Has a really great day in the Connemara National Park. Our tour guide John was amazing, told us a lot about the hills and the animals in the park and we could always ask him anything. Definitely a more than fair price for what you get. Thanks so much! All in one it was one of the best experiences that I made in Ireland!

It's a good mid-day excursion because you see the Cliffs of Mohar and then you come back and from Galway on the trip you can also see the Irish countryside well. I recommend it !!! they are very punctual

10/10 tour, our group was really small so we got to do, see, and learn a lot. John (our guide) made the experience everything that it was. He was super personable and kept the day lively. Highly recommend!

Wonderful experience. If you want a quick tour of the cliffs of moher with no fancy thrills or frills this is it! I enjoyed the quick drive up, the beautiful views, and a quick drive back into town.

Simple way to get from Galway to the Cliffs of Moher and back, with plenty of time there to explore
