Description - What to expect

Depart Dublin and relax on a luxury coach as you embark on your Dublin to Cliffs of Moher tour, to some of the best places in the West of Ireland. Enjoy the scenery while your guide tells you a bit of Irish history along the way and fills you with some interesting facts about Ireland.

Your first stop is at Kilmacduagh Monastery. The monastery is sometimes referred to as "the seven Churches" with regards to the abundance of 11th to 13th-century ruins located in the area. The round tower is one of the finest examples in Ireland and is leaning by more than 2 feet off vertical. Legend has it that in the Diocese of Kilmacduagh, no man will ever die from lightning. This was put to the test when one unlucky man was struck, but the force of the bolt made him fly through the air into County Clare, where he died.

The Cliffs of Moher is your next stop and definitely the highlight of the day! With a maximum height of 214m (702 feet in old money ) and about 14 km long you will truly be amazed. On a good day, you will be able to see the Aran Islands, the Maumturks, and the Twelve Pins mountain ranges to the north in County Galway. After doing the ledge experience at the visitors' center go and explore the area in both directions. Ranked among the most visited tourist sites in Ireland and a "signature point" on the official Wild Atlantic Way tourist trail.

Next to your Dublin to Cliffs of Moher tour visit Burren and experience the lunar landscape that is unique to all of Ireland. With the warmest ground temperature recordings in the country, you will find Arctic, Mediterranean, and Alpine plants growing in the same area. Scientists claim that of all the butterflies and moths species in Ireland only two are not present here. Can you prove them wrong?

Your final location for the day will be Galway City. Known as the "City of Tribes" you can discover what Galway is hiding from the rest of the world. Home to the largest medieval church still in everyday use in Ireland and numerous other historic buildings. Explore Lynch's castle and the Spanish Arch or take a stroll down Shop street and see the buskers and other artists do they trade. Christopher Columbus found Galway the hard way, we will take you there in comfort.

After Galway, you will head back to Dublin and hopefully, you would have had one of the best days of your holiday.
