What You Can Expect

Cliffs of Moher Day Trip from Galway

Gleninsheen Wedge Tomb

Leave Galway and head southwest on board your luxury coach in the direction of the world-famous Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. Traveling along scenic coastal roads, your tour stops to visit cute fishing villages and historic sites as you go. First stop is in Kinvara, a pretty fishing village known for its star attraction – Dunguaire Castle. Stroll around it outside with your guide and hear tales of its impressive history that dates back to the 16th century.

Continue your journey through Burren National Park – or simply ‘the Burren’ – and marvel at its utterly intriguing landscape, with rolling hills covered with limestone rocks. The park is home to numerous ancient monuments like the Poulnabrone Dolmen, which is said to be the most photographed Megalithic monument in the country, and the little-known Ballyalban Fairy Fort.

Just outside the town of Kilfenora, stop and hop off your coach to see some Celtic crosses, and learn about their history and symbolism from your guide. The tiny coastal village of Doolin is nearby, and lunch takes place here, in one of the town’s legendary pubs -- Gus O'Connors -- that's famous for its traditional Irish music and great food.

Your afternoon is spent at the stunning Cliffs of Moher, and it’s sure to be the highlight of your day. With approximately two hours to spend here at your leisure, walk around enjoying unforgettable views over the Atlantic Ocean and the Aran Islands. Featured in classic movies like The Princess Bride and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the cliffs are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and perfect for a bracing walk with unforgettable scenery.

Return to Galway via the coastal roads, enjoying one last break for a walk on the Burren.

Great day with the team from Galway Tours. Desmond the king of the Burran was a hoot. GREAT value for money and stunning scenery

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

The trip to the Cliffs of Moher was one of the absolute highlights of my 12 day journey through Ireland. The tour guide and coach driver were the nicest people I met and they told us so many fascinating things about their home country. It was very informative and entertaining at the same time.They were really funny too! :-) Everything from the the beautiful sunshine at the cliffs to the delicious meal (6.50 €!) in a pub in Doolin was TERRIFIC.
Everything was really well organized. We arrived exactly on time back in Galway, the whole day was relaxing and exciting at the same time. The cliffs are breathtakingly beautiful!!! We also saw the Burren, a fascinating, rocky scenery in the county Clare, romantic ruins and and and... We stopped at the most beautiful spots and had plenty of time to take pictures. At the cliffs we had almost two hours to explore them on our own.
I will ALWAYS remember this awesome day and of course Desmond and Anthony, the coolest guides I know :-)
