This was a phenomenal tour. Really laid back but wonderful information from our guide Dave. We would highly recommend this tour. The day we went Dingle was really busy so we weren’t able to have lunch there and instead lunched at the Cliffs of Moher, which was great. We had extra time to stop at a beach too. Additionally the hotel pick up was super smooth and quite helpful because we stayed near Salthill. The hotel pick up driver noticed my husband had a professional camera and suggested we sit in the front seat of the tour bus to get good shots out the windshield. This trip was 11 out of 10 and the perfect way to see the Cliffs if your in Galway for only a few days and don’t rent a car.

This was an incredible trip. The cliffs are breathtaking, and the stops along the way were great as well. Walking through The Burren, seeing the coast, and the Dungaire castle were all memorable. Dave was a stellar host - humor, history, and a heck of a good time!
