We had a great trip to the Cliffs! Even with the wind and rain, we were lucky enough to get a good view. We took some nice stops along the way, including a castle, a burial site and lunch in Doolin. Gary, our tour guide, was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Would recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing the cliffs. Worth the money!!

Guide was an amazing storyteller
Mollie_F, Sept 2023
Tommy, our guide, is a brilliant story teller. We had pretty bad weather (I don’t care about the wind and rain, but it was too misty to see much at the Cliffs) but Tommy’s history and commentary throughout the drive made up for it!
Irish landscape beauty
Robert_V, Sept 2023
The Burren, the coastal drive, the lunch at McGann’s and the wee Irish mist at the Cliff’s along with our informative and entertaining driver Dave at Galway tours. It was a memorable day.
Fun day
Karen_W, Sept 2023
The rocks and the water crashing against them. Gary pointed out many attractions along the way. Gary drove the bus safely, told stories and kept us engaged and entertained. He did an excellent job. Rate him a 10

Great Day Trip to Cliffs of Moher
Sandra_R, Sept 2023
Our driver, Gary, made this tour amazing. We truly learned a lot about Irish culture and history as well as information about the sites along the way. Gary has a wonderful sense of humour, ran a tight schedule and answered any of our questions. What a great day we had! Recommend to one and all.

Amazing place- Viator page is confusing information
DANIELA_B, Sept 2023
Be careful to check your trip goes from Dublin and not from Galway if you are in Dublin. The page is confusing. Unforgettable views and landscape not to be missed
Cliffs of Mohr
johanna_b, Sept 2023
Gary the bus driver was great, entertaining and made me feel safe. Our only issue was we could not get into the Dunlieve Castle.
Spectacular views of the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren plateau
Roger_G, Sept 2023
Pick-up in Galway was well organized. Our tour guide was welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. The coach was comfortable and the drive was enjoyable, with wonderful views of the coast and the Burren landscape. The Cliffs of Moher are spectacular! The visit to the Poulnabrone Dolmen was also well worth the time. By contrast, the visit to Dunguaire castle was a waste of time - just a visit to the castle gift shop! The time would have been better spent at the Cliffs. Lunch was OK. Viator sent an email with an offer of 25 Euros off our first tour booking. However, this offer never appeared during the payment process and we paid the full price for the tour. Attempts to contact the company about this at their "Help Center" went nowhere.
Great day at Cliffs of Moher
Michelle_R, Sept 2023
Our driver & tour guide Gary was fantastic, witty, informative & caring. We were blessed with great weather & the main attraction Cliffs of Moher was stunning. We enjoyed the stops although it would have been nice to have lunch options other than just the pub.
Stunning bus trip
Anne_M, Sept 2023
What a fun trip with Gary our driver. He was so knowledgeable about everything along the way. So even though it was foggy at the cliffs he stories made the day. I learned a lot Thanks Gary (even though you blew up my water)
I enjoyed the side trips,...
Wayne_C, Sept 2023
I enjoyed the side trips, and of course the cliffs themselves. The driver was skilled and informative. Unfortunately I was at the back of the bus and with the noise of the engine it was difficult to hear everything that was being said.
Trip to be Remembered

A great tour of the Cliffs of Moher!
Paul_M, Sept 2023
Tommie, our driver & guide was outstanding. He did a wonderful job explaining Irish history and proving background for all the stops we made. We were very fortunate to have him as our guide/driver.

I am sure you have every possible view of the Horcrux cave by now, so here are 2 of my favorite pictures from the trip. Our guide Gary was wonderful. Clear and full of enthusiasm, he could write a book sharing the wide range of Irish history, customs and society. Never a dull moment! Thank you, Gary. - Michael and Mika Stetson
Cliffs of Mohr experience
George_M, Aug 2023
There was so many. Gary was a excellent tour guide. The cliffs of Mohr was fabulous and the Atlantic ride home on the bus was phenomenal.
A Good Time
Jacob_L, Aug 2023
Our tour guide was Gary, he was great at showing us interesting points and information about them. The Cliffs were a great sight to see and the weather was good.
Fantastic tour!
Andrea_I, Aug 2023
Fabulous day! We saw not only the Cliffs of Moher (out in full sunshine) but also the Burren, the gorgeous Irish countryside, many thatched roof houses, medieval castles, prehistoric tombs, and a return trip partially along the Wild Atlantic Way. The weather was great and our guide, Gary, could not have been better!
