The tour was really excellent and our guide/driver Alex was brilliant. He told us some fun facts, some history and also made many jokes along the way. Unfortunately the weather was foggy on Cliffs of Moher. It cleared later on so Alex was kind enough to stop again for half an hour to let us see them in sunny weather. A great guide and excellent tour.

Great trip from Limerick which was just the right length. The Cliffs of Moher were so impressive and we had outstanding weather with great visibility. Our bus driver Martin was wonderful and very informative (he was also our guide). We had an appropriate amount of time at each stop.

What a wonderful experience!!!! Absolute must in Ireland. The cliffs are breathtakingly beautiful. You should pay attention to the weather forecast before booking, as the trip makes no sense in fog. A hat to protect you from the wind is also recommended.

Lovely tour with multiple stops at beautiful locations. The freedom and time given is enough to enjoy the beautiful views. While driving in the bus you will have a great view of the surrounding area.

Guide was awesome, explained Ireland history in a short and effective way.
