Know More about this tour
From Limerick we would head out to the Burren in English meaning stony ground or rocky place, pass through Corofin and Kilfenora and skirting around Lisdoonvarna all of these towns have stories attached and are famous for their summer festivals. Now arriving to a place known as the mini cliffs which is a warm up before the big event, this is a very beautiful and unusual landscape in the heart of the Burren, it was once a coral reef under a tropical sea off the west coast of Ireland. Back millions of years ago when Ireland was on the equator and 80% of the flowers and fauna of Ireland grow there on the face of the Atlantic looking out at the Aran Islands.
From here we would call into Doolin a little village in the west of Ireland voted in the top 10 places to visit in 2014, its a great spot for lunch or even a pint and they brew their own beer called Dooliner! From here we go to the Cliffs of Moher but also from Doolin if you wish there is a boat trip available to see the cliffs from below with spectacular views of the wild life including puffins. The cliffs are 7 km long and 700 feet high with spectacular views and walk ways all around the area, from the cliffs we can head off again on our merry journey with maybe a stop in Bunratty Castle on the way home. This is a beautiful castle and home to the O Brien family for many years and today a big attraction also and with the blarney woollen mills shop on site its a treasure trove of souvenirs. Again theres always a few stories and laughs along the way.

Our guide was fantastic, warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. It was just my husband and I and our guide for the day. He picked us up at our hotel. The only hitches in the day were that he didn't know it was just the two of us and he had a small bus that would be for a group. Also, he picked us up an hour earlier than the advertised time. We hadn't had breakfast yet, but he told us to go ahead and take advantage of the hotel breakfast and just come to the bus when we were ready. It is a long drive to the cliffs from Cork, but if you're not going to have any other opportunity to see this part of Ireland, it's well worth the money. The stop in Limerick is brief, but it gives you more time to explore the cliffs, which we were on our own for - the guide stayed back at the visitor's center and met us on the bus after our allotted time there. Just being the two of us with the guide gave us a lot of flexibility, the guide's only concern was the weather at the cliffs and getting there before it turned too bad. He knew what he was talking about, storms were coming but we made it in plenty of time before they came and had a great visit there. It's beautiful, breathtaking, and a only bit nerve-wracking. There are no fences or barriers and when you go beyond the paved path, the foot path can come close to the edge in places. But there is an upper path further away from the edge that we stayed on.
Beautiful tour and excellent guide, one of the most awesome places to visit .
