Cliffs of Moher Tour
Day tour to one of Ireland’s top destinations, the Cliffs of Moher & The Burren
Killarney to the Cliffs of Moher via Tralee, Tarbert, Kilrush and Lahinch
We start our Cliffs of Moher Tour by travelling towards Tarbert where we cross the Shannon estuary by ferry. With a bit of luck we might see some dolphins. Arrive in county Clare & travel northwards via Kilrush to Liscannor to the Cliffs of Moher & the Burren. Visit to St. Brigid’s Well en route.
The Cliffs of Moher run for about 9 miles & rise from between 390 ft to 702 ft. They form part of The Burren & Cliffs of Moher Geopark, one of a family of geotourism destinations throughout Europe and members of the European Geoparks network. The cliffs are also a signature point on the official Wild Atlantic Way trail. The visitor centre at the cliffs has interactive media displays covering the geology, history, flora & fauna of the cliffs.
The Burren National Park
Following our visit to the Cliffs of Moher, continue towards Doolin and discover The Burren National Park, which is the smallest of the 6 National Parks in Ireland. Travel the coastal route around ‘Black Head’ with spectacular views onto Galway Bay and The Aran Islands. Visit Poulnabrone Dolmen in the heart of the Burren before making our way towards Ennis, Bunratty and Adare.
Bunratty Castle and Folk Park
Optional visit to Bunratty Castle and Folkpark. Set on 26 acres, the park features over 30 buildings in a ‘living’ village & rural setting. It gives us an idea of what a village in Ireland in the 19th century would have been like. From the houses of the very wealthy to those who had little or nothing.
Stop at the heritage town of Adare with its picturesque thatched cottages and ancient monastic buildings. Adare is renowned as one of Ireland’s prettiest towns.
As this is a private tour, you can choose to adjust it to whatever way you wish. The weather will usually have a say. If it’s a very foggy or rainy day you may wish to spend more time at Bunratty or on a very fine day you may want to spend more time outdoors. You can decide on the day.
