Booking was a breeze by email, planning perfectly arranged. Because our hotel was rurally located with a mowed area, Chris Shiel was able to pick us up 100 yards from the door, probably not likely very often! Although the weather was completely uncooperative, Chris worked to give the photographers the best possible experience. Chris's flying was so professional and safe, I was completely relaxed throughout the flight. One of the photographers was a novice helicopterer, but even he was just fine throughout.
This is not a trip for the budget minded, but it is surely worth it for someone on a 'once in a lifetime' or splurge. We fully enjoyed this cloudy journey down the coastline with as many photo ops as Chris could find us. He even found us a place to land for a picnic that the hotel had prepared.
Do take sunglasses, hat, perhaps a lightweight fleece, and a waterproof. Definitely bring your camera or photophone. Depending on your needs, Chris or other pilot will take you on a multi day golf tour, scenic tour or all day tour, as he did for us. Happy to recommend. Looking forward to doing this again

We did a helicopter ride over the cliffs of Moher from Spanish point. The trip took about 20 minutes and despite being a wet day we were close enough to the cliffs to get a really good view. I would highly recommend this as a great way to see the cliffs.

Wow! What a Beautiful adventure and well worth the money. We went to Ireland with a couple friends for my husbands 50th birthday. For his present, we booked this helicopter tour as he has never been on one. None of us were disappointed! Liam was an exceptional pilot! He was fun and informative. He seemed to truly love his job. We sure lucked out with him. The heliport was a little difficult to find but he had no problems coming out to meet us on the main road to lead the way. The helicopter was clean and well maintained. I think this one hour tour was the highlight of our Ireland adventure.

We took Executive Helicopters from Dromoland Castle over the Cliffs of Moher and out to the Aran islands. Toured the island and took a return right back to the castle. This was a great way to do a trip that would normally take 2 days to do.

Only downside was that we would have liked to be closer to the cliffs themselves....
