    An early start is required to make your tour possible today. Our recommendation to maximise your time on this specific route is 07:30. Your driver guide will pick you up from the entrance of your hotel or residence and efficiently navigate out of the city in the direction of Galway on Ireland’s scenic west coast.

  • Galway City (90 minutes approx)

    Due to the distances involved today and Galway’s notorious rush hour traffic it’s only possible to visit Galway city this morning - the delays associated with early evening traffic around the city would make an afternoon stop impossible in one day (due to legislation capping drivers’ hours).

    You’ll arrive in Galway around three hours after departure and enjoy the mid- morning atmosphere and bohemian vibe at leisure.

    Maybe grab a takeout coffee or breakfast tea from coffeewerk + press on Quay Street. Nearby you’ll find unique local shopping opportunities. Thomas Dillon at 1 Quay Street offers an excellent range of traditional Claddagh rings. Meanwhile Aran Sweater Market at 23 Quay Street stocks an amazing range of traditional knitwear inspired by rugged island life.

    Stroll through Shop Street, Quay Street, The Latin Quarter, Eyre Square and Spanish Arch and taste salt on the air from the mighty Atlantic. The beautiful Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven (Galway Cathedral) is also noteworthy for many guests.

    Approx 90 minutes after arrival in Galway regroup with your driver for the onward journey.

  • Wild Atlantic Way & Burren Region

    Your journey continues south along the Wild Atlantic Way and through the iconic limestone Burren region. Think traditional stone walls and some of the most unique countryside you have ever seen. This stretch of the tour from Galway city the Cliffs of Moher will take approximately 90 minutes depending on weather and seasonal traffic.

  • Doolin Village or Liscannor Village (60 minutes approx)

    You’ll arrive in the townlands surrounding the Cliffs just in time for lunch and there are some good local options to choose from including pubs, cafes and sandwich shops. The village of Doolin is very popular with a small selection of good pubs which are famous for traditional music in the evenings including O’Connor’s and McGann’s. Meanwhile nearby Liscannor also offers one or two excellent eateries such as Vaughan’s Anchor Inn. Discuss with your driver ahead of time and he’ll be well placed to advise based on how you are feeling on the day. The time available for lunch most days will be approximately 60 minutes.

  • Cliffs of Moher

    After a delicious lunch and maybe a cheeky swift pint of Guinness or Galway Hooker your driver will take you the short distance to Cliffs of Moher, today’s main attraction. Here along a 10km stretch of Europe’s western edge you’ll enjoy unparalleled views over the Atlantic Ocean, Aran Islands and mountain ranges of Connemara across Galway Bay. Enjoy a coastal stroll and check out the telescopes and viewing platforms to spot local wildlife including puffins and dolphins. Amazing photo opportunities await. On this itinerary you will enjoy approximately 90 minutes at Cliffs of Moher.

9 out of 10 guests will typically opt for Option A. Option A is considered the "classic" Cliffs of Moher route which has proven most popular over the last decade. Option B is still an excellent tour but just gives a taste of Galway to those who particularly wish to see it or say they've been there. Unfortunately, it is not possible to spend more time in Galway when paired with Cliffs of Moher.

This route is priced slightly higher than Option A. If you book Option A and wish to subsequently change to Option B any supplement will need to be settled by secure payment link before departure (within normal hours of business). During busy periods, changes to day tour routes may not be possible where requested less than 48 hours before departure.
