    1. From Galway: Aran Islands & Cliffs of Moher Tour with Cruise

    Depart Galway and journey through the lunar landscape of The Burren en route to the Cliffs of Moher. Pass pretty villages like Kilcolgan and Ballyvaughan en route to Doolin. Board the ferry for a 30-minute crossing to Inisheer, and keep a look out for bottlenose dolphins on the way to the smallest of the Aran Islands. Get some free time to explore the ancient sites at your own pace. Use the time to hire a bike or explore by pony and trap. Cruise beneath the Cliffs of Moher on the return ferry crossing. Then, travel to the eco-friendly visitors center, where you can stroll along the cliff top before the return trip to Galway via the famous "matchmaking" town of Lisdoonvarna.

    Damien gave us an excellent tour. He was a lot of fun and very good at his job. The Aran island tour is well worth the trip. Very picturesque landscape and has to be seen in person to fully appreciate the beauty of the area. Would recommend this hands down

The tour was excellent. The 2 hours bus trip didn't seem long at all because of the scenerie and also the guide, who kept telling us stories about Ireland and what we were going to see. The ferry trip to Inesheer was a nice experience (if you get dizzy in boats you may have some trouble but it's just around 20 minutes) and they gave us and hour and half to walk around the island. Finally, about the Cliffs of Moher, the visit is MANDATORY. There was mist when we arrived, but at the end we were able to enjoy the outstanding views. In general a really awesome tour.

It’s was a fantastic boat trip from start to finish. All the staff & captain knew there stuff and treated us to a great ride. The bar staff was very pleasant and helpful (not to mention) hard working. We would 100% come back and do the same trip, they made it that good. Thank you everyone.

Such an amazing experience! From the boat ferry to Aran Islands to cruise around the cliffs, to just the bus tour and commentary-the perfect day! Our driver, Jerry, was so funny, informative, kind, and could tell he has a passion to show the beauty of his country. And that was the best part!
