Full description

Witness the dramatic features of the Cliffs of Moher and The Burren on a full-day guided tour of Ireland’s west coast from Dublin. Explore the vibrant city of Galway and enjoy a pub lunch in Doolin.

Depart from Dublin and learn about the region from your guide as you go west. Arrive at the Cliffs of Moher and follow the cliff path to the edge for breathtaking views over the Atlantic. Breathe in the ocean wind and hear the waves crashing below you. Explore on your own for 1.5 hours.

Get a bird's-eye view of the cliffs and see the underwater caves on a large multimedia screen at the interactive Visitor Centre. Continue to the charming village of Doolin for lunch in a local pub and spot the Aran Islands in the distance along the way.

Stop at The Burren for 15 to 20 minutes and get photos of its otherworldly landscape. See rare orchids and admire views of the Baby Cliffs. 

Then, explore the vibrant city of Galway, known for its strong tradition of Irish music, language, and dance. You will have around 1 hour to explore on your own.

Finish your day with the scenic journey back to Dublin. Expect jolly commentary, anecdotes, and even some Irish music to keep you entertained on the road back to the capital.

This was a really beautiful way to travel through Ireland, learn a lot about the country’s history, and stop at a few stunning sites along the way. Our driver, Bud, is my new favorite person! He was as sweet as can be, an angel he was. He was obviously really passionate about being a part of this travel experience to the Cliffs that some people wait their whole lives for. He knew everything about everything and was funny too! After the Cliffs, we stopped for lunch at the greatest little pub in Doolin and I truly had the best beef stew I’ve ever had. Then we made a spontaneous spot at Ballyreen before getting to Galway City. The sites outside the window are gorgeous and even though it’s a long day, the buses are comfortable with charging ports and big windows to see all of Ireland surrounding you. I ended up not getting back on after we got to Galway so this is a great way to travel to Galway and make the most of the journey as opposed to just taking a CityLink. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our trip to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway. Our driver and Tour Guide, Bud, was fantastic, very funny and may I say, also very knowledgeable. He shared many stories, colorful facts and little tidbits as we went along the way and pointed out different historical places and interesting sites and locations throughout the journey. Luckily, we had a clear day at the Cliffs of Moher so that we could take in the incredible, stunning and breathtaking vistas. We also stopped for lunch in the cool village of Doolin after visiting the Cliffs and then stopped to see the rocky limestone formations at the Burren landscape along the coastline. After that we headed to Galway where we enjoyed a leisurely stroll in the town center and did some light shopping for gifts and souvenirs. All in all, this was a great day trip with memories for a lifetime. Many thanks to Bud for a safe, fun and enjoyable tour.
