What You Can Expect

Cliffs of Moher Tour with Doolin Village and Galway Bay Coastal Drive from Dublin

One of the most ancient religious sites in Ireland

Make an early start and depart from central Dublin for your full-day tour of Ireland’s western wonders. Soak up the scenery on the approximately 2.5-hour drive, including a short stop to grab a coffee or an Irish breakfast roll (own expense) along the way.

Arrive in Galway and set off down the coast towards the Cliffs of Moher. Jump out to snap photos of the striking Dunguaire Castle, a 16th-century tower perched on the seafront just north of Kinvara. Continue to Ballyvaughan and follow your guide around the remains of an early Celtic fort, before stopping at Poulnabrone Dolmen, one of Ireland’s oldest religious sites, dating back some 5,800 years.

Make a last stop in Kilfenora to see the Celtic High Crosses, before arriving in Doolin. Enjoy free time to explore the quaint fishing village and tuck into some lunch – perhaps try the famous seafood chowder at Gus O'Conner's, then pick up some delicious fudge from the Doolin Chocolate Shop.

With your appetite sated, make a beeline for the day’s star attraction, the Cliffs of Moher, and enjoy ample time to walk along the 702-foot (214-meter) tall cliffs and gaze out over the rugged Atlantic coast. Continue the jaw-dropping views as you drive the scenic Coast Road back to Galway, affording picture-perfect views of the Aran Islands and Galway Bay.

Depart Galway at around 6:30pm for the journey back to Dublin and arrive back in the city at approximately 9pm.

One of the most memorable and enjoyable tours I have ever done. Our tour guide Mike D from Galway to the Cliffs of Moher was hilarious. He defiantly made what could have been a very long boring drive full of laughter. He also took us to a great pub and an amazing fudge place next to it for lunch. Of course the Cliffs of Moher was spectacular and at the end we got to see the sunset on the coastline. Ireland defiantly has my heart. Good food, friendly people and beautiful place. I would defiantly recommend this trip and if you want a good laugh sit in the front row on the bus.

Even though this is a really long day of touring, it is absolutely worth every minute! The cliffs are absolutely breathtaking. There's plenty of time at each sight to take advantage of photo opportunities or to just take it all in. The stops are well-timed for snacks or bathroom breaks. I never felt rushed. Lunch was wonderfully delicious and provided plenty of time to take a stroll around the village or to just enjoy a pint of Guinness. Our driver, Mike, was delightful and fun! And he provided great insight into the history of all the sights we visited and passed along the way.
Be aware that this tour has slightly different stops depending on the season.

This was a great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and quite funny! Despite the rainy weather at the beginning of the tour we managed to see some beautiful scenery along the Galway Coastal Drive. Mother nature was on our side, though, when we got the the Cliffs of Moher. The sun came out just enough for us to get some breathtaking photos! Lunch at Gus O'Connors Pub in Doolin was delicious. Great food with fast service. There are also some great little souvenir stores nearby including a chocolate shop. Overall it was a wonderful tour! Highly recommend!

Cliffs of Moher, wow, that's all that really needs to be said. What a gorgeous place. Doolin village was quaint. The driver/guide on the tour name escapes me unfortunately was very knowledgeable. We had ample time to explore at the Cliffs of Moher. Overall a very good tour. Be aware though, this is a long day-approx 12-14hrs, so be prepared!
