Full description

Discover the history and landscapes of Ireland on a day trip from Galway with a local driver and guide. Marvel at centuries-old buildings and striking natural features before taking in one of the best views the country has to offer from the Cliffs of Moher. Stop for plenty of photo opportunities.

Meet your trained driver and guide outside the Kinlay Hostel. Climb aboard the bus to head to your first stop, Dunguaire Castle on the outskirts of Kinvara. Looking at the 16th-century medieval tower house castle, discover why it is one of the most photographed castles in the whole of Ireland.

Then, drive through the unique glaciokarst landscape of the Burren and past the 12th-century Corcomroe Abbey, a Cistercian monastery noted for its distinguished carvings and rich ornamentation. Then, follow the Wild Atlantic Way as it wends its way along the coast of County Clare.

Pass Black Head and Fanore Strand, Discovery Points on the Wild Atlantic Way, from where you can marvel at views of the three Aran Islands, Inishmore (Inis Mor), Inishmann (Inis Meain), and Inisheer (Inis Oirr), locking in Galway Bay, and in the distance the Connemara mountains.

Next, stop for photos at Doolin pier. Feel the Atlantic wind in your face and admire the power of the sea as it crashes onto the shore. After you've worked up an appetite on the beach, tuck into lunch at the Doolin Hotel (not included). Try any of the local seafood dishes. You won't be disappointed.

Then, head to your main stop of the day, the Cliffs of Moher. Enjoy 2 hours at this signature point along the Wild Atlantic Way. Admire one of Ireland's most spectacular sights. Rising 214 meters out of the Atlantic Ocean, the Cliffs of Moher offer one of the most amazing views in Ireland.

After the Cliffs of Moher, return to Galway via Lisdoonvarna, famous for its annual matchmaking festival.

We booked the tour late on Friday afternoon for the Saturday and because we were staying in Kinvara asked to be picked up at the first stop (Dunguaire Castle), the provider got back to us straight away and it was no issue at all which was great as it saved us making our way into Galway City and back. When Damien(the tour guide) picked us up he straight away started chatting and asking us about our time so far and telling us about what we'd be getting up to today and I can honestly say he was absolutely brilliant and so funny the whole way throughout the day, I can't give him enough praise he has made our trip! I don't leave many reviews but just had to come on and give this one 5stars :) Thanks so much!

Very good trip. A lot of stops along the way and the driver/guide was very good and had a lot of interesting things to say. The only thing I would change is the amount of time at the cliffs, which is 2 hours. I think 3h would be better as it would give you time to do the entire walk.

Incredible! My friend and I booked this tour with little knowledge prior and we had a fantastic day! Our driver (unfortunately can't remember his name) was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The visit was well-timed and did not feel rushed. We were able to see multiple cliffs and have a nice pub and coffee break in town we would not have otherwise had the opportunity to see. I would highly recommend it to anyone!!
