Tour description provided by Viator

Visit two of Ireland's top natural attractions—the Aran Islands (Inisheer) and the Cliffs of Moher—in one day on this tour from Galway. You'll take in the amazing scenery of two of the Discovery Points on the Wild Atlantic Way, plus enjoy a boat ride beneath the Cliffs of Moher. Other sights include the Burren and villages such as Clarenbridge and Ballyvaughan.
Your day trip starts as you depart Merchants Road, Galway from outside the Kinlay Hostel with your driver-guide, who takes you on a wonderful journey along the Wild Atlantic Way, passing through the villages of Clarenbridge, Kilcolgan, Ballindereen, Kinvara, and Ballyvaughan. From Ballyvaughan, head south along the Clare coastline via the karst landscape of the Burren, passing by Blackhead and Fanore on your way to the fishing village of Doolin, where your ferry awaits to take you to Inisheer, the smallest of the Aran Islands. Once on the island, you have free time to explore and have lunch (own expense) before boarding the return ferry to Doolin. The return ferry cruises beneath the Cliffs of Moher, providing an impressive view of the sheer height of the cliffs. When you reach Doolin, re-board your bus and head to the top of the Cliffs of Moher to enjoy the sea views from the summit. Then make your way back to Galway, passing again through the Burren and by Lisdoonvarna, home to an annual matchmaking festival. Your day trip ends with arrival in Galway.
