Why walk along the top when you can get an up close and personal view from the water? Best place to see all the puffins and other birds plus the cliffs, of course. The dolphin that lead the way of our boat was worth the price of the tour by itself.
This is worth every penny, but mother nature didn't cooperate with us on that day. Ireland's weather is so unpredictable. I could of requested a refund but that's not fair to the company that runs the tour of the cliffs. If book the tour and the weather is nice this is an awesome boat ride.
In a good day it will probably be a great tour. On a bad day the worst. A few people were feeling very bad with the movement of the boat due to the weather conditions.
Although I must say, the STAFF was Excellent in helping our discomfort and went beyond their duties to help us feel better.
Please ask about sea conditions if it matters to you
awesome. Seas were alittle rough but it was sunny. I thought it was a great tour the only thing I would have liked was to get a bit closer. There were other tours that did, so I wasn't sure why we didn't.
What a wonderful experience. The cliffs are amazing! The water was very rough the day we went out, but the crew made sure that everyone was safe and had a good ride.To be able to see those majestic cliffs from the water is quite an experience.
Booking the trip through Viator was so easy, thank you.
It was good, but we were told to go underdecks at the beginning and it took most of the tour before we were told we could go to the bow of the boat. Not sure if anyone was actually sick, but there were plenty of green faces and they had plastic bags to hand out just in case! Beautiful views from the bottom, but poor communication by the crew.
This was definitely a good value tour, as you cannot get as good a view of The Cliffs of Moher any other way.
However, a word of caution if you are prone to equilibrium problems like car-sickness or sea-sickness--bring anti-nausea medicine! The waters were a bit rough on our tour, and there were t least 5 people on the boat feeling sickly from sea-sickness.
Also, be sure to bring a rain slicker, as it rained and cleared up a number of times during our tour.
Be sure to use the restroom somewhere in Doolin town before descending to the pier for paid parking and checking in to the tour office, though. Otherwise, the pier restrooms are about a 1/4 mile walk back up the road, and are fairly disgusting -- dirty, no soap, no towels for washing up after using the restroom.
