Overview
Enjoy hassle-free transportation to the Cliffs of Moher on this guided tour from Galway. In addition to walking across the famous cliffs, take in many more of western Ireland's best sites along the way and listen to informative commentary from your guide. See the 16th-century Dunguaire Castle and Aillwee Cave, and explore the fascinating limestone landscapes of The Burren, where you might spot some rare flora.

  • Make more of the trip by visiting The Burren and Aillwee Cave en route

What to Expect
After pickup from your Galway hotel, meet your guide and journey to the Cliffs of Moher by air-conditioned coach. Your guide provides insights into the history and geology of Ireland's western seaboard. At The Burren, explore the moonlike landscape, home to some of the world's rarest flora. Then, head for Dunguaire Castle, set along Galway Bay, for photos. Continue to Aillwee Cave, a series of dramatic underground caverns and tunnels, for a guided tour or to visit the Birds of Prey Experience (both own expense). Next, walk the trails to several viewing platforms at the Cliffs of Moher. In the summer, look out for puffins and other seabirds nesting on the cliff edge. A visitor center has interactive exhibits and a virtual reality cliff-face adventure. Eat lunch (own expense) at Doolin and then head back to Galway along the coastal route. Your tour concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Fabulous tour of the region. We learnt so much about the history of County Clare, Irish place names and the geology and flora and fauna of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher. John was an outstanding guide. Very informative and knowledgable. Absolutely recommend Lally's as a company.

The views at the Cliffs of Moher are not to be missed. The views are outstanding and absolutely breathtaking. The stop is relatively short (90 minutes), but doable. I highly recommend that you bring water and boots. It's was pretty muddy in parts, but really worth it. I managed

Hi KristiM605, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a nice and informative review. The roads down through the Burren and to Cliffs are quite hard to navigate as you would have seen and we have complete trust in our driver/guides to ensure everyone is comfortable on board. When the weather is fine and dry, we agree that you could spend much longer (even the whole day) at the Cliffs but sometimes that is not always the case on the west of Ireland. Thanks again for the review. We are glad that you had a lovely experience. We hope you can come back again. Go raibh maith agat. Safe travels, Dónal
