This day trip combines the best of both worlds with a visit to the Aran Islands, a boat trip below the Cliffs of Moher and a visit to the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre. The tour departs from Galway by bus, with over 30 convenient hotel, hostel and B&B Pick-Up Points. (See Below Table)

This is one of our most popular day-trips, where you can visit Inis Oirr and also cruise under the Cliffs of Moher and visit the Centre in the same day. There are many attractions on Inis Oirr – ancient castles, one of Ireland’s most beautiful beaches, a modern playground and several pubs and cafes. Take a pony and trap, hire a bicycle or walk the uncrowded tiny roads.

The return cruise via the Cliffs of Moher is a spectacular journey below these world famous cliffs which tower over 700ft above the sea.
