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.

The guide had a lot of information and was helpful and pleasant. The guide also gave us a handout with information about what we were seeing. This handout set them above their competitors so we could understand easily.

Everything about this trip was amazing my only complaint is that I wish we had more time at each location, especially at Galway. Guide was knowledgeable and transportation was easy to use. Would highly recommend!

A very enjoyable trip. The rail trip from Dublin and return was much more enjoyable than a bus ride. It was a full day but had plenty of time at all the stops to explore the area. Our guide was very good and provided many stories and anecdotes during the trip.

Fantastic trip and guide! John was very knowledgeable and a superb guide. Pointed out all the little things that mattered most. The train and bus system in Ireland is fantastic. Everything is like new and very clean.

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!
