Full description

Your first stop is the 13th-century King John’s Castle in Limerick. The castle itself was built by the notorious King John, brother of Richard the Lionheart, and it is widely regarded as one of the best preserved Norman castles in Europe. 

Learn about the medieval era of Ireland, from the Viking invaders to the Lords of Ireland. Following your visit to King John’s Castle, drive through Lisdoonvarna, home of the oldest matchmaking festival in the world. Pass Kilfenora, home to one of Ireland’s most popular traditional Céilí bands.

Travel along the Wild Atlantic Way, brimming with magical views, including over the Aran Islands and the surfing beaches of Fanore and Galway Bay. During the coastal drive, go off the beaten track and view the famous Baby Cliffs of Moher.

Shorter than the Cliffs of Moher, these smaller cliffs offer the ideal opportunity to see whales and dolphins. Gaze over the magical limestone landscape known as the Burren region. 

Dating back over 300 million years, this rugged landscape is home to over 1,100 species of plants ranging from arctic flora to Mediterranean perennials and is one of the most fascinating regions of Western Europe.

Stop at the traditional village of Doolin, boasting some of the best Irish pubs and restaurants. 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.

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 ❤
