Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way boasts some of the most spectacular scenery and remote locations in all of Europe. One of the most thought-provoking landscapes which Ireland has to offer is the unique geology of the barren stony plateau of the Burren, which you’ll experience close-up before heading to the seaside village of Doolin, on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Here you’ll board a ferry to Inisheer - the smallest and most spectacular of the Aran Islands. The island is home to a picturesque smattering of churches, castles, lighthouses, shipwrecks, wild beaches, pubs, and restaurants. You can hire a pony and trap, a bicycle, or explore the backroads of the island at leisure on foot.
On the return ferry ride, cruise at the base of the towering 214 meter-high Cliffs of Moher and be amazed at the sheer scale and grandeur of their 8k length. After a hearty Irish lunch in Doolin, the next stop features a trip to the top of the cliffs where you’ll get entry to the modern, eco-friendly visitor center. From the top, hold your breath and admire a view unparalleled in beauty around the world. Finally, taking the Wild Atlantic Way coast road towards Galway city, take a short stop at the Cliffs of Moher’s siblings, the Baby Cliffs, and a enjoy a peaceful walk in the lunaresque landscape of the Burren. Return time to Galway is approximately 7:30 pm.
