Full description

Discover the history and landscapes of Ireland on a day trip from Galway with a local driver/guide. Marvel at centuries-old buildings and striking natural features before taking in one of the best views the country has to offer from the Cliffs of Moher. Stop for plenty of photo opportunities.

Meet your trained driver/guide outside the Kinlay Hostel. Climb aboard the coach to head to your first stop, Dunguaire Castle on the outskirts of Kinvara. Looking at the 16th-century medieval tower house castle, you'll discover why it is one of the most photographed castles in the whole of Ireland.

Then, drive through the unique glaciokarst landscape of the Burren and past the 12th-century Corcomroe Abbey, a Cistercian monastery noted for its distinguished carvings and rich ornamentation. Then, follow the Wild Atlantic Way as it wends its way along the coast of County Clare.

Pass Black Head and Fanore Strand, Discovery Points on the Wild Atlantic Way, from where you can marvel at views of the three Aran Islands, Inishmore (Inis Mor), Inishmann (Inis Meain), and Inisheer (Inis Oirr), locking in Galway Bay, and in the distance the Connemara mountains.

Next, stop for photos at Doolin pier. Feel the Atlantic wind in your face and admire the power of the sea as it crashes onto the shore. After you've worked up an appetite on the beach, tuck into lunch at the Doolin Hotel (not included). Try any of the local seafood dishes. You won't be disappointed.

Then, head to your main stop of the day, the Cliffs of Moher. Enjoy 2 hours at this Signature Point along the Wild Atlantic Way. Admire one of Ireland's most spectacular sights. Rising 214 meters out of the Atlantic Ocean, the Cliffs of Moher offer one of the most amazing views in Ireland.

After the Cliffs of Moher, return to Galway via Lisdoonvarna, famous for its annual matchmaking festival.

The driver/ guide was very skillful and pleasant. He told us interesting facts, and it was easy to understand him. The tour was amazing. The cliffs were awsome! I really recommend it. Bring good shoes and a raincoat just in case. We had good use of our coats, since there were some showers.

Overall, this was a fairly good experience, but be prepared to spend most of your day on the bus. Damien is a great guide and definitely knows his stuff. If you're looking for just a trip to the Cliffs I would recommend just taking a local bus from Galway to the Cliffs instead of this tour. You spend most of your time at smaller look outs/sights throughout the countryside and there's just an hour of dead time in Doolin for a pretty expensive lunch. You'll get just about 2 hours total at the Cliffs and I personally wish I had more time there, but that's not a fault of the tour necessarily, just a personal preference. Smooth and easy experience, I just probably would take the local bus there instead next time. I don't feel like the smaller lookouts/spots were worth the extra costs/time on the bus.

Beautiful bus tour. It rained so couldn't enjoy the Cliffs fully, but the visitor centre had some interesting info too. Only thing I didn't enjoy about this trip was that the driver Chris rambled on incessantly and really could have cut the talking to about a quarter, so we could just enjoy the beautiful drive.
