (boats). Upon arrival in Galway - described by W.B. Yeats as “The Venice of the West” - enjoy a 30-minute guided walk, and learn about the city’s trade connections with Spain. You will have some free time to explore the narrow streets on your own, or relax in boutique stores and quaint cafés. Then, sit back on the return drive to Dublin, enjoying the on board entertainment, including extracts from the show “Riverdance” and other examples of Irish culture.

Our tour guide Antonio as well as our driver Paolo are the best we have had in a long time. Both did their best to make us feel as comfortable as possible on the bus. Great tips were given throughout the day but also which places to visit after the tour in Dublin. I wish we had a little more time in Galway. We had a great lunch at The King's Head but the service took a while so we didn't really get to see much of the city itself. Cliffs of Moher was absolutely breathtaking. Enough time was given to explore. We were so lucky with the great weather. Unfortunately the phone charging station on the bus was not working.

This experience was incredible. definitely a must see while out in Ireland. A super fun and enjoyable day trip from Dublin through some of the prettiest Irish country views down to the cliffs and along the Burren coast was breathtaking. Galway was a cute city with so much to see and delicious food!

Unfortunately had a very misty day so I'll just have to trust the guide that said we went to the Cliffs of Moher. In terms of value for money, it is a big day and a trip you probably wouldn't necessarily want to do yourself for the day with the cost of petrol! Bus is very comfortable, guide and driver Joe were great.
