    I had a great trip. Our guide was Bud, a super cheerful guy who made what could feel like a very long bus ride a lot of fun and fly by! He gave good tips for where to go on the stops. The cliffs are beautiful and we got enough time to trot around and take photo's. We had a tasty lunch in the pub with very quick service as well. The ride from the cliffs to Galway is full of gorgeous views. The stop in Galway was just long enough to have a good stroll around the centre. I would 100% recommend going on this trip.
