Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of Dublin for a scenic full-day drive through the counties of Kildare, Limerick and Clare, passing the 15th-century Bunratty Castle and world-class golf and surf resort of Lahinch. Your ultimate destination is the dramatic Cliffs of Moher, where you will get premium entrance to the new Atlantic Edge, an interpretive visitor experience that gives you a virtual reality birds’ eye view of cliff edge life above and below sea level. Then, walk along the cliff face and experience the power of nature at work. Feel the fresh air blowing off the ocean, and the sheer height of the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic. Visit O'Brien's Tower, standing proudly on the headland, with panoramic views of the Aran Islands and Galway Bay. Next, drive deep into the Burren, traveling along Europe’s edge! See native flora, ancient monuments, and megalithic tombs in Burren National Park, and look out for the unique Fairy Forts and Celtic Crosses. Continue around Galway Bay to medieval Galway City, passing the Blackhead Lighthouse and fishing village of Kinvara, famed for its Galway Hookers (boats). Upon arrival in Galway - described by W.B. Yeats as “The Venice of the West” - enjoy a 30-minute guided walk, and learn about the city’s trade connections with Spain. You will have some free time to explore the narrow streets on your own, or relax in boutique stores and quaint cafés. Then, sit back on the return drive to Dublin, enjoying the on board entertainment, including extracts from the show “Riverdance” and other examples of Irish culture.

We had a great day trip with Martina and Jerry! Lots of fun and we were super impressed how much they knew about literally everything concerning the history of Ireland! We had two hours at the cliffs, which was perfect, it was just enough to actually walk around and not just hop out and take a pic. Highly recommend, I’d kind of wish we would have stayed longer im Dublin and could have done more tours with them.

Richard our tour guide and Sarah our driver were amazing. Richard told us about local Irish history and culture and was both funny and kind. The cliffs were beautiful and we had plenty of time to see the museum and the coastal views. The stop in Galway was my favorite part though. Richard gave great recommendations on where to eat and get ice cream and went so far as to walk us into town. I had time to eat a sit down meal, shop, get ice cream, take a walk all the way down the river to the bay, and grab a quick stop in a local bookshop. It was a well-planned day and we were well taken care of; the tour was definitely money well-spent. The bus was also comfortable with a movie on for the return ride to Dublin.
