Full description

Take a day trip to Inisheer (Inis Oirr) from Galway and discover the ancient churches and castles on the smallest of the Aran Islands. Visit the Cliffs of Moher and admire the coastal scenery.

From the meeting point in Galway, get driven south along the Wild Atlantic Way and into the lunar-like Burren region. From there, head to the picturesque fishing village of Doolin where you’ll board the ferry to Inisheer. Once there, explore the island's churches, castles, lighthouses, shipwrecks, cafes, and pubs. Discover one of Ireland's most beautiful beaches and, if you like, take a pony and carriage, hire a bicycle, or stroll the country roads.

Stop for a hearty meal at a traditional local pub before arriving at the Cliffs of Moher. You will receive free entry to the cliffs and the eco-sensitive visitor center.

Take a stroll along the cliff edge and consider how tiny everything looks from above. Once you depart the cliffs,l take the coast road home, following the Wild Atlantic Way. Make one last stop at the stunning Baby Cliffs in Ballyreen where you can walk atop the Burren, before returning to Galway.

Cliff views from both the water and top ridge was amazing and the Aran island we stopped at was full of sites to see (if you were willing to bike around and up a lot of hills). The bus and boat were a bit crowded but the tour guides were very helpful and informative. Overall a good experience

I love to do a day trip as it’s such a great way to see all the highlights, with insider tips. This trip was no exception. The bus driver, Tommy, was so sweet and kind and knowledgeable—my favorite of my day trip guides these last few weeks I’ve been in Europe. The trip takes enough breaks that you can walk before too long if you struggle with motion sickness or sitting too long. There were several breaks built in and lots of time at the places you would want it. Short lunch in the pub (which also makes sense as you are there to see Ireland) but at an amazingly tasty pub! I lost my phone at the pub and didn’t realize it until the Cliffs and Tommy was on the phone with the pub, trying to find my phone (they did, thank God!) but what a great crew! Went by myself and made lots of friends and had a blast. Perfect trip—absolutely stunning scenery, comfortable bus (toilet on the bus as well if that is a concern) and wonderful people. Cannot recommend this enough!

The day tour was very nice! We had enough time to explore the island by bike. Back to the mainland we went straight past the cliffs, which gave us the perfect view from below. Then we went along the cliffs to a viewpoint from which we had a great view of the cliffs. The trip to the pub for lunch was nice but the staff is very unfriendly and the Irish coffee was the worst I've had in Ireland. Our driver Tommi, on the other hand, was really great! During the ride we got a lot of information about the spots and without his jokes it wouldn't have been half as funny.
