Enjoy panoramic views of where the River Lee rises.

The next part of the journey takes you to Mizen Head, Ireland’s most southwesterly point — the edge of Europe and a signat...

    Really great tour! Everything went very smoothly - thought there was plenty of time spent at each place, it didn't feel super rushed. Most of the time is spent at Mizen Head, with short stops at the other locations so plan on eating lunch at Mizen with only tea breaks at Bantry/Clonakilty. Enjoyed the guides commentary along the way. Definitely worth doing as a day tour, wouldn't want to drive those roads myself!

Great place to visit and we were extremely lucky of getting beautiful weather. You definitely need 2-4 hours to see cliffs from both sides as we only seen it from the left. Unfortunately shops are closing at 18, so if you come in the afternoon and want to purchase fe souvenirs you better do it before walk.

Very easy to book online. No hassle at all. Live the experience. It is such a beautiful place to visit.

First time visit Cliffs of Moher and was amazing experience

Such a gorgeous place, and very informative guides.
