This is a great way to get to the cliffs if you don’t want to take on the winding roads yourself. The cliffs are magnificent! This experience is exactly what it says it is—they drive you to the cliffs and that’s about it. Our driver didn’t talk at all during the drive which is okay—just know that you won’t be getting any talking or history from the driver before booking.

About half the people on our bus were feeling motion sick so beware if you are prone to motion sickness! The bus goes up and down on the windy roads. Personally felt very sick from it.

The stunning view of the cliffs was the best part of the tour. Our driver John was knowledgeable, fun, attentive, punctual, and made our experience unforgettable. Ordering lunch ahead made the day run even smoother than expected, and the beautiful stops between the cliffs and back were worth every moment spent. To top it off, I proposed to my fiancée at the cliffs and she fortunately said yes. This experience was nothing less than perfect.

I wanted to see the cliffs without the additional stops that are typical with other tours and without the hassle of coordinating public transportation times. This half-day tour was perfect. We had 2 hours on our own at the cliffs. Note that given the time to walk from the parking lot to the visitors center to use the bathroom, walking to the start of the cliff viewing areas, and then returning to the parking lot, you have less than 2 hours for actually walking the cliff paths. I skipped the visitors center exhibit and the gift shop in order to spend maximum time on the paths. I did take time for lunch in the pleasant cafeteria. Plan accordingly - eat before the noon departure or pack snacks for the bus if you don't want to take time to eat at the cliffs. Lastly, be aware that the roads are narrow, winding, and hilly. Great scenery and our driver was very skilled, but if you are prone to motion sickness, some preventive measure may be a good idea. I overheard the driver tell a passenger that if she felt unwell on the return trip to let him know, and he would pull over for a short stop, so the drivers are aware that this may happen.

To be clear, this is simply a bus ride. There is no narration. The bus driver takes you to the Visitors Center and then two hours later drives you back to Galway. The Cliffs are beautiful to walk along, and the views are beautiful. Expect lots of wind. The visitors center is nice, The bathrooms were clean enough despite the crowds there. It seemed very, very expensive for the ride.

We did the Galway to Cliffs of Moher Half-Day Express trip in August of 2022. Basic service from Galway to the Cliffs. If you are prone to motion sickness, beware, the roads and windy and there is a lot of bus movement.
The Cliffs were a natural wonder. Climbing up to the south view point on a 30+ degree day was a bit of a challenge, but worth the effort.

Had an amazing trip today! This is exactly the kind of tour you need to book if you just want to spend some time at the cliffs of Moher. Our driver Peter gave some extra information on the surroundings during the trip, which made the drive very interesting.

I also want to thank our driver for being so kind when I got carsick today. He stopped the whole bus and made sure I was feeling better before continuing the journey. Thanks Peter!!

This was perfect! I didn’t want a 12 hour tour that also went to a castle or fishing village. I just wanted to go see the cliffs. The bus takes you there and brings you back, exactly like they say. No frills, no extras. I appreciate that there wasn’t a guide talking the entire way there or back. Just a few quiet hours to read a book or watch Netflix on the rides.

The bus driver was very knowledgeable about every place we passed. He even gave us warnings for good photo spots along the way-so we could take photos from the bus too. This is definitely a good tour to see some landscape and to not be bogged down by a travel group.

Trip to Cliffs of Moher was great. The driver provided a narrative on points of interest along the way to the Cliffs. Enjoyed seeing the beautiful countryside of Ireland between Galway to the Cliffs of Moher. A memorable half day trip.

Wonderful trip, quick and enough time to visit. We arrived Galway via cruise ship and had to be back on board by 5:30. Although they could not guarantee us back by then (approximately 5 pm return), they delivered us to the ship (not pick up/drop off point) with plenty of time to spare. They really went above and beyond to make our trip great.
