We went on two different tours with Extreme Ireland/Irish Day Tours and both were fantastic. The tours we did were the Giant's Causeway tour and the Cliffs of Moher tour. Our guides for both were great. Very informative about the history of Ireland and the areas that we were going to. The time at main attractions was adequate, it gives you enough time to see them, but not quite enough time to do the longer trail/hikes. So if you want to spend more than 1:30 to 2 hours at the Causeway or the Cliffs, then I wouldn't suggest the tour. I thought it was well put together and we had a great time!

THE CLIFFS OF MOHER – DOOLIN – THE BURREN NATIONAL PARK – Galway CitY
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 as we discover one of Ireland’s 7 Wonders, the Cliffs of Moher. 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 tour takes you to one of the best natural attractions in Ireland. In addition, we will explore the delightful village of Doolin, Burren National Park, and Galway City.
Dare to peak over the 120 metre high cliffs and enjoy breath-taking views from every angle. Feel the sea breeze on your face and listen to the waves crash along the base of the cliffs. Learn the history of Cornelius O’Brien, a man ahead of his time and wander the edge of the cliffs to O’Brien’s Tower. You will lose yourself as you look out across the open horizon at the infinite ocean.
After exploring the cliffs, enjoy a delicious meal in the charming village of Doolin. A beautiful village with outstanding food, we recommend visiting at Fitzpatrick’s Pub.
Our journey then takes us to the limestone wonder called The Burren. Colourful flowers have burst through the cracks of the limestone pavement, making it a truly unique location and a thriving ecosystem. Because of the mild microclimate some varieties of flowers can only be found in this region.
Last but not least we will visit the vibrant city of Galway. Discover brightly colored pubs playing live music, and cafes with front row seats to street performers. Take a brisk walk along the beach and look upon flamboyant art from exhibitions around the world.
Our friendly and experienced guides will keep you company on your travels and provide you with entertaining and informative commentary.

TESTIMONIALS - Cliffs of Moher Tour
“Daytrip to cliffs of Moher and Galway”
Excellent trip to west coast of Ireland. Driver/guide Larry outstanding. Made the trip premium by good and funny guiding and that we always were ahead of the other bus companies. Recommended.
Cliffs of Moher Day Trip
Great trip. Our driver/guide, Kevin, was a wonderful leader for the day. He was always concerned about the well-being and comfort of the folks on the tour and added immensely to the whole experience with his commentary about the areas we passed through and the some of the history of Ireland. The Cliffs are magnificent! Lunch is Doolin was a pleasant surprise. I loved the locally brewed beer and the delicious treacle and beer bread! Definitely recommend!
“Cliffs of Moher - The most beautiful thing I have ever seen”
Our tour guide was very friendly and had a good sense of humor. He gave good historic stories of areas we traveled through. It was a great way to tour the country side and also get to and from such a great attraction.
“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.
