Cruise along the Atlantic Ocean admiring breathtaking views Cliffs of Moher. Visit Ireland's top attractions including the Burren, to see Poll na Colm (pronounced Pole na Gollum (the Cave of the Rock Dove), where Gollum from the Lord of the Rings may have gotten his name.
We depart Dublin at 7 am and arrive in Liscannor. Then, we travel to the quaint town of Doolin - where you'll have plenty of time to grab some refreshments before boarding the boat for an incredible tour. This stunning cruise is an unmissable part of your trip to Ireland and positions you with the best views of the Cliffs of Moher from sea level. They are made up of various types of perpendicular or overhanging rocks including sandstone, siltstone, and shale.
These cliffs have been broken into the most fantastic forms and eroded into hundreds of caves by the relentless pounding of the Atlantic waves.
After the boat tour, we depart from Doolin harbor and make our way to Doolin Cave for the 2 pm tour. You'll never see anything else like it....
Doolin Cave is home to the Great Stalactite. At 7.3 meters (23feet) it is the longest free-hanging stalactite in the Northern Hemisphere. The Great Stalactite, suspended from the ceiling like a chandelier, is truly astounding. Grab your helmet as we extend your adventure from sea to underground, retracing the route that Brian Varley and J.M. Dickenson took to reach the main chamber of the cave.
After the caves, we make our way of the Burren. We can admire the landscape of bedrock incorporating a vast cracked pavement of glacial-era limestone, with cliffs and caves, fossils, rock formations, and archaeological sites. After the Burren, we make our way to Galway City. The city’s hub is 18th-century Eyre Square, a popular meeting spot surrounded by shops, traditional pubs, stone-clad cafes, boutiques and art galleries found within winding lanes and medieval city walls.
