  • From Galway: Aran Islands & Cliffs of Moher Tour with Cruise

    2. From Galway: Aran Islands & Cliffs of Moher Tour with Cruise

    Depart Galway and journey through the lunar landscape of The Burren en route to the Cliffs of Moher. Pass pretty villages like Kilcolgan and Ballyvaughan en route 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.

    Damien gave us an excellent tour. He was a lot of fun and very good at his job. The Aran island tour is well worth the trip. Very picturesque landscape and has to be seen in person to fully appreciate the beauty of the area. Would recommend this hands down

  • From Galway: Cliffs of Moher Explorer Tour

    7. From Galway: Cliffs of Moher Explorer Tour

    Depart from the Kinlay Hostel at 9:00 AM and take the scenic journey along the Wild Atlantic Way, through the lunar-like landscape of the Burren and on to the Cliffs of Moher. Pass  the picturesque villages of Clarenbridge, Kilcolgan, Ballindereen, Kinvara, Ballyvaughan and Doolin. Turing right at Ballyvaughan, your local, driver/guide will take you south following the Wild Atlantic Way. Witness the power of the Atlantic Ocean as it battles the coastline of Ireland. Your driver / guide will drop you at the Quay at Doolin, from here you start your walk via the village of Doolin along the cliff path to the Cliffs of Moher. Have 5 hours to yourself and meet your drive/guide at the visitor's center.  Return to Galway via Lisdoonvarna, home to the world famous matchmaking festival held every September.

    A really beautiful hike along the cliffs but 5hrs is way too much time even at a leisurely pace. Felt we were just killing time waiting for the return bus ride even after stopping for coffee in the pub before starting the hike and having lunch and touring the interpretive centre after and this is the only reason I wouldn’t recommend this tour. If you can find your own way to the trail head you could hike up and back, or cab it back and probably have a better lunch in the local pub.
