You will be truly mesmerized by the sheer cliff face a brilliant photo opportunity  After your boat trip and we are back on dry land we enter the deep caves of  Doolin.  - Equip yourself for walking/outdoors. Weather conditions can be quick to change & inhospitable all year round. - Make sure your driver has the names and phone numbers of everyone in your group. In an Emergency: call 999 or 101
:  We depart Dublin at 7am, make a quick photo stop at St.Brigid’s Well - said to visited by a fish (a symbol of Christianity that predates the cross). Passing down a cleft in the rock is a little like passing through time to a more ancient faith, to a purity of prayerful expression. This vale of solace is a far cry from the exposure of the cliffs we are making our way towards!We reach Doolin harbour at approx 11.30am where you can soak up the atmosphere and grab yourself a coffee before boarding our vessel for the 12pm boat trip. The boat trip will take approx 1 hour.This stunning cruise is an unmissable part of your trip to Ireland and position you with the best views of the Cliffs of Moher from sea level. They are made up of various types of perpendicular or overhanging rocks including sandstone, siltstone and shale. These cliffs have been broken into the most fantastic forms, and eroded into hundreds of caves by the relentless pounding of the Atlantic waves.Lunch stop at McGann's pub where you can Enjoy some home-made soups, light meals, cakes and desserts, as well as a wide selection of hot and cold drinks if you desire in the picturesque village of DoolinWe make our way to Doolin Cave for the 2pm Tour. You'll never see anything else like it....Doolin Cave is home to the Great Stalactite. At 7.3 metres (23feet) it is the longest free-hanging stalactite in the Northern Hemisphere. The Great Stalactite, suspended from the ceiling like a chandelier, is truly astounding. Grab your helmet as we extend your adventure from sea to underground, retracing the route that Brian Varley and J.M. Dickenson took to reach the main chamber of the cave.After the Cave, we make our way to The Burren - a region of County Clare in the southwest of Ireland. It’s a karst landscape of bedrock incorporating a vast cracked pavement of glacial-era limestone, with cliffs and caves, fossils, rock formations and archaeological sites. After the Burren, we make our way to Galway City. The city’s hub is 18th-century Eyre Square, a popular meeting spot surrounded by shops, traditional pubs, stone-clad cafes, boutiques and art galleries within winding lanes and medieval city walls.
