What to expect

Explore the beautiful Burren region and visit the Cliffs of Moher with ease on this day tour from Galway. Travel through Burren’s rugged landscapes with your guide and discover local attractions such as the 16th-century Dunguaire Castle and Aillwee Cave. Explore walking trails on top of the mighty Cliffs of Moher at your leisure and enjoy panoramic views over the coastal scenery. Watch the skies for sightings of native birdlife, then stop in Doolin on route back to Galway.

Your journey to the Cliffs of Moher from Galway will bring you through the exposed, windswept landscapes of the Burren. Your expert guide will share the history and some interesting facts about this Western seaboard of Ireland. You'll get off the coach to explore the unique limestone terrain, jagged coastline and rare flora.

Travelling South from Galway, you will visit the Dunguaire Castle, an iconic 1520s castle with a 75 foot tower. This picturesque castle is seated along the Galway Bay in Kinvarra where you can take some great photos. Your tour will then continue to the Aillwee Cave, a series of dramatic underground caverns and tunnels. You’ll have the option of a guided tour of the caves or visiting the Birds of Prey Experience, or simply having a tea and coffee break at a local cafe.

Following the Aillwee Caves, you’ll travel straight to the Cliffs of Moher over Corkscrew Hill where you can take in the views from several lookout platforms. At the South Platform, you can discover the unique colony of seabirds who call the cliff’s edge home. Among the hillside is an eco-friendly visitor centre where you’ll find interactive exhibits, aerial tours and a virtual reality cliff face adventure.

Having worked up an appetite you'll then travel to Doolin for lunch, and soon after, travel back to Galway along the coastal route.
