My husband and I did two day tours, only planned on doing one to the Cliffs. But that tour was so fun we booked another to the Giants Causeway! So happy we did that!! We had Kevin & Wayne! They we're both so funny and knew so much about history! I've recommended Irish day tours to three friends since getting back home just this week!! I'll keep spreading the word, because y'all are worth every penny!!

THE CLIFFS OF MOHER – DOOLIN – THE BURREN NATIONAL PARK – CORCOMROE ABBEY – KINVARA Harbour
Ireland is known for beautiful rolling green hills, pots of gold and cheeky leprechauns but she is also known for something else – dramatic cliff edges. Join us on our Cliffs of Moher tour as we discover some of the most dramatic cliffs in Ireland and one of Ireland’s 7 Wonders. We take an unforgettable journey to the Wild Atlantic Way where you are rewarded with dramatic and breathtaking views that are nothing short of amazing. This Cliffs of Moher tour takes you to some of the best natural attractions in Ireland.
Our tour is structured in a way that allows you to get the most out of this stunning area. Along with your fellow travellers, discover the best of Ireland’s dramatic coastline. We travel to The Burren, Corcomroe Abbey and other awe-inspiring sights.
To keep you company on your travels and provide you with entertaining and informative commentary along the way, we have friendly and experienced guides. Be enchanted by Ireland’s thriving west coast. We will educate you not only on the flora and fauna of this area but the fascinating history. No holiday in Ireland is complete without a trip to the majestic Cliffs of Moher.
Visit O’Brien’s Tower, watch an interactive video at the Visitor’s Center and stroll the clifftop, admiring the panoramic views out to the ocean and the Aran Islands. In good weather, we can have lunch next to the cliffs. Another inviting option is to head to the charming village of Doolin for lunch. Doolin is a charming village with excellent food options. Try the seafood!
Our journey then takes us to the limestone wonder called The Burren, which is a rocky yet fertile landscape for plants and flowers. Colourful flowers have burst through the clints and grikes of this limestone pavement, making it a truly unique location and a thriving ecosystem. Some varieties of flowers can only be found in this region. Navigate the rocky surface as you explore the Burren’s landscape. After we’ve strolled around the Burren, we will visit the historic Corcomroe Abbey. Go back in time as you explore the ruin and note the intricate carvings that remain.
We return to Dublin via a different route to ensure you have the opportunity to see more of the delightful west coast. We stop in Kinvara, a seaside village on Galway Bay. Take in the lovely views and have the opportunity to see Dunguaire Castle for a spectacular photo opportunity.

TESTIMONIALS - Cliffs of Moher Tour
“An amazing day trip from Dublin!”
This was a fantastic trip on November 6, 2016!! We had a large comfortable bus, which left early in the morning. Gerard was our amazing driver for the day, and he was extremely informative and a bit funny as well. We raced to the Cliffs, and got there well before the rest of the tour buses. Plenty of photos later, we took off and were the first bus to arrive for lunch. A nice country lunch, with even a vegetarian option. Then we took off for the Burren, weaving along the beautiful rocky coastline. Stops were at an ancient monastery, a castle and for a treat and a restroom break, we stopped at Hazel Mountain Chocolate Organic Factory. When we passed by Galway, there was a huge rainbow!

“Cliffs of Moher Day Tour”
This trip was fantastic!! It starts very early in the morning (6:50am) so be prepared with a cup of coffee but, you won't even need it if your driver is Joseph! He starts the morning with an introduction, a schedule of the day, and some good sing-alongs. He definitely LOVES to sing and get everyone involved so, if you are looking to just sit in silence on the bus, it probably won't happen. We left Dublin, made a quick rest stop about an hour and a half into the drive and continued on to the Cliffs of Moher. In total it was about 3 hours or so. He stops at a few other places, like a smaller area with cliffs, an Abbey, a cute chocolate shop, and a great small pub for some lunch. It is definitely a LONG day but he is very knowledgable and keeps you engaged and informed the entire time. All in all, long day but well worth it. Thanks Joseph!
“Well organised and excellent tours!”
I took two tours, one of the Cliffs of Moher and the other of the Giants Causeway. Both tours were perfect, the drivers were very professional and knowledgeable. Lovely accents too! The tours are very well timed, they have planned all activities and stops to the minute and it really makes for a perfect tour. The coaches are extremely comfortable, the stops for refreshments are great and the information given during the tours was top notch. Loved the Irish music also that our drivers played in the coach. It was lovely to ride through Ireland's countryside listening to Irish tunes. I had the best time and definitely want to take more of the available day tours to see more of this beautiful island. Ireland is a stunning location and Irish Day Tours chooses the best locations to see and experience. Highly recommended!
“Great trips to Cliffs of Moher and Blarney Castle”
Took 2 1 day tours first day to Cliffs of Moher. Our guide was friendly and informative and we had an outstanding time. Perfectly clear day and had ample time there and along the coast. Top notch. Second day to Blarney, our guide Tony was great. 2 travelers to another tour company was dropped off by taxi at our location by mistake. Tony got us on the bus, drove the travelers across town to catch their tour, so it wouldn't mess up their vacation! Great customer service. Had a great time at Blarney, Tony even told us a ghost story on the way home after stopping at a pub for a quick pint and we arrived back home! Strongly recommend Extreme Ireland!!

“So much fun!”
We booked a tour to the cliffs of Moher. We were welcomed by Mike, our tour guide for the day. Mike made our trip so much fun, he has a lot of knowledge about Ireland and has a great sense of humor. The bus was large but very comfortable. Mike entertained us with fun facts about Ireland and even sang Irish songs along the way. We made several stops on our way to the cliffs, one of them was de Obama Plaza. Appearantly Obama ancestors are from this small village/town in the middle of nowhere in Ireland, where they named this place to him. When arriving at the cliffs, it was so foggy that we couldn't see anything of the cliffs. What a shame, but there is nothing you can do about it. We went for lunch earlier than planned where Mike promised to call back up to ask whether the fog may have disappeared after lunch, so we could possibly go back up again. After lunch in a small pub - again, in the middle of nowhere - the fog did not disappear, unfortunately. Mike drove us to a small harbour, where we could see the cliffs from another angle and there we saw the cliffs on a distance, with a fog on top of the cliffs. Very nice view as well. After making a few stops on our way home, we arrived back in Dublin at 7-7.30pm.
It was a great tour and we would recommend it to anyone who is going to vitis Dublin (or Ireland). The price is also very reasonable, for what you get.

“Cliffs of Moher ... Great place...on west coast of Ireland...”
This is a great place to be, specially on a sunny day. Please do check weather conditions before planning travel. This is around 250 kms from Dublin (capital of Ireland) and you travel from East cost to West coast for this attraction. The cliffs though not the highest in the world are a sight to watch. They are straight down cliffs and not tapering ones. Water of the ocean is clean. There are 2 sides to the cliffs, left side as you enter is not that well maintained and is not recommended for a visit. Right side is well maintained with clean paths. They have clearly marked the end point and any person going ahead has to go on his own risk. Its a bit colder due to open place and ocean. Worth spending 2-3 hours.
