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.

It was a breathtaking experience. Among the rain, I was able to see the rainbow on top of the hill at the cliff. What a good sign for me. Thanks for the beautiful explanation and safe driving by Aishling and Pat. You guys did a super great job. A must visit trip in Ireland.

Tara & James made a wonderful day for us all. The sights were breathtaking and the background that Tara provided touched my heart. It is one thing to learn it in school and quite another to look Ireland’s history in the face. James was equally impressive with his mastery of a large bus in small spaces. Both are delightful. Thanks for making my trip to Ireland so memorable!
