This was exactly the kind of tour we were looking for. A day trip from Dublin that would give a chance to see some of the Irish countryside and to visit some of the beautiful Irish landscapes of the west coast. Our guide Jennifer and our driver Larry were super friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to spend the day with. A nice touch was the Irish music that Jennifer played for us throughout the bus trip. It was just the right amount of quiet time and lecture time on the bus. We lucked out and had beautiful weather for our tour at the end of November. Chilly, but sunny and no wind. Our tour stops included the Cliffs of Moher, lunch at McGann's in Doolin, the Burren, Corcomroe Abbey, and the small village of Kinvara. The Cliffs were stunning a bit hard to photograph on a sunny day and do it justice, but I'll take the sunny weather!, and we spent a fair enough time there. We were able to hike to both the right and the left of the visitor center without feeling rushed. If you think you can only manage one, I would head to the right... it was a bit more adventurous. Lunch was quick but delish. I had the seafood chowder, since it is a regional dish, and it was very good. We were only going to stop along the Burren for about 20 minutes but that stretched to 40 minutes, which was nice. That gave us a chance to appreciate its beauty inland and also along the Atlantic coast this was mostly just a photo op stop. I truly appreciated the stop at the Abbey, since I wanted to see some kind of ancient architecture on this tour and I wasn't sure if we would have a stop at a castle of some sort. The Abbey was lovely especially with the adjacent cemetery. Our final stop was the small village of Kinvara. This was really just a quick coffee/beer break, but we had enough time to walk along the small port and see the boats and the distant castle. You do spend a fair amount of time on the bus in order to get to the other side of the island, but it goes quickly. We also had a pit stop/potty break on the way there and on the way back which was very nice since there was no commode on the bus.
Amazing from start to finish!! The Cliffs were amazing even with all the wind and rain! The driver sang a lot during the trip and added to the experience! Would highly recommend going!!
Trip was AMAZING! Our driver, Mac, told us the history of the country in an easy to understand way, accompanied with jokes and lots and lots of singing! The tour was well organized and our wonderful driver made it so much fun. Cliffs were busy, but then we also got to see a few stops where we were the only tour bus there. I would highly recommend!
We had a really nice time. Our tour guide John knew so much information and shared it all while we drove around the country side. He even played Celtic music. It was really foggy at the cliffs of moher but to be expected this time of year. Really enjoyed eating lunch at an Irish pub. Would do again!
Great tour. Full of beautiful scenery and unexpected picture worthy stops. Cliff of Moher surpassed expectations.
Excellent day tour. VERY long day, because you see so much! The bus was clean and the trip was well organized. Our guide, I believe his name was James, was awesome. He would sing us Irish folk songs and talked a lot, keeping the day lively.

I really loved this tour. Our guide Gabriel or Angel Gabriel as he preferred :P seems to really love his job and history and country. The tour wouldn't have been the same without him. A real history buff with a knack for storytelling. He basically gives you a very entertaining crash course on the history of Ireland.
I was deciding between this tour and another one cause I was afraid of what the weather would be like but since the weather was surprisingly amazing throughout my entire visit to Ireland I booked this and I'm so glad I did.
The cliffs are a truly spectacular view I actually added the cliffs to my wishlist after they popped up as a wallpaper on Momentum for Chrome :P . The other places you visit are quite nice as well but I think I enjoyed the ride through Ireland more than anything. The view from the bus is absolutely amazing. The lunch in Doolin was very tasty today's catch fish chips.
Before heading back, we stopped at a chocolate factory so be forewarned, if you're a chocoholic like me, prepare to spend quite a bit of money there :P
I loved this trip, such a beautiful, relaxing day. The Cliffs were breathtaking, and the drive through the country was peaceful and beautiful. Our tour guide, Derek, was excellent, giving lots of interesting history and commentary without being boring or talking constantly. We did have a stunner of a day, clear, bright, sunny, and not too cold. If you can book on a clear day, your won't regret spending your whole day on this trip.
You need to do this! It can be a long day but Derrick the driver was hilarious, the ride was smooth, and Derrick is a great driver anyone that can maneuver a 60 passenger bus around a corner meant for a bicycle has my vote for best driver ever!.
You get to see many small Irish villages, experience the windy cliffs of Moher, and see an old abbey cemetery. Be on the lookout for a very rolling golf course along the motorway, be sure your driver gives you a heads up, it's amazing.
