  • From Galway: Cliffs of Moher Explorer Tour

    1. From Galway: Cliffs of Moher Explorer Tour

    Depart from the Kinlay Hostel at 9:00 AM and take the scenic journey along the Wild Atlantic Way, through the lunar-like landscape of the Burren and on to the Cliffs of Moher. Pass  the picturesque villages of Clarenbridge, Kilcolgan, Ballindereen, Kinvara, Ballyvaughan and Doolin. Turing right at Ballyvaughan, your local, driver/guide will take you south following the Wild Atlantic Way. Witness the power of the Atlantic Ocean as it battles the coastline of Ireland. Your driver / guide will drop you at the Quay at Doolin, from here you start your walk via the village of Doolin along the cliff path to the Cliffs of Moher. Have 5 hours to yourself and meet your drive/guide at the visitor's center.  Return to Galway via Lisdoonvarna, home to the world famous matchmaking festival held every September.

    A really beautiful hike along the cliffs but 5hrs is way too much time even at a leisurely pace. Felt we were just killing time waiting for the return bus ride even after stopping for coffee in the pub before starting the hike and having lunch and touring the interpretive centre after and this is the only reason I wouldn’t recommend this tour. If you can find your own way to the trail head you could hike up and back, or cab it back and probably have a better lunch in the local pub.

    Phenomenal experience, with detailed history of Ireland's culture, politics, sports, etc., while driving through some of the most beautiful scenery in the continent. The coach's small size allows a journey through some smaller villages and hidden-away gems that the big buses can't get to. Highly recommended!

Superb. 5 hours was a perfect duration to fully enjoy the walk, the view, pick blueberries, have a coffee, feed the horses on the way and visit the information center. The guide was funny and very good. I absolutely loved this day.
