Cliffs Of Moher, Atlantic Edge Ocean Walk & Galway City Day Tour from Dublin
Travel with us on one of our wonderful day trips from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. Located on Ireland’s wild rugged Atlantic coast, the cliffs were recently voted as the seventh most wonderful heritage site in the world in a global poll conducted by UNESCO.
Enjoy the breath-taking scenery of Ireland’s rugged West Coast as we travel along the spectacular Wild Atlantic Way to one of Ireland’s national treasures and a UNESCO Global Geopark, the Burren.
Next, we visit the medieval city of Galway and enjoy a 30-minute guided tour of this historic and vibrant city, widely known as Ireland’s “most Irish” city, before returning to Dublin with wonderful memories.
Cliffs of Moher
Departing from Dublin your day tour to the Cliffs of Moher will travel through the counties of Kildare and Limerick before arriving in County Clare. We will pass by Bunratty Castle, a 15th-century medieval Norman fortress, and on through Lahinch, a world famous surfing and golfing destination. Enjoy the view of these world famous golf links along the Atlantic coast.
Arriving at the Cliffs of Moher you will be struck by their sheer enormity. The cliffs are 214m high at the highest point and run for 8 kilometres along the western seaboard of County Clare.
Your tour price includes the benefit of a premium admittance ticket to the Atlantic Edge, an exciting interpretive centre and a new visitor experience. Situated in a large domed cave, here you can see photographs, exhibits, displays and experiences that will add a layer of enchantment to your visit.
Continue the tour through the dome and experience a virtual reality cliff face adventure known as The Ledge, shown in the audiovisual theatre allowing you to experience life at the cliff face both above and below sea level.
At the cliff face, you’ll experience the power of nature at work as the fresh air blows in over the Atlantic Ocean. The sheer height of the cliffs and the spectacular views are sure to leave a lasting impression.
During your 2 hours stop at the cliffs, you can choose to Visit O’Brien’s Tower, which stands proudly on a headland off these wonderful cliffs, and enjoy views of the Aran Islands and Galway Bay.
Wild Atlantic Way and the Burren
From the Cliffs of Moher we continue our amazing scenic journey along the edge of Europe, the Atlantic Coast.
Our journey continues into the Burren National Park where you can see 75% of Ireland’s native flora and numerous ancient monuments, megalithic tombs (which are older than the pyramids!), fairy forts and famous Celtic crosses.
There is much to be seen as we leave the Burren and begin our journey to Galway city. Travelling around the scenic Galway Bay, you will be treated to stunning ocean views and points of interest such as Blackhead Lighthouse, Dunguaire Castle and Kinvara fishing village.
Storytellers at heart, our tour guides will unlock centuries worth of stories as we traverse the scenic landscape, all the while with a dedicated driver who knows every twist and turn on the road ahead.
Galway Day Tour
Next, we arrive in Galway City, described by the writer W.B Yeats as “The Venice of the West”. Galway, the city of the tribes, is Ireland’s cultural capital. This free-spirited, artistic and bohemian city has an ambience all of its own.
Stretch your legs during our 30 minutes guided walking tour of the city and learn all about this medieval city and its Spanish trading connections.
After the walking tour, you are free to explore the cobblestoned pedestrian streets that are continuously alive with music. Discover the hidden gems of Galway’s speciality shops, boutiques and cafes.
Saying goodbye to Galway, you can now sit back and relax as we begin our journey back to Dublin with wonderful memories to be sure.
