CLIFFS OF MOHER:
First stop of the day is at the incredible Cliffs of Moher. The Cliffs are Ireland’s number-one natural visitor attraction and receive millions of visitors year after year. Towering far above the wild Atlantic Ocean below, the cliffs offer enjoyable walks with incredible views out over the Atlantic Ocean – with Galway Bay and the Aran Islands off in the distance. You might also spot a wide variety of exotic birds, such as puffins and gannets – as the area is home to an exciting variety of species. The Cliffs of Moher also provides a fantastic visitor exhibition, gift shop and café for you to enjoy during your visit here. The admission cost is included in the price of your ticket and also provides you entrance to the Atlantic Edge exhibition – an in depth experience of the Cliffs of Moher – which has been honored with many awards since its opening.
No doubt a stroll along the cliff tops has helped you to work up an appetite – which is why we have scheduled a lunch stop in the coastal village of Doolin. Popular with surfers and beach goers, the village boasts a range of fantastic pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy some traditional Irish cuisine (try the seafood chowder), and relax –as the locals do – over a pint of the black stuff. Your guide will be more than happy to recommend an eatery to suit your taste and budget.
After lunch, enjoy a leisurely drive north along the Atlantic coast, as we make our way towards the Burren. This fascinating landscape, which is over 300 million years old, boasts incredible features such as lakes and waterfalls below ground level, as well as a range of exotic flora and fauna species which, unlike anywhere else on earth, grow alongside one another here. Be sure to have your camera ready to capture the wonder of this unique region.
No visit to Ireland would be complete without visiting one of the enchanting castles that we are lucky to have located throughout our island. Imagine yourself living back in the times of ancient Kings, Queens and Knights as you take in the beauty of Bunratty Castle during the short stop here. Feel free to use the time her to enjoy a coffee or a snack to refuel for the short return drive to Limerick City.
