Order a local dish for lunch, such as Doolin’s famous seafood chowder, soda bread, and freshly brewed Guinness. Arrive at the world-famous Cliffs of Moher. Enjoy a relaxing walk and breathtaking views. The cliffs offer a stunning view of Galway Bay, the Aran Islands, and the rugged Connemara wilderness. You will also have the chance to see many of the 30,000 birds nesting in colonies along the cliffs and explore the award-winning Atlantic Edge Exhibition.  Return to Dublin at approximately 7:30 PM, where you will be dropped off in downtown Dublin, or at the same location that you were collected from.

What people are saying about County Clare

This tour was a highlight of my trip to Ireland. I was a solo traveler and met great people in our sprinter van. The van held 15-18 people and we were full but comfortable at all times The van was clean, comfortable and had some nice amenities (usb charger, arm rest, air conditioning). Our tour guide/driver Jackie was amazing! He was on time, knew how to navigate the small country roads, was knowledgeable about history and also kept us entertained with wit, sarcasm and music. He’s an animal lover and incorporates that into his tour. If you can, request him on any tour you take! Jackie also was able to refer each passenger to pubs, live music and restaurants in the sections of Dublin they were staying at. The sights and amounts of time we spent at each was perfect and as promised. It was a lot of driving and a long day but for the price and convenience it was well worth it. My only regret was that I didn’t have cash to tip Jackie at the end!!!

We had Jayjay as our tour guide, he was very friendly, accommodating, funny and a great driver. We always felt very comfortable with him. The stays were well timed and the breaks to pursue his needs were perfect. The food that was recommended to us was great and we were lucky with the weather. The small bus tour was worth it and the cliffs were breathtaking. We would love to do a tour like this again on our next visit. Thank you for the beautiful experience on our honeymoon ❤

Great driver-guide Vincent, with fun sense of humour Flexible itinerary with lots of extras Itinerary ran in reverse because combined with 4 day tour Range of accommodation from comfortable BnBs to clean basic private hostel room Highlights were Cliffs of Moher and Dingle Peninsula and Kilkenny castle n town...
