Measuring 700 feet (214 m) high along Ireland’s Atlantic Coast, the Cliffs of Moher are among the Emerald Isle’s most impressive natural wonders. To help you find the right tour for you, here are your options for visiting the cliffs from Dublin.
Maximize your time with a guided full-day tour from Dublin and visit several attractions in one day. Walk along the UNESCO-protected Cliffs of Moher, then admire the unique landscapes of the Burren or visit the traditional Irish village of Doolin, both nearby. Alternatively, couple your visit with a city tour of Galway or Limerick, or cruise out to the Aran Islands and admire the cliffs from the sea.
A multi-day tour means you can travel further afield and see more of Ireland's sights. Perhaps drive the Wild Atlantic Way, passing the Dingle Peninsula and Galway; head south to tour Blarney Castle, visit Cork, and explore the Ring of Kerry; or continue north along the remote Connemara coast. Multi-day tours typically include accommodation, transport by train or bus, some meals, and entrance fees.
