Taking you along Galway Bay, your first stop is at the fishing village of Kinvara to see Dunguaire Castle, before travelling on into The Burren. The Burren is home to 75% of Ireland’s native flora & is the location of numerous ancient monuments many of which we will see including the Gleninsheen Wedge Tomb, the 5,800-year-old Poulnabrone Dolmen and Ballyalban Fairy Fort- home of little men with green hats and orange beards.
Passing through Kilfenora, home to the famous Celtic Crosses (Irish High Crosses) and Lisdoonvarna ,home of the world’s famous matchmaking festival, we make our way to the coastal village of Doolin for our lunch stop before visiting the 200-metre high, 8kms long Cliffs of Moher. Enjoy stunning views over the Atlantic Ocean and the Aran Islands and take your time to soak up the natural beauty of the Cliffs of Moher (minimum 1.5 hour stop- admission included in your ticket).
We return via the Coast Road with views of Galway Bay and the Aran Islands, making a short stop to walk on the lunar-like landscape of the Burren and take in sights such as Leprechaun Head before returning to Galway shortly after 6:00 pm
