Overview

Set off on a journey along the Wild Atlantic Way to the iconic Cliffs of Moher. Discover the wonders of Ireland’s Cliff Coast as your guide shares his expertise and points out the fascinating unfolding sights. At the Cliffs of Moher, enjoy 2 hours of free time to explore one of the most spectacular sights in Ireland.

After being picked up in Galway, head to the rugged western coastline and travel the Emerald Isle’s famous 1,500-mile touring route-the Wild Atlantic Way. During your trip, pass by harbours and farms, see medieval ruins, 16th-century tower houses, crumbling stone churches, and ancient graveyards.

Your first stop is at Dunguaire Castle on the outskirts of Kinvara. This is one of the most photographed castles in the whole of Ireland. Then it’s on through the glacio-karst landscape of the Burren and past Corcomroe Abbey. This fascinating 12th century Cistercian Abbey is noted for its distinguished carvings and rich ornamentation.

We follow the Wild Atlantic way enjoying views of Fanore’s golden beach and the small, but stout, Black Head lighthouse that sits alone on a bed of limestone in the Burren region. The lunar-like Burren landscape in Ireland is considered one of the best examples of glaciation in the world.

From here you can also see the three Aran Islands, Inishmore, Inishmann and Inisheer, locking in Galway Bay and in the distance the mountains of Connemara.

A photo stop at Doolin pier gives you a chance to feel the Atlantic wind in your face and to see the power of the sea as it crashes in on the shore. During the summer months, there is an opportunity to join a cruise to the base of the Cliffs of Moher. (cruise not included). After you’ve worked up an appetite on the beach it’s onto Doolin Hotel for lunch. (Lunch not included). Try any of the local sea food dishes, which are delicious!

Arrive at the Cliffs of Moher for a 2 hour stop. The Cliffs of Moher rise 214 meters out the Atlantic ocean, a majestic and iconic sight. Wander the pathways along the cliff at your own pace or just rest on one of the viewing platforms and soak in the invigorating salty, sea air. Head to the visitor center to check out interactive exhibits and displays.

After a day on the edge, return to Galway via the colourful town of Lisdoonvarna, famous for its annual match making festival. The tour returns to Galway city between 17h00 and 17h30.
