After delving into the structure’s rich history, continue your journey through Burren National Park, a fascinating limestone landscape reminiscent of the moon’s crater-pocked surface. Be mesmerized by the colossal Megalithic monument of Poulnabrone Dolmen, and then stop just outside the town of Kilfenora to admire some Celtic crosses during a brief interlude. 

Refuel with a hearty Irish lunch in the lively Doolin pub, Gus O’ Connors, esteemed for its great food and vibrant atmosphere, and then continue to the magnificent Cliffs of Moher, a natural monument that is sure to take your breath away. Spend two hours exploring the UNESCO-listed site at your leisure, hiking trails that afford spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean’s crashing waves.

It was a very entertaining and informative trip! The sights will be gorgeous no matter how you travel, no doubt about it, but this trip was very well organised so we made the most of it. Our amazing driver John made sure we saw everything in a timely and organised manner, and made it all the more fun with his positive spirit, good humour, and excellent knowledge of each area (he also knew the best spots for photo ops, no small feat). Lunch was excellent as well (price not included, but the pub was lovely and reasonably priced).

The magic of Moher

It was a wonderful trip and our driver Gary was amazing, he entertained us with stories and local knowledge. When we started to climb the cliffs they were shrouded in thick mists but Gary told us to keep positive. To my utter surprise the mists parted like magic and we saw the cliffs in all their splendour.

Gary (our tour guide) was very knowledgeable and helpful. My mother has mobility issues and steps are difficult for her. Gary jumped in and helped her every time she wanted to get off or on the bus. I enjoyed the whole day with my family. Gary knew the answers to every question that was asked!

The best stops were Moher cliffs and the Dunguire castle. The guide was very friendly....maybe too much speech....the air conditioned bus didn't work and it was too hot

Gary is a great driver and funny guy. The pub you stopped at so we could eat only offers disgusting reheated food. The tour is great overall.

Oh Gary. I've traveled half of the world and never had guide like him - the guy is friendly, knows a lot and share it with group, he's a lot of fun and makes the trip many times better. Anyway - trip is great value - you see a lot of things a lot cheaper than doing it all by yourself and there ia Gary at your side. Cheers from polish couple !

Thank you for your positive review. Here, on the West of Ireland, we get loads of rain between the showers, but it takes people like you to make the sun shine through the clouds!

Tour was amazing! Gary Is a top notch guide. Very knowledgable and funny. Loved whenever he whispered into the mic and gave us a bit of ASMR. Pub lunch was great. Thought we were only stopping at the cliffs and castle but we stopped at a few other attractions that were cool as well. Great value for money feel like we gained a greater appreciation for Galway and the surrounding area.

Amazing trip! We had Gary as our guide. He was such a nice, funny, welcoming, and knowledgeable guide! Loved him! We had pretty bad weather but it did not take away from the beauty of the Cliffs or the fun of the trip. 100% would recommend, the Cliffs are a must do in Ireland, and this trip is a great value!
