Full description
Depart Dublin at 6:45 AM and journey through the flat open plain of the Curragh. Pass the Irish National Stud thoroughbred horse breeding facility as your guide shares a wealth of history and information. 

Head to the ruins of Kilmacduagh Monastery and its roundhouse – unique for the way it leans over by more than 2 feet. Spend 15-20 minutes here. 

Then, arrive at the Cliffs of Moher for a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean and get approximately 2 hours to explore independently. Go to the interactive Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience in the visitor's centre, where a large multimedia screen displays a bird's-eye view from the cliffs, as well as video from the underwater caves.

Next, discover the lunar landscapes of The Burren with a 15-20 minute visit and hear about the many secrets of this atypical landscape, home to the warmest ground temperature in Ireland. 

Arrive in the city of Galway, where you will have around 1 hour to explore on your own. Discover its old world charm on cobblestone streets that evoke an authentic Ireland of times gone by.

Then drive along the coastal route of the Wild Atlantic Way to Kinvara, passing Dunguaire Castle and the 12 Bens mountain range along the way.

Return to Dublin and get dropped of at the meeting point at around 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

Lisa & Alex were great!! Lisa gave us so much information. And answered all our questions. Alex is an amazing driver, navigating some hairy turns & was quite funny. Our stops were fabulous, the cliffs amazing! And they made sure there was a stop around every 2 hours which allowed stretching!! highly recommended

The trip was an amazing expirience of Irelands nature! The weather played along so we could enjoy the sights with accurate commentary from our really nice guide Lisa! Lisa told us about the geography, the history and some stories about the places and Nature. The friendly guide and the good bus driver Alex was a huge plus to a day full of adventure!

Great bus tour. The tour guide Niall and the bus driver Tony were knowledgable and made the trip fun. A great way to explore the country as a solo traveler. Keep in mind that not all the buses have charging ports for phones, so try to bring a portable charger if you have one. You also only get a little over an hr in Galway, so plan you time wisely.
