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.

Eamon was a great tour giude! He was personable, funny, and knew what he was talking about. He knew it was going to stop raining at the Cliffs of Moher later on in the day, so he took us on the tour to other places first. I definitely recommend this trip and it was the perfect way to see more of the Irish history!

A great tour and a great value. Not only is the scenery magnificent, but the tour provides an excellent overview of Irish history. Our driver, PJ, was magnificent. Not only was he personable and witty, he also was extremely knowledgeable about the sites and historical significance of all of the areas we visited during the day. I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the west of Ireland.
