Full description

Discover the beauty of the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher on a day trip from Galway. Take a bus through the karst landscape 'The Burren' and search for dolphins on the ferry to Inisheer Island. Spend free time exploring and admire the Cliffs of Moher on the return ferry. 

Depart Galway and journey through the lunar landscape of The Burren as your make your way to the Cliffs of Moher. Pass pretty villages like Kilcolgan and Ballyvaughan on the way to Doolin.

Board the ferry for a 30-minute crossing to Inisheer, and keep a look out for bottlenose dolphins on the way to the smallest of the Aran Islands. Get some free time to explore the ancient sites at your own pace. Use the time to hire a bike or explore by pony and trap.

Cruise beneath the Cliffs of Moher on the return ferry crossing. Then, travel to the eco-friendly visitors center, where you can stroll along the cliff top before the return trip to Galway via the famous "matchmaking" town of Lisdoonvarna.

This was an incredible excursion! Perfect way to see the cliffs and more if you’re not traveling with a car. The Aran islands were cool, with stunning views and lovely locals offering tours. Seeing the cliffs from the bottom was an incredible perspective! And the top was just as impressive! Alan was a great tour guide, he was knowledgeable, and kept things interesting! Highly suggest this tour!

John was our driver/guide. He made the tour a true highlight of our trip. The Aran Island was a nice stop. The cliffs and the Burren are absolutely stunning. Sadly the “cruise” under the Cooffs was cancelled due to rough seas but that didn’t deter us from enjoying every minute of the day. Would definitely do this tour again!

The tour exceeded my expectations. The information shared by the guide about Irish culture, touristic tips, and his good humour made the tour even more enjoyable. We were lucky to have a great weather on that day, we could visit the island landscapes easily having enough time to do a horse riding, see the castle and have a chowder in the local pub. My favourite part was seeing the cliffs from the boat, it's a breath-taking experience.
