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 and you will be rewarded with dramatic and breathtaking views that are nothing short of amazing. First of all this tour takes you to one of the best natural attractions in Ireland. Then 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, furthermore enjoy breath-taking views along the cliffs 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. Consequently 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. Colourfull 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.
Finally we will visit the vibrant city of Galway. Discover brightly colored pubs playing live music, and cafes with front row seats to street performers. Another possibility is to take a brisk walk along the beach and look upon flamboyant art from exhibitions around the world.
While on tour our friendly and experienced guides will keep you company on your travels and provide you with entertaining and informative commentary.
In Conclusion take a look at our itinerary for a more detailed look at our majestic Cliffs of Moher tour.

“Cliffs of moher tour!”
IWe went to Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Doolin and Galway. It was incredible. Our driver Mac was delightful, he sang limericks and was a very knowledgeable guide. It was my favorite part of our entire trip to Dublin. I highly recommend!
“Cliffs of Moher tour”
Absolutely spectacular! Our driver was Owen and he did such a great job with being a guide and entertaining our group for the 14 hour adventure. I was in Dublin for 5 days and this was my favorite day. I was able to see the country side of Ireland and you definitely get your moneys worth. You go on a scenic way to the Cliffs where you are constantly surrounded by postcard backdrops. The Atlantic Ocean highway was a great view on the way to Galway while listening to traditional Irish music and finally ending the trip with an Irish movie as we drove home was the icing on top! Great job, Irish Tours!

A wonderful outing with Irish Day Tours!
Dear Irish Day Tours
I took a tour on 8th August 2017 to the Cliffs of Moher with Jennifer as my guide and Charlie helming the bus.
Charlie was very skilfull and patient when steering the big bus through the narrow bus lanes with the occasional cars coming in the opposite direction. As a tourist, I cannot ask for more when our safety is put at the first place. Thank you Charlie!
Jennifer did marvelous as she took a group of 40plus of us - with clear instructions and good time management. She's good fun too when she offered to take jump shots at The Burren. During the bus journey, Jennifer also shared some of the sights in Ireland which are interesting. My personal note to Jennifer : I did made it to Newgrange in the end and the visit was so touching! Thank you for sharing about Newgrange and the transport information you put together - you made my last day in Dublin so special because the road did rise to meet me. Ireland will now have a special place in my heart and you have alot of credit for that!
Wishing all at Irish Day Tours good health and prosperity! Continue the good work that you are doing!
We had such a great trip to the Cliffs of Moher! Our guide was David and he was excellent! We were lucky to get on a smaller bus of about 30 people which really gave us a more personal experience. David was knowledgeable, personal & very funny! I highly recommend booking your day tour with Extreme Ireland Day Tours. Next time we come to Ireland we will for sure book another tour with them.
