From Dublin: Cliffs of Moher, Kilmacduagh, and Galway Tour

1. From Dublin: Cliffs of Moher, Kilmacduagh, and Galway Tour

This is one of the best excursions that can be done from Dublin but, yes, it's time to get up early! To make the most of the day we will be picked up very early and from here, we will go to our first stop, Galway Plaza, where we will arrive after a two-hour drive. We will stop at The Galway Plaza for half an hour, enough time to stretch our legs, clear our heads a little for all those who have made the trip sleeping and have a coffee or a small breakfast to continue, now towards Kilmacduagh Abbey. Kilmacduagh Monastery is located on the outskirts of Gort. For an hour and a half, we will visit the different buildings, and our guide will tell us about their construction date, their usefulness and their most curious details. It is true that today the complex appears to be ruins, time, weather and looting have not been alien to this place, but, even so, here it is possible to recreate the medieval past of Ireland and take advantage of the visit to make an authentic trip in time that will take us to the time of the battles, the knights and the religion of this country. The ruins are only apparent, here what you see is pure history! One of the most striking constructions is the famous Kilmacduagh tower, a peculiar round and slightly inclined tower that boasts being the tallest Irish tower, neither more nor less than 34 meters. Our path continues to the Cliffs of Moher. Just the way to get to the Cliffs of Moher is fascinating, because this road, along the coast of the island, crosses The Burren National Park, with a lunar landscape that is fascinating. This is one of the main attractions and one of the essential visits in Ireland. We will walk, in a totally safe way (this warning is important especially for those who are sensitive to heights), 210 meters above the coast. We will appreciate the strength of a sea that marks the character of the island and its inhabitants so much. We will enjoy free time to explore the area. A good idea is to go to the visitor center to be able to organize what we most want to see. We will also have time to eat. One of the best tips for eating at the Cliffs of Moher is to bring your own picnic. In any case, there is a cafeteria here, but it usually has people and, sometimes, queues form that can take up a lot of time. From the Cliffs of Moher we will go to Galway. This is one of the most popular cities in Ireland and no wonder! We will meet the bohemian part of the country, with its joy, with the best Irish beer and, above all, with its music. We'll go through Shop Street, where we'll see the value of street music...and where we'll be able to do some shopping! Spend a day touring Ireland, from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher and take advantage of the trip to admire its landscapes and soak up the most fascinating Irish culture. Book now!

Kildare: Heritage Bookbinding Workshop

4. Kildare: Heritage Bookbinding Workshop

By Endurance We Conquer is the Shackleton family motto, and we’ll take it as our inspiration for a day of creativity which will see us make our own books, just as Shackleton did in Antarctica. You’ll learn more about Ernest and other Shackleton creatives, including his aunt Mary, in this fun, hands-on workshop, where you’ll also get to try a little screen printing, you’ll create journals in which to store your most meaningful thoughts! I’ll teach you the Coptic Stitch technique of bookbinding and guide you as you bind your own fabric-clothed journal. You can screen print the Shackleton motto “By Endurance we conquer” in English and Latin (“Fortitudine Vincimus”) on the front cover, or you can choose your own topic and motto if you’d prefer! Coptic stitch is particularly great for sketchbooks as the pages open completely flat so you can draw or write across both pages. And with a choice of inks, covers and writing paper, you can create a book that’s just right for you. You will also have the chance to bind a small single-signature, softcover notebook, using a choice of naturally dyed botanical covers – feel free to bring your own artwork along to the book-binding workshop if you’d prefer. There is something very special about binding your own sketchbook, notebook, or diary. If you keep a diary or like to write or sketch, this is a perfect way to store your most adventurous thoughts in a truly personal way!

What people are saying about South East Ireland

Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Dublin that hasn’t before OR wants to visit the main sites and save some money doing so. Was really easy to download the app with the QR code. All places we visited recognised the code immediately, no issues ever. Will even purchase the Dublin Pass again because there was so much included that we didn’t get to in the week we were here.

Eoin is a great guy, very cheerful, jovial and ethusiastic. His passion for his work is clearly visible. The tour itself was very intriguing and fascinating. Got to know a lot about Irish history.

This tour was incredible. Every floor had amazing information and detail about every aspect of the company. The Gravity Bar and Stoutie station were so cool!

Great self guided experience. A little Joyce heavy but what else would you expect. Also 100% recommend the museum shop.

Mye spennende å se og lære. Gøy å få historien fortalt interaktivt. Gjennomført proft opplegg.
