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.
