Full description

Taste the best of the west of Ireland in just a few hours on this groundbreaking day trip. Start the tour by leaving Galway City behind and sampling south Connemara. Then, explore Inis Oirr (the smallest of the 3 Arran Islands). After this, take a cruise under the Cliffs of Moher. Coming back onto the mainland, take arguably the finest coastal drive in Ireland as you make your way back to Galway through the infamous Burren region. Enjoy a looped route to ensure that you experience a completely different region of the west of Ireland in every hour that passes. Be assured that you won't see the same thing twice.

the tour was very interesting: the day before I had seen the Cliffs of Moher from the ground and in this tour from the boat ... so I could see them in two different perspectives! Stunning Aran Islands (we saw the largest). This tour deserves it: I highly recommend it !! The guide was excellent and very friendly !!

Such a great tour! Lots of helpful information all packed into 9 hours. Specifically our guide Phil was awesome. He really provided a condensed history of all the sites and surrounding area. He kept everyone happy and entertained and provided helpful tips on places to go and check out later on our own. If you are trying to see these 3 sites in 1 day and you are limited on time, than this tour is perfect for you.

Good guide & lovely sightseeing

I was the only participant in the tour, but it was nice that the guide helped me exquisitely. The view of the island was very good. The boat (ferry) takes about 2 hours round trip, but it shakes quite well. Moher from the sea, small cliffs, fishing villages were also good. There were a lot of other tour cars at the meeting place, and it was said that it was different to hear, and eventually I called the host company. (Still, I didn't know it, but it was that when I asked the wagon bus that stopped in front of the hotel.
