Full description

Discover the beauty of the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher on a day trip from Galway. Take a bus through the karst landscape 'The Burren' and search for dolphins on the ferry to Inisheer Island. Spend free time exploring and admire the Cliffs of Moher on the return ferry. 

Depart Galway and journey through the lunar landscape of The Burren as your make your way to the Cliffs of Moher. Pass pretty villages like Kilcolgan and Ballyvaughan on the way to Doolin.

Board the ferry for a 30-minute crossing to Inisheer, and keep a look out for bottlenose dolphins on the way to the smallest of the Aran Islands. Get some free time to explore the ancient sites at your own pace. Use the time to hire a bike or explore by pony and trap.

Cruise beneath the Cliffs of Moher on the return ferry crossing. Then, travel to the eco-friendly visitors center, where you can stroll along the cliff top before the return trip to Galway via the famous "matchmaking" town of Lisdoonvarna.

A great experience…the Cliffs are breathtaking especially if you are lucky to have clear weather. The island of Inisheer was also a nice treat. We took a pony trap ride to tour the island, well worth it! Our guide, Pather gave us plenty of Irish history to make this a well-rounded day of sightseeing.

Our lovely tour guide, John, was friendly, informative and had a bit of craic and devilment in him. He assured us of his credentials as a professional driver before we hit the windy roads of Co. Claire. When we got to Doolin, the water looked quite choppy. When I mentioned this to John, he had a glint in his eyes as he agreed that the water was indeed choppy. I suspect he knew that we had left our sea legs at home (or maybe he knew that we just didn't have sea legs in the first place). To say I was feeling afraid and nauseous is an understatement. We survived the trip over to the island and in true Irish fashion, experienced about 3 seasons while there. We did a very enjoyable tour of the island on the back of a tractor (organised by John). We were due to get the ferry out to the cliffs but the conditions were top bad so that was cancelled (thankfully). John drove us to the cliffs and once the rain stopped and the sun came out, we enjoyed beautiful views. Overall, very enjoyable tour.
