Amazing from the beginning to the end
Pilar_P

There are many things to praise! The trip was very interesting; we had a few stops before the Cliffs, so the experience was more than I expected. The guide was very funny, patient, polite and informative, I learnt many new things about Ireland, Irish language, and the different cities we passed through. The Cliffs of Moher were incredible even with the wind and the rain (it was raining when we arrived but it stopped after a few minutes, we were very lucky), and I would like to recommend this trip to those who want to see not just one part of Ireland but the whole country. If I have the chance, I will repeat the experience!

Fun trip to the Cliffs.
Matt_G
, Sep 2021
The driver had a seemingly unlimited supply of interesting regional and otherwise stories. This added to the whole thing.The cliffs were of course interesting, beautiful. Anyone going on this trip should be aware that there is a great deal of walking if you want to get the full experience. This was perfectly fine with me as I do a fair amount of hiking but for someone not so inclined it might be problematic
