My first tour purchased thru Viator and I was beyond pleased! This was an all day tour and it went by so fast! Our guide was phenomenal, his stories were entertaining and never boring. He loves his country and loves to share it with others! We stopped by the Abbey, the Caves, the Cliffs of Moher and had lunch at a wonderful Pub. I would highly recommend this tour and would definitely do it again!

We took this tour with the boat cruise, but all in all the boat cruise is not all spectacular. I would have preferred to take the tour of Cliffs of Moher and staid an extra 1/2 hrs to see it from the top. The view is breathtaking, but be prepared to face a lot of wind.

This trip was amazing even though with the weather we had to skip the boat ride the guide made the time up to us by giving us extra at other stops. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a nice easy no worry trip to the cliffs. The guide was very informative with the history of the area.

We absolutely loved this tour! It was one of the highlights of our entire trip. The cliffs are beautiful of course. There is a bit of climbing so be ready for that. It was pretty windy the day we were there, but it was well worth getting to the top to see the amazing scenery. The boat ride was great! The water was pretty rough, though, and a few people did get sick. However, we loved seeing the cliffs from the boat. We had lunch at McGann's Pub and it was delicious! Interesting place and great staff. The sheepdog demonstration was so much fun! Those dogs are unbelievable. We were all very impressed with this stop of the tour. Well worth the time to stop and watch. Our driver was Leo and he was great as well. The bus was comfortable and the countryside on the way was gorgeous. This tour is so worth the money.

The Cliffs of Moher was a bucket list item for me so I was thrilled to see this tour combined views from both land and sea! The sea was a bit choppy but well worth it to get a spectacular view from below, and the views from above were also not-to-be-missed. Only complaint was a lot of bus time!

Trip was incredible! We were in a great bus with a terrific driver-a world traveled surfer so we had some things in common with him! The boat cruise was the BEST part of our trip to Ireland and we enjoyed it completely! We had some wind and a little misting of rain but the view and the closeness the captain got us to the cliffs was beyond our expectations-we cannot encourage others more, to take the boat cruise premium tour! Hiking at the top of the cliffs and lunch in a little ferry town of Doolin was just perfect and we cannot sing praises enough about this trip! Thank you for making our honeymoon incredible!

Be prepared for a long day. Really well done, doesn't feel like a tour more independence than you'd expect. Weather permitted and can delay if there's bad weather or fog. Tour guide was wonderful and didn't bore you to death with unassociated details. Would definalty recommend this to anyone looking at a tour in Ireland.

This tour was great! The driver, David, was so knowledgeable and funny, that the trip was enjoyable. It was interesting just to see the way these buses maneuver the narrow roads! The sights were beautiful throughout. The main attraction was the Cliffs of Moher. We had the opportunity to see them from the water and then from above. The boat ride out to the cliffs was fun! The ocean was a bit rough but we never felt scared. On the way to the cliffs we stopped and observed an amazing display of sheep dog training. In my opinion this trip is well worth the relatively small fee.

This is a good tour if you want to see the Cliffs of Moher from water and to walk along the cliffs. We visited the Caherconnell Fort, and watch a sheep-herding demonstration with sheep dogs by their local farmer. It was intertaining. We had a lunch stop in the Doolin village. The village is beautiful. The only thing we felt rushed during the lunch and there wasn't much time to walk throught the Dolin village. Overall- good tour.
