I did the day trip to the Cliffs of Moher, from Dublin. The guides were informative and nice on the way out. Went out to the family farm for a walk around. Tip- skip the WAY OVERPRICED slice of pie. Then onto the Cliffs of Moher- the highlight of the trip but not enough time spent here. Had to race to get back to the bus and no time to walk to the far end of the cliffs. Then a weird stop at the end in Galway City- not enough time to really do anything before catching a bus at the city terminal back to Dublin. I'm 50/50 on recommending this tour.

This tour was the highlight of my short trip through Dublin. Alec our driver and guide was a wonderful companion who gave us insight on Ireland and the Irish people earnestly and enjoyably. His driving skills are also very impressive. The true highlight of this tour for me was the time spent on the family farm exploring and having a guided walkabout in the historic UNESCO GeoPark which is a set of limestone and flora mountains set atop a historic valley. The Burren is a natural wonder that has to be seen up close to truly appreciate the complexity and wonder of the ecology at play in what appear from afar to be just craggily rocky piles. They are truly a wonder to behold. In the same vein, the Cliffs of Moher are so awesome and unfathomable in their beauty and scale. They are another wonder to behold that have to be seen to believe. Pictures don't do them justice and truthfully I even struggled myself to fathom the scale and beauty of the cliffs with my own eyes. The time spent in Galway was great too with some great shopping and a charming downtown. Ireland is truly a wondrous country and if you only have one opportunity to take a tour from Dublin for a day this is the tour to take.

My friend and I traveled for spring break and went on 3 day trips through the tourism office. I have to say that out of the 3 tours we took, the Cliffs of Moher/Galway/Family Farm was my favorite. Our tour guide Caroline was absolutely amazing. She was so knowledgable, funny, and I couldn't get enough of her jokes and songs. She took the time to get to know everyone on the tour bus and made everyone feel so comfortable. If i ever find myself in Ireland again, I will be sure to ask for any day tour with Caroline. With love from New Jersey! <3

We had an excellent guide explaining everything we saw around us despite the bad weather. The bonus is the visit to the Connolly family farm in The Burren! We had a lovely walk up the "mountains" where we had an amazing view of the Burren and the surrounding villages. Totally recommended! Tip: Don´t take it on a Sunday, everything is dead in Galway! haha

I mean it. MacCoole's the only tour that will not only take you to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway, but also to the 300y old Irish Farm in the Burren Park. As it's quite a packed program, I was a bit chuffed we finally only could stay half an hour in Galway, which is a very charming city. Mac however was a wonderful guide, full of local knowledge and stories, and always with a song on his lips. Very cheerful fellow who looked well after us (and always made sure everyone's gone to the loo, haha) All in all, it was a bit rushed, but a wonderful day out.
