We leave historic Limerick City, and en-route we will view King Johns Castle and the river Shannon. We continue via County Clare to the west coast of Ireland.
We spend 1.5 hours at the Cliffs of Moher - one of the world's greatest natural attractions. The cliffs stand 1/3 the size of the Empire State Building and have large populations of puffins and gannets. You can enjoy a hike or a relaxed walk, while gazing in amazement at this geological and natural beauty. The Cliffs of Moher also have shops and restaurants, anything from snacks and souvenirs available in plenty. Visitor charges at the Cliffs are included in the tour price saving you €6.
We depart from the Cliffs of Moher for a stop in either Liscannor or Doolin, lovely villages where you may wish to enjoy a traditional or modern Irish lunch (optional), maybe paired with a local beer (optional). On the way we will have superb views of the Atlantic coast and the Aran Islands.
We depart Doolin and visit one of the most unusual limestone surfaces anywhere - the Burren, a lunar landscape dating back 300 million years with unique features such as underground lakes and waterfalls. If it's the right season you may see one of the 26 different types of orchids that grow here right on beautiful Galway Bay. As we stroll through this rugged surface we understand how Neil Armstrong felt when he set foot on the moon in August 1969.
This afternoon we'll round off the day by taking a spectacular drive along the coast as far as Black Head and romantic Galway Bay. Sit back, take in the scenery and imagine how the locals lived on this incredible land over the centuries.
We stop at Bunratty Castle, for the chance to grab a coffee and refresh yourself. You can easily imagine Norman Knights, Gaelic warriors and Jousting Chieftains at this hallowed spot.
We leave Bunratty Castle for the short return drive to Limerick. The tour finishes at 16:30 approx.
