This was a nice trip and most people going to Dublin will want to see the Cliffs however you will be in a bus much of the time and there is not much to see on the way. The cliffs are beautiful but they have fairly high solid walls to prevent people from going out too far. Makes it hard for pictures as there will be a wall in the frame. You spend two hours at the cliffs and then head onward. The drive after is very pretty and you will stop again for a short walk for pictures. You stop once again in Galway. We ate at the Cliffs but there are several restaurants in Galway. It was a little too long in Galway, not much there other than shops and food. Overall a fun day and our guides Suzanne and James were great.

Orla and Marshall were wonderful tourgides throughout the entire journey. We had time to sleep and relax, but also got great history lessons along the way. Orla also played us her flute and gave us a taste of the Irish music. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone going to Dublin!

All in all it is a great tour! But we were just so tired from sitting in the bus all day. Now you could say: "Well, you knew what was coming up." And yes, we did. Our guide didn't let the bus sleep tho, he would play Irish (rock) music or would yell in the microphone non-stop. So we didn't get a chance to recover between the different stops. Other than that: you see amazing landscapes and get taught about almost the entire historical background (at least it felt like it). Just keep in mind: you're on the bus for 8 hours to see attractions for 4 hours.
