West of Ireland Tour


This full day tour will start at your requested pick-up point in the Sligo / Leitrim region. Your journey will take you through The Burren, County Clare, dating back to 7000 BC which stretches approximately 250 square kilometers (97 square miles) and is covered in limestone pavements. Onwards to the Cliffs of Moher, described as the 8th Wonder of the World and Ireland's most visited tourist attraction. Options also available to visit include The Ailwee Caves, Kilcolgan Castle, Lisdoonvarna, Doolin, Lahinch and Costello Memorial Chapel (supposed to be the smallest consecrated church in the World).

Itinerary

An early start is advisable. We are looking at a minimum of a 10 hour tour.
Starting in Sligo, Kilronan Castle, Carrick on Shannon or Knock Airport we will head southwards through County Galway turning onto the coast road at Kilcolgan with a quick stop at Kilcolgan Castle.
Onwards through The Burren passing The Ailwee Caves, Lisdoonvarna and Doolin which are all optional stops. However, I would recommend continuing to The Cliffs of Moher without stopping and see if there is enough time to stop on the way back if you are interested in visiting any of these places.
There will be many photo opportunities on route which you can avail of. Just ask me.
There are two cafes available at the Cliffs of Moher (the Puffins Nest Cafe and Cliffs View Cafe). Additionally, we can stop anywhere on route if you are feeling a little peckish.
The return trip could have the option of stopping off at award winning gastro pub, The Oarsman, in beautiful riverside town of Carrick on Shannon or other restaurants of your choice.