The coach was comfortable for the passengers drivers need a cup holder. The pit stops were plenty and gave everyone a chance to use facilities, grab a bite to eat or something to drink or stretch their legs.
Derrick gave us good information as we passed by things and before we came up to the next stop. He always gave us a time frame for how long until the next stop and how long we will be there.
Only recommendation for the company would be to install a large electronic clock near the front. That helps people to confirm they are on the same time as the bus and can check their watches accordingly when they depart the bus.
It was extremely reasonable price I thought and would take this tour company to other places if I get a chance to go to Ireland again.
This was an amazing trip made even better with tour guides Jennifer and Larry. Jennifer really knows her history and took us to some great spots we would have never seen without her guidance. Larry drives the bus like a Fiat, navigating the narrow roads and parking the thing in places most people couldn't even fit a car. Jennifer also had a great music playlist and pictures she shared with the group that helped add to the experience. If you take this tour ask for Jennifer and Larry!
Excellent tour that allows you to take a break from planning. Wonderful tour guide who added humor to our trip.
Incredible! My one regret is the time factor. I wanted more time at the cliffs. It was fantastic as a taste of the location.
This was a long day with many hours in the bus, but so worth it!!!!! Jennifer and Larry, our guide and driver were so friendly. They not only did a nice job with the tour stuff, but seemed genuinely interested in chatting with us as people and not just clients. Jennifer's stories were so fun and informative. We enjoyed the eclectic music as well.
A wonderful day trip from Dublin west to the Cliffs of Moher. The tour guide Joey was excellent! He was knowledgable and able to keep a pretty big group on time and engaged. There are plenty of stops for bathroom breaks and snacks. Enjoy!
This was a great trip. Our tour guide, Bud was very knowledgable and entertaing. Loved every minute and wished we had time to take a longer tour. If you only have a day to spend, this is the tour to take.
This was an incredible trip. Such amazing, beautiful scenery. Ireland is one of a kind. Our tour guide was wonderful and had many a great stories to share about where we were. If you and #39;re looking for the perfect place to and #34;pop the question and #34;, this is it. I said yes!
It is a long trip but, worth it! If you have a funny tour guide/driver like Wayne leading the way! The view is amazing and the pub stop for lunch hit the spot. Would recommend going on this tour as well as any of the others offered.
Mac was our tour guide, and Mac MADE that tour. He was a one-man show, acting as the bus driver, tour guide, singing star, and food critic. He would frequently sing us Irish songs over the PA system on the long ride home the kids in front of us weren't very enthusiastic, but the rest of us were. He stopped in this tiny town and recommended this crowded but absolutely freaking delicious little restaurant where I had the best food in all of Ireland. Plus he got us there and back safely, chipper all the while.
The Cliffs themselves are really a sight to behold. It's a tiny bit terrifying if you're scared of heights, you can still do the tour but be aware some places get a little closer than you'd probably like.
We have used Viator for all our tours, and like always, they never disappoint, this trip was beyond wonderful, as we were fortunate to get really good weather and clear skies which is a must to see the cliffs. I must mention David our tour guide who was simply amazing in his knowledge and storytelling skills which i thoroughly enjoyed....
Our tour guide kept us updated throughout the day on stops, local information/history, and what to expect. Easy for tourists to use the site, and find the pick-up location Hop on and we were all taken care of!
I love the tour... The place is amazing and the guide was very helpfull
Absolutely amazing trip. If you have good weather, the cliffs are just awesome and it's worth every penny of the ticket - and the four-hour drive from Dublin. Our tour guide, David, was interesting and told us a lot about the countryside as we passed. We enjoyed the stops following the cliffs as well, but nothing else was as dramatic or amazing as the cliff-side. Gorgeous and unforgettable.
It was great. The tour guide was very pleasant and informative. Would do this again.
Our tour guide/driver was Wayne. He was fantastic! Kept us on schedule and was incredibly knowledgeable about where he took us. I have bad motion sickness and he was very accommodating. We weren't able to see the cliffs due to the weather, but he knew of a spot a little further down where we were able to stop and get amazing shots of some other cliffs. We even saw a leprechaun! LOL Thanks Wayne!
Our tour guide was great and kept the drive short and efficient. Had lots of fun facts and stories to tell us on the way. Great day!
