Tommy, our bus driver/tour guide, was wonderful! I thought the tour of Galway was a bit short, but it is a small area to be fair. The drive to the cliffs was so beautiful. The cliffs themselves were also gorgeous, of course. It was crucial to my experience to have gone on a day with good weather. It's definitely worth timing your trip to avoid rain. Tommy took us on the Wild Atlantic Way on the way back to Galway. I didn't know that route existed before he took us there but I LOVED it so much. That was actually my favorite part.
It was a holistic approach to seeing all of Ireland in one day. From coast to coast, Dublin to Galway and the Cliffs of Moher, the entire experience was a grand one, and my friend visiting from out of town loved it. We felt we had seen a LOT of Ireland by the end of the program, and it was only a day long. Nor was it too tiring to do, though the Cliffs can be windy and a bit of a hike depending on how far you want to go. Overall, a five star experience I can never praise enough.
The travel was perfect, on-time pick-up, the driver was very friendly, everything goes how it was scheduled on the itinerary. Make sure to bring an umbrella and the right clothes and shoes, the wheater can be unpredictable. If you are lucky you are going to be able to see the cliffs. As a suggestion if you are vegan/vegetarian bring some food with you, it may be a little difficult to find something.
It was amazing except for the short time in the main attraction. We stayed 1:30 hour in the Cliffs and it was not enough as you have to walk a lot. The restaurant takes too long to get your order so you spend too much time for lunch. Apart from that the rest was perfect. The driver/guide is a very nice guy.
We took the bus from Dublin and ended up staying in Galway at the end of the day. Our guide, Tommy, offered phenomenal stories and facts throughout the bus ride and on the walking tour of Galway. The stops along the way were beautiful; I could not have imagined a better day.
