A Taste of Galway
Galway, a harbour city on Ireland’s west coast, sits where the River Corrib meets the Atlantic Ocean. The city’s hub is 18th-century Eyre Square, a popular meeting spot surrounded by shops and traditional pubs that often offer live Irish folk music. Nearby, stone-clad cafes, boutiques and art galleries line the winding lanes of the Latin Quarter, which retains portions of the medieval city walls. From Galway, you can visit the famous ‘Cliffs of Moher’ where you can see stunning views across the ocean. A perfect getaway, rich in Irish culture and atmosphere, Galway makes the perfect holiday choice for couples and groups alike…

Arran Island and Cliffs of Moher
After breakfast, you will embark on a full day tour of Arran Island and the Cliffs of Moher. Drive south along the Wild Atlantic Way and into the lunar-like Burren region. From there we’ll head to the picturesque fishing village of Doolin where you’ll board the ferry to Inisheer – the smallest and most vibrant of the Aran Islands. After returning to Doolin for lunch, you will embark on the next leg of the tour to The Cliffs of Moher. Stand atop these awe-inspiring, rigid cliffs with edges dropping into the untamed Atlantic Ocean. Stretching 8km (5 miles) along the Atlantic coast of County Clare, The Cliffs of Moher stand 700 feet tall. Once we depart the cliffs we will take the coast road home, following the Wild Atlantic Way before one last stop at the stunning Baby Cliffs in Ballyreen where you can walk atop the Burren.
