Cliffs of Moher & The Burren Day Tour

The daily tour to the Cliffs of Moher is a great way to see all the sights of the Burren and enjoy a leisurely stop at Ireland’s most popular tourist attraction - the Cliffs of Moher.
Leaving Galway City daily, your driver-guide will entertain and inform you of the local history and folklore and make plenty of stops along the way. This tour includes photo-stops at Dunguaire Castle in the picturesque village of Kinvara and follows the breathtaking Corkscrew route to the Cliffs of Moher where you can avail of a 2 hour break to visit the 214-metre high, 8kms cliff face, and even visit the state of the art "Atlantic Edge" interpretive centre (entrance not included in tour price).
After lunch the tour moves inland to the limestone region of the Burren and makes another stop at the village of Kilfenora. Kilfenora is famous for its High Crosses located in the 12th century monastery and is the location for the Burren Centre, an exhibition that takes the visitor on a journey through time when this area lay beneath a warm tropical sea (entrance not included in tour price).
From Kilfenora, your driver-guide will take you through the heart of the Burren region, an area home to an extraordinary number of archaeological sites, none more important than the Poulnabrone Dolmen dating back to over 5,800 years!
Having made a short stop at the Dolmen we amble our way slowly back to Galway City and arrive home at approximately 5:30pm.
