What You Can Expect

Limerick, Cliffs of Moher, Burren and Galway Bay Rail Tour from Dublin

The Burren, Clare

Depart from Dublin Heuston Station in the early morning on your train to Limerick, and enjoy breakfast on board (own expense) while taking in Ireland’s lush central landscape. Upon arriving in the ancient city of Limerick, enjoy a tour of this city that was once the key settlement for Vikings in Ireland, and is more recently known as the setting of Frank McCourt’s harrowing memoir Angela's Ashes.

Following this rich bit of history, board your northbound coach to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park. Explore the fine medieval castle, complete with 15th- and 16th-century furnishings, tapestries and traditional works of art. Then tour Folk Park for a taste of Irish village life at the turn of the 20th century, including a schoolhouse, post office, doctor’s office and more. 

Next up, take a break for a traditional Irish pub lunch (own expense) at Gus O’Connor’s Pub in Doolin, where you’ll enjoy a steamy bowl of seafood chowder or some crispy fish and chips with a cup of tea (or a pint of Guinness). Then head for the Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland’s most famous natural sites.

After a stroll along the cliffs, sit back for a scenic drive along the rocky coastal edge of the Burren and Galway Bay before arriving in Galway. Depending on what time you get to Galway, you may have time for a quick walk through the cobbled streets before catching your evening train back to Dublin. Have a leisurely dinner aboard (own expense) before returning to the train station.

Great day out of Dublin! We squished alot into one day because we had limited time but well worth the early rise and late night! Beaches, burrens, cliffs, castles, flowers, fairies....our tour guide Jonathon kept us intrigued and smiling the whole way. Great look at so many Irish landscapes and insight into history and folklore. Well done!

Excellent tour! Brendan Enright, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable, funny and courteous. He made the trip very enjoyable! The tour was a great way to travel, with enough time to enjoy the sights, walk around and take pictures. Although it was a full day, the trip was planned out well and it went very smoothly. I highly recommend this tour!

This tour was amazing. The rail tour of the countryside was beautiful, but the cliffs were spectacular and the guides took the time for scenic stops along the way from the cliffs to Galway for us to take pictures. I highly recommend this tour.

The trip for our group of six exceeded my expectations. This was one of the places I wanted to visit on a first trip to Ireland. Everything was First Class from start to finish. Excellent coordination at the beginning of the trip as we gathered at Dublin. Superb guide who had a good time with us! Terrific driver. Perfect lunch stop location. I give it 5 stars plus!

Although this was an extremely long tour, it was well worth it. We were met at the train station in Dublin and had someone with us the whole time. The choices of tours and stops were well representative of Ireland. Norman, our guide, was great. Very knowledgeable and experienced. I would def recommend this tour it you want to make the most out of one day. Everyone needs to see the Cliffs of Moher at least once in their life.

I had a great time and saw many amazing sights with lots of history. Johnathan is very informative and tentative guide. He knows his land and its history. He can also sing and cites a sonnet. The trip is worth very penny and I definitely recommend it.

The combination of rail and bus was a delightful way to travel. The countryside, the castle and the cliffs were everything we hoped for. The wind and rain had it moments but sunny times gave us many perspectives of the region. We also enjoyed meeting the other folks on the tour.
