Wonderful to walk the path that from Doolin takes you to the entry point of the Cliffs of Moher, it took us about 2:30 walking calmly in a path that is all in all safe, but with small exceptions (part of the path includes passing in the middle of cow pastures, nothing so difficult). It is necessary to be equipped with technical clothing for trekking and to have a good raincoat, given the ease of running into showers. Experience that I would do again immediately.

Beautiful scenery but 5hrs is too much time if walking

A really beautiful hike along the cliffs but 5hrs is way too much time even at a leisurely pace. Felt we were just killing time waiting for the return bus ride even after stopping for coffee in the pub before starting the hike and having lunch and touring the interpretive centre after and this is the only reason I wouldn’t recommend this tour. If you can find your own way to the trail head you could hike up and back, or cab it back and probably have a better lunch in the local pub.

Make sure they put you on the right tour!

We were so excited to do the explorer tour with the five hours to travel the whole coast, unfortunately when checking in they looked at our reservation and sent us to a bus, not until after leaving the meeting area did we come to find this was not the right bus and we would not get to do the explorer tour, instead the Cliffs of Moher tour and site seeing. I don’t think they even had a bus for the Explorer Tour that day so they just stuck on with that tour. With that being said we were bummed but made the best of it, our tour guide Alan was fantastic and we loved hearing about/seeing the country side of Ireland and the Cliffs of Moher.
