Traveler Tips

I thought it was just enough time, you have to move quickly tho, so don't spend TOO much time in one place at the cliffs
Would not want to drive on Ireland's county roads, so this is an excellent way to see the sights.
Not the warmest time of year but if you’re prepared, you’ll be fine.

We had an amazing day trip to the Cliffs with multiple stops and the best tour guide around, Gary! There was something to see along every leg of the trip and Gary was full of facts and interesting stories throughout the day. Definitely recommend this tour!
Gary is the best!
Stacy_M, Mar 2023
Gary is by far the best driver. So knowledgeable and friendly. He ensures you have a great time. One of the roads we were supposed to take was closed but he described it so well we did not even miss it. We were lucky enough to have a pretty clear view from the Cliffs. We made a stop on the way back on what he described as “like the surface of the moon”. The views were spectacular.
Best day of our week in...

Best tour to Cliffs of Moher
meghan_l, Mar 2023
Our driver made this trip! We loved the history we learned. The extra mini stops along the way - abandoned castles with remarkable stories. Lunch was incredible! I thought I was going to be disappointed at the Cliffs of Moher. Thinking it wouldn’t be enough time. It was. So worth the trip! We got an extra seaside stop on the way back too. That was maybe even more stunning since we were able to get a little closer to the water. Amazing day! Have already recommended this to people and will continue to do so
Loved it!
Rosanna_R, Mar 2023

A perfect last day

A Must-Do Day while in Galway!
Hannah_L, Mar 2023
This tour exceeded our expectations! Our tour guide Gary was phenomenal and incredibly knowledgeable, sharing stories and Irish history throughout the day (and even allowed for built in a much needed nap time on the drive back)! Highlights of the trip are getting to see and walk around the Dunguarie Castle, visiting an ancient tomb site in the Burren National Park, a traditional Irish pub lunch in a local spot in Doolin, the Cliffs of Moher (of course!), and an additional stop with some more cliffs which Gary called the “Lunar Walk” because it truly does look like you’re walking in the moon! This tour gives you plenty of time to see the cliffs and explore the national park while also allowing you to see all kinds of local Irish towns and stops that you likely would not see on your trip to Galway and the cliffs. Our tour guide also offered us lots of insight on the Aran Islands and places to visit while enjoying our stay in Galway. After our tour we went and enjoyed a restaurant and pub with live Irish music per recommendation of your guide!
A well planned and executed outing
Michael_F, Mar 2023
