Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of Dublin for a scenic full-day drive through the counties of Kildare, Limerick and Clare, passing the 15th-century Bunratty Castle and world-class golf and surf resort of Lahinch. Your ultimate destination is the dramatic Cliffs of Moher, where you will get premium entrance to the new Atlantic Edge, an interpretive visitor experience that gives you a virtual reality birds’ eye view of cliff edge life above and below sea level. Then, walk along the cliff face and experience the power of nature at work. Feel the fresh air blowing off the ocean, and the sheer height of the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic. Visit O'Brien's Tower, standing proudly on the headland, with panoramic views of the Aran Islands and Galway Bay. Next, drive deep into the Burren, traveling along Europe’s edge! See native flora, ancient monuments, and megalithic tombs in Burren National Park, and look out for the unique Fairy Forts and Celtic Crosses. Continue around Galway Bay to medieval Galway City, passing the Blackhead Lighthouse and fishing village of Kinvara, famed for its Galway Hookers (boats). Upon arrival in Galway - described by W.B. Yeats as “The Venice of the West” - enjoy a 30-minute guided walk, and learn about the city’s trade connections with Spain. You will have some free time to explore the narrow streets on your own, or relax in boutique stores and quaint cafés. Then, sit back on the return drive to Dublin, enjoying the on board entertainment, including extracts from the show “Riverdance” and other examples of Irish culture.

The whole trip was well organized. Who were very lucky with the weather and could see the whole Cliffs of Moher without any problems. Our guide was very experienced and was able to tell us a lot about Ireland. Even if you are only in Ireland for a short time, the Cliffs of Moher should definitely be included in the plan :)

With Dave as our guide and Joe as our driver, it was an absolutely amazing day. From the Cliffs of Moher and one of the most beautiful drives in the world through the Burren, to the gorgeous city of Galway, it never got boring for a second. I highly reccomend.

the trip itself is good and the guide Richard plus the driver Sid make a good combo to travel around with. the only bad thing is that one of the paths at the cliffs was closed at it looked like the most interesting to take but I am sure that's not an every-day thing. i dont usually do group tours but it ended up being fun. Also, cheers to the Guide Richard for the good reccomendation on the ice cream place in Galway.
