From Galway: Cliffs of Moher and The Burren Bus Tour

1. From Galway: Cliffs of Moher and The Burren Bus Tour

Get back to nature on an amazing coach trip to The Burren and Cliffs of Moher, and listen to the history of Galway and the surrounding area as you journey through the windswept landscapes of Ireland’s limestone terrain. Visit Dunguaire Castle to see the former residence of the King of Connacht. Explore the underground caves at Aillwee Cave, or relax and grab a coffee at the cafe. Continue over Corkscrew Hill to arrive at the Cliffs of Moher, where you will have 1.5 hours to explore at leisure and see the colony of seabirds on the cliffs. Stop in Doolin for a bite to eat, and travel back to Galway along the Wild Atlantic Way.

From Cork: Guided Full-Day West Cork to Mizen Head Tour

2. From Cork: Guided Full-Day West Cork to Mizen Head Tour

Immerse yourself in Irish culture on this day trip filled with fantastic photo opportunities. Starting in the historic city of Cork, travel by coach to Ireland’s most southwesterly point and view the dramatic cliff scenery of Mizen Head. As you drive through picturesque villages and towns, expect to see some awe-inspiring scenery as Ireland shows off its spectacular landscape. From the meeting point in Cork, travel first to Gougane Barra, home to Ireland's oldest National Forest Park and famous for St. Finbarr's Oratory, its stunning 19th-century church. Enjoy panoramic views of where the River Lee rises. Then, wander through Bantry, one of West Cork's most vibrant market towns, and do some shopping or sit down to a traditional cup of Irish tea and perhaps a scone. The next part of the journey takes you to Mizen Head, Ireland’s most southwesterly point — the edge of Europe and a signature key discovery point on the Wild Atlantic Way. Admire the cliffs of Mizen Head that rise high above the Atlantic Ocean, where the currents meet and the waves from the Atlantic crash into land. Before returning to Cork city, discover Clonakilty, an iconic Irish town. Visit a museum, an Irish pub for a pint of Murphy's, or simply wander the colorful streets. You'll return to the city of Cork in the evening, where you'll be dropped off at the original meeting point.

What people are saying about County Donegal

We had a super tour on a rainy, windy day, because our guide/driver was really great at explaining the sights. The cliffs were stunning, of course, but I will just never get over standing on the deep furrows of two clashing continental plates and having ocean spray hit me at top speeds - the burren is exhilarating!

Our guide, Mike, provided great information all throughout the tour. He was also a great storyteller which is a great asset to have for the job of tour guide and driver.

Loved the bus trip to the Cliffs! Our driver was excellent and very informative about the history throughout the areas along the way.

Great tour. The Cliffs were beautiful. Our driver, John, was a wonderful, intelligent driver.

Excellent day trip - Friendly people at Lally tours
