Cliffs of Moher & Burren Day Tour Itinerary
Begin the day with pickup from most accommodations in Adare, Limerick, Shannon and Ennis. Make your first stop of the day at Leamanagh Castle, which is a ruined castle rumoured to be haunted by “Red Mary”.
Afterwards we will take a morning refreshment at Caherconnell Fort. Situated 1km south of the world famous Poulnabrone Dolmen, this unique Irish ring fort offers you the opportunity to visit an exceptionally well preserved example of an ancient Irish stone fort with a modern twist.
Then stop at Poulnabrone Dolmen, an ancient burial site thought to date back to 3800BC. From here, head across the famous Burren region, a unique Limestone landscape that is often compared to a lunar landscape; see breath-taking views across Galway Bay (weather permitting).
Make a stop in Ballyvaughan for lunch, situated between the hills of the Burren and the southern coast of Galway Bay. On a fine day you may view across the bay to Galway city. After lunch, drive with your guide along the Wild Atlantic Way, which will take you across the Blackhead Drive, with its stunning views of Connemara and the Aran Islands. There will be time to stop for a few moments to reflect on this ancient region and admire the flora and scenery.
Next is the highlight of the day tour. The majestic Cliffs of Moher along the spectacular Wild Atlantic Way. Here, take in awesome views from the cliffs, which rise 702 feet from the ocean. There will be ample time for photos. On a fine day you will be able to view the Aran islands and Galway bay from the cliffs.
Here you can take an optional Atlantic Edge Tour (included in price) or simply enjoy a coffee.
On leaving the cliffs, drive by the villages of Liscannor and Lahinch on the return journey to your accommodation in Ennis and Limerick.
