This route is packing a little more into the day than most Cliffs of Moher tour itineraries, so we're on the road bright and early to get a head start on the day.
Recline into the comfortable seats of your touring coach and watch the world go by, Irish style.
All going smoothly, we expect to reach Cliffs of Moher by 11:00
You'll enjoy approximately 1 hour 30 minutes minutes at this massively popular natural attraction.
Perhaps go for a stroll or short hike along the coastal paths or simply relax close to the main visitor centre with viewing platforms and telescopes offering incredible views from different vantage points.
There is an abundance of local wildlife to look out for from the colonies of puffins nesting on the cliff face to pods of dolphins and whales breaching far below.
At 700ft above the surface of the ocean, the cliffs are two thirds the height of Manhattan's Empire State.
Clear days give amazing views of the cliffs to the south, Aran Islands to the west and Galway Bay and mountain ranges of Connemara to the north. See those tiny objects on the water below? Those are the yachts upon which you'll have the chance to sail after lunch!
EUR 10.00 entrance fee is included to Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre in the price of this tour
Regroup with the tour guide around 12:40 and travel together to the nearby village of Liscannor. Delicious local food and drink options await.
The tour will arrive into the village of Doolin at approximately 14:00. The fleet of local boats have just returned from the particularly busy lunchtime slots and are readying themselves for the quieter afternoon sailings.
We'll introduce you to the skippers of the best local operators and your cruise will push back from the pier as soon as all passengers are aboard.
The boat cruise gives you a completely different perspective of the Cliffs of Moher but is also an exciting experience itself. Hear the motors hum, the seagulls cry and the mighty Atlantic roar against the monumental edge of western Europe.
Just across Galway Bay are the Aran Islands of Inis Mór (big island), Inis Meain (medium island) and Inis Oirr (small island) - can you tell which is which!?
We were lucky to experience the pilot of a Dublin to JFK flight roll his Airbus to show off the cliffs on a clear day at 30,000 feet - quite a sight to behold. Equally, looking up and seeing the myriad trails of transatlantic flights against the blue summer sky is incredible - nature at this scale is amazing.
NB: we have left the Boat Cruise optional so that all passengers can make up their mind whether or not to take part on the day- taking weather and how you are feeling into account. Due to our strong relationships with local operators, there will be space for anyone who wishes to participate and you can pay dockside on the day. Prices from children to students, seniors and adults range from EUR 15.00 - EUR 28.00
The boats will arrive back at Doolin Pier by 15:00 and the tour will reassemble for the return journey. Your driver will take you back to Dublin as swiftly as possible by freeway through rolling Irish countryside.
There will be a comfort stop on the way for restrooms, coffee, water, sodas and snacks. Enjoy the free wifi and USB ports as you relax and share impressions of your day with friends and family.
You'll be back downtown by 19:00 approx. in good time to enjoy the full range of pub and restaurants around Grafton Street, Temple Bar and beyond.
We hope you have enjoyed your visit to the west coast including Cliffs of Moher and optional Boat Cruise.
