Full description

Your first stop is the 13th-century King John’s Castle in Limerick. The castle itself was built by the notorious King John, brother of Richard the Lionheart, and it is widely regarded as one of the best preserved Norman castles in Europe. 

Learn about the medieval era of Ireland, from the Viking invaders to the Lords of Ireland. Following your visit to King John’s Castle, drive through Lisdoonvarna, home of the oldest matchmaking festival in the world. Pass Kilfenora, home to one of Ireland’s most popular traditional Céilí bands.

Travel along the Wild Atlantic Way, brimming with magical views, including over the Aran Islands and the surfing beaches of Fanore and Galway Bay. During the coastal drive, go off the beaten track and view the famous Baby Cliffs of Moher.

Shorter than the Cliffs of Moher, these smaller cliffs offer the ideal opportunity to see whales and dolphins. Gaze over the magical limestone landscape known as the Burren region. 

Dating back over 300 million years, this rugged landscape is home to over 1,100 species of plants ranging from arctic flora to Mediterranean perennials and is one of the most fascinating regions of Western Europe.

Stop at the traditional village of Doolin, boasting some of the best Irish pubs and restaurants. Order a local dish for lunch, such as Doolin’s famous seafood chowder, soda bread, and freshly brewed Guinness. Arrive at the world-famous Cliffs of Moher. Enjoy a relaxing walk and breathtaking views.

The cliffs offer a stunning view of Galway Bay, the Aran Islands, and the rugged Connemara wilderness. You will also have the chance to see many of the 30,000 birds nesting in colonies along the cliffs and explore the award-winning Atlantic Edge Exhibition. 

Return to Dublin at approximately 7:30 PM, where you will be dropped off in downtown Dublin, or at the same location that you were collected from.

It is well worth the day trip from Dublin to see the Cliffs of Moher. The other parts of this tour are just fluff in comparison. King John’s castle - the history inside is good. Some talking characters on screen make it more interesting. Outside there are opportunities to interact (learn how to sword fight). Doolin-no time to explore this place. The tour takes you to the ferries to see the cliffs from below. Be prepared for the extra 25€ fee. Restaurant was good here Cliffs - stunning! Time was too short here Bunratty Castle and Blarney Woolen Mills - this is clearly a stop to get people to spend money. Waste of time.

Good experience. Jackie was grate very nice and explaining every part of the journey. We leaned so much from just listing on the bus ride. The first castle museum was lovely. The boat ride was so nice too! The crew came to explain to us about the different birds and nature. The cliffs are breathtaking. The last part was slightly too much but again Jackie was amazing. Thanks for the tour we will definitely recommend

We had an amazing tour with Jacky today traveling to the Cliffs of Moher. We got lucky with a great guide & beautiful weather. He was so helpful in ensuring we had time to thoroughly explore all of our stops + had time to go to the bathroom! I loved all of the trivia & how personal the trip was. Our tour wasn’t sold out so we had lots of room on the van to spread out. I can’t say enough how appreciative we were that we had a knowledgeable guide & a safe van to ride in. Jacky was the best!!
