Cliffs of Moher Day Trip from Dublin

1,584 reviews
Making the journey from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher can be quite the challenge without shelling out the cash to rent a car. This guided tour makes it easy to affordably travel to the cliffs, as well as other hot spots in Country Clare, including Doolin, Burren National Park, and Galway. Plus, this experience comes with round-trip transport in a comfortable coach and your admission ticket to the main attraction.

Brilliant way to end your Easter Rising tour, as Kilmainham Gaol is the place where Conolly and others were executed. Museum/Jail is located in center city north-west side, the best way of getting there from city centre is by using a tram - red luas line, direction from Abbey street / Jervis towards Tallaght. Tour lasts between 45 mins and 1 hour and it's telling sad, brave and heartbreaking story in regards to Easter Rising. I will highly recommend to book tickets online, because attraction is very popular and all the times fully booked, so you won't be dissapointed if you just walk in and they refuse you, because all the tours for a day are being sold out. For a longer stay 7+ days this is a must see spot.

booked our tickets one month in advance. the guards at the entrance door were friendly and welcoming - even during these strange covid times. the tour started on time and was rich of details and anecdotes, but somewhat lacking in empathy and human connection, more so when telling about gruesome and sad events such as the ones that took place in kilmainham... maybe it’s just the vibe of the place compared to the “tourist attraction” pretences that created some sort of dystopic effect. worth experiencing anyway.
