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.

It's been a very long day. But the Cliffs of Moher are well worth seeing. Stay there approx. 1.5 hours. Sa's food at Doolin was excellent. In Galway we were also about 1.5 hours, you can't see much during this time if you eat and drink something else. The bus driver was very nice and told a lot. Unfortunately, if the mother tongue is not English, you will not understand very much of the stories. But the tour is only offered in English.

This tour allows you an opportunity to visit the beautiful cliffs, learn about the history of Ireland, and do some shopping or drinking in Galway. A decent amount of stops along the way, beautiful vistas, and you have the chance to do as many or as little walking as you’d like.

Everything was perfect! We departed at 6.50am from the meeting point at the Molly Malone statue in Dublin. Our guide was really hands on and explained so many things to us during the trip. Stop at an autogrill on both the outward and return journeys. First stop: cliffs of Moher, beautiful place, worth the visit. Then a short stop in Doolin where we had lunch (not included), very good food. Third stop: the Burren, photo stop; another very special place. Finally, stroll through Galway and return to Dublin at 8pm.
