Our well trained guides will tell you about Irish legend, myths and history so that you understand why Ireland look and function the way it does.
Galway Plaza Service Station (rest stop)
Because we want to both show you as much as possible in one day and make your bus trip as nice as possible, we stop in the service station for a toilet break and for getting a coffee and snack to break up the drive.
During our 30-minute top at Kilmacduagh Monastery, you will have the opportunity to take pictures of a 12th century round tower and an abundance of 11th to 13th century ruins. Kilmacduagh monastery is considered to have the finest collection of early Christian monastic building in all of Ireland. Something only seen on Glendalough tours from Dublin. Round towers at monastic sites in Ireland are very rare and this is one of the best examples in Ireland. And we think this round tower that is leaning over by more than 2 feet is extremely unique. This stop is an amateur photographer dream.
Travel along the WILD ATLANTIC WAY
We will pass through small villages like Corofin. We choose this route due to the abundance of animals and farm activity that you will see. Lots of horses, sheep and cattle on the way. This route also takes us back into the Burren National park passing some amazing lakes and offering up some stunning views over the landscape.
CLIFFS OF MOHER
The main stop of the day on this Cliffs of Moher tour will obviously be the Cliffs of Moher. We will give you at least 1.5 hours to explore this natural site. The Cliffs of Moher is the most visited site in Ireland for good reason. Included in your ticket price will be your entry fees to the visitor centre.
Here you will have time to explore the “ledge experience”, see what is below the cliffs, plant and animal life, and much more. And then explore the cliffs on your own. Spanning more than 702 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, this is a site to behold. On a clear day you will be able to see the Aran Islands and even Galway and Galway bay and the Twelve Ben’s.
You might be a little confused when we arrive at the Burren. The very unique national park looks nothing like the rest of Ireland. Forget the green flowing hills as far as the eye can see, and imagine being on the surface of the moon. We will stop for 30 minutes to give you some time to explore this strange landscape that has Arctic, Mediterranean and Alpine plants. Yes, Mediterranean plants in Ireland.
During the last ice age, this strange landscape was formed when the ice melted and resulted in this Karst landscape. The rocks at the Burren is considered the oldest in the world.
While spending 30 minutes at the Burren, you will find it hard to believe that you are standing on the spot where the highest ground temperatures in Ireland are being recorded. Hence the Mediterranean plants growing here
Travel along the WILD ATLANTIC WAY
From Lahinch, we are going to follow the Wild Atlantic Way all the way to Galway. Before going on our unique route again to stops no other company will show you.
GALWAY (self explore)
The charming old world city of Galway is our next stop (around 1 hour). After showing you a bit of Galway, we will let you explore this charming little city by yourself. Taking in the cobbled street, castles and buskers that make Galway popular as a stop on a Cliffs of Moher tour. It’s hard to imagine how Galway managed to keep its old world charm during the fast expansion it saw during the 1990’s
Walking down shop street you might see some amazing buskers plying their trade.Despite being a small city, Galway is well cemented into Irish history. Even Christopher Columbus ones visited Galway. Not to mention it is the birth place of the world famous Claddagh ring. The Spanish arch and Lynch’s Castle are two of the must see attractions on the early part of this Cliffs of Moher tour from Dublin.
Arrive back in Dublin around 7:30pm/ 8:30pm
*Please note that all times are approximate. The locations might be visited in a different order, depends on traffic and weather.
**As people don’t want to spend that much time in the cold countryside, when it starts getting cold, we might give a little bit less time at the Cliffs of Moher and add the time onto the Galway stop.
