Full description
Depart Dublin at 6:45 AM and journey through the flat open plain of the Curragh. Pass the Irish National Stud thoroughbred horse breeding facility as your guide shares a wealth of history and information.  Head to the ruins of Kilmacduagh Monastery and its roundhouse – unique for the way it leans over by more than 2 feet. Spend 15-20 minutes here.  Then, arrive at the Cliffs of Moher for a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean and get approximately 2 hours to explore independently. Go to the interactive Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience in the visitor's centre, where a large multimedia screen displays a bird's-eye view from the cliffs, as well as video from the underwater caves. Next, discover the lunar landscapes of The Burren with a 15-20 minute visit and hear about the many secrets of this atypical landscape, home to the warmest ground temperature in Ireland.  Arrive in the city of Galway, where you will have around 1 hour to explore on your own. Discover its old world charm on cobblestone streets that evoke an authentic Ireland of times gone by. Then drive along the coastal route of the Wild Atlantic Way to Kinvara, passing Dunguaire Castle and the 12 Bens mountain range along the way. Return to Dublin and get dropped of at the meeting point at around 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM. *Please note that all times are approximate. The locations might be visited in a different order, depends on traffic and weather.

We had a tour to cliffs of Moher with Brian and Paul. The tour was amazing: on the bus Brian explained some history of Ireland and gave insights when passing by a famous place. He was also very available and friendly. Brian was really great bus driver, he had unfortunate episode with the bus glass door and he managed to fix it at the stop station on the highway, without compromising the tour schedule. This tour is a must do and worth every single cents.

Great experience! Brian was super knowledgeable and sweet, he made the trip very enjoyable. Robert was a great driver as well. I’d suggest bringing a lunch so you’re not rushed to grab food at the first stop. You have plenty of time at the Cliffs of Moher to explore both sides and sit down to eat your lunch. The Burren and the 7th century Monastery were also breathtaking. Enough time in Galway to grab a pint or two, which is all you really need! Glad we signed up to do this tour!
