Full description
Your first stop is the 13th-century King John’s Castle in Limerick. The castle itself was built by the notorious King John, brother of famous Richard the Lionheart, and it is widely regarded as one of the best preserved Norman castles in Europe. Learn about the medieval era of Ireland, ranging from the Viking invaders to the Lords of Ireland. Following your visit to King John’s Castle, drive through Lisdoonvarna, home of the oldest matchmaking festival in the world. The pass Kilfenora, home to one of Ireland’s most popular traditional Céilí bands. Travel along the Wild Atlantic Way, brimming with magical views, including over the Aran Islands and the surfing beaches of Fanore and Galway Bay. During the coastal drive, go off the beaten track and view the famous Baby Cliffs of Moher. Shorter than the Cliffs of Moher, these smaller cliffs offer the ideal opportunity to see whales and dolphins. Gaze over the magical limestone landscape known as the Burren region. Dating back over 300 million years, this rugged landscape is home to over 1,100 species of plants ranging from arctic flora to Mediterranean perennials and is one of the most fascinating regions of Western Europe. Stop at the traditional village of Doolin, boasting some of the best Irish pubs and restaurants. Order a local dish for lunch, such as Doolin’s famous seafood chowder, soda bread, and freshly brewed Guinness. Arrive at the world famous Cliffs of Moher, to enjoy a relaxing walk and breathtaking views. The cliffs offer a stunning view of Galway Bay, the Aran Islands, and the rugged Connemara wilderness. You will also have the chance to see many of the 30,000 birds nesting in colonies along the cliffs and explore the award-winning Atlantic Edge Exhibition. You will return to Dublin at approximately 7:30 PM, where you will be dropped off in downtown Dublin, or at the same location that you were collected from.

We had an amazing tour with Jacky today traveling to the Cliffs of Moher. We got lucky with a great guide & beautiful weather. He was so helpful in ensuring we had time to thoroughly explore all of our stops + had time to go to the bathroom! I loved all of the trivia & how personal the trip was. Our tour wasn’t sold out so we had lots of room on the van to spread out. I can’t say enough how appreciative we were that we had a knowledgeable guide & a safe van to ride in. Jacky was the best!!

Unfortunately, we were not picked up at the agreed meeting point. After a second attempt to reach the agency directly, we were picked up 20 minutes late. Overall the tour was great. Limerick (John's Castle) could be left out and instead stay in other smaller towns. It's a tight schedule but it didn't bother us. Cliffs of Moher were scheduled for about 2 hours. We were glad to have booked the small tour because we certainly saw more than with the big buses. The driver Jacky was great and told us a lot about the history and current times. To get a rough insight the tour was good. However, to have more time and see more you have to do it on your own.

The bus came to the meeting point on time. The trip is worth the money. Our driver Patrick gave us great entertainment during the trip. Great facts and stories. Thanks for that. King Johns Castle is very nice and informative. The cliffs were a real adventure in stormy weather. Only the pub in Doolin was not so tasty, but what do you expect from a pub kitchen :). So great trip. We recommend. Thank you Patrick.
