Cliffs of Moher Day Trip from Dublin

activities / Sightseeing tours

Tour description provided by Viator

Leave Dublin behind for a day, and travel to County Clare to see the spectacular Cliffs of Moher on Ireland’s west coast. Standing 702 feet (214 meters) high, the cliffs provide dramatic views over the Atlantic Ocean and west coast countryside. Your day trip includes several walks, taking in sites of historical relevance amid stunning Irish scenery in Burren National Park.

Your Cliffs of Moher day trip will head out of Dublin in the early morning, making best use of the quiet roads.

Passing through rural County Dublin, you will see the rolling hills, shimmering lakes and medieval castles that typify the Irish midland countryside. En route, there will be a stop in Limerick, the Mid-West Irish city that began life as a Viking colony and your expert guide will happily regale you with tales about the city's Viking past. Here you will pass the imposing King John's Castle and have the chance to stand beside the infamous Treaty stone, where the historic Treaty of Limerick was signed by the Jacobite Irish in 1691.

On arrival in County Clare, your guide will take you on a leisurely walk (lasting approximately 1.5 hours), over to the Cliffs of Moher, where you can enjoy unlimited photo opportunities. The cliffs are 702 feet (214 meters) high at their highest point and span more than 5 miles (8 km) of the coastline, creating a dramatic backdrop against the Atlantic Ocean. Take in spectacular views of the pretty Aran Islands and the Maum Turk mountains in Connemara to the south.

Continue on to the quaint village of Doolin for lunch in one of its four traditional Irish pub (for an additional cost), before walking it off with a stroll through Burren National Park – a vast limestone region, reminiscent of a lunar landscape, containing rare flowers. On your journey back to Dublin, you will travel via the scenic route on smaller roads overlooking the ocean. There will a brief stop for coffee near Galway Bay before arriving in Dublin in the early evening.
