"Erin, yes! Everything was fantastic. We have really enjoyed our day to Moher cliffs and the spectacular Irish countryside. Galway is very charming although the visit was short as we expect. Thank you again!" - AA, Milan, Italy
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our Concierge staff will take care of your entrances, parking and during high- peak times arrange for expedited access - essential on days where some of the world's largest cruise ships are docked at the deep water ports of Dublin and Cork.
Depart Cliffs of Moher by late afternoon. The return journey will take you as efficiently as possible along the motorway through a panorama of agricultural plains which change from emerald green to golden with the changing of the season and the harvest. Depending on the season keep an eye out for lambs, racehorses grazing or herds of black and white dairy cattle which produce the world famous Kerrygold butter.
There will be time for a brief refreshment stop in a service station along the way. Arrive back to your preferred location in time for an evening’s entertainment in the capital. Due to the distances and chauffeur legislation involved, this tour requires a duration of 07:30 – 19:30 or equivalent consecutive hours.
