Ireland | Cliffs of Moher Tour


If you've read my previous blog post, you would know that my best friend and I travelled to Dublin for a week at the end of last month. However, we did leave Dublin on one day and booked a tour to the Cliffs of Moher.

We found many different options for a tour to the cliffs, but we decided to choose the Paddywagon tours as we thought they offered the best price and the best itinerary (and it was a great choice!) There were three different pick up spots that you could choose, and one of them was just round the corner from our hotel. The bus left at about 8am and we had about a 2 hour drive until our next stop.

The views from the bus were incredibly beautiful, and we were so lucky because it was a really nice sunny day.. which isn't that common in Ireland! We saw many amazing places such as the Dunguaire Castle, Corcomroe Abbey, and also the 'mini cliffs'. We then stopped for lunch in Doolin where they offered some amazing food, and finally headed off to the Cliffs of Moher!

The cliffs were nothing short of magical. We walked along the pathway where we had such a beautiful view, and took about a hundred photos until we got a good one because the wind kept getting in the way! It was just nice to stop and appreciate how breathtaking our world can be. (Fun fact: some scenes from Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and Leap Year were filmed at these cliffs!) We then had a hot chocolate at the cafeteria there and also bought a few souvenirs, and at about 5pm we started heading back to Dublin.

This tour does take up a whole day but it is so worth it. If you visit Dublin or anywhere else in Ireland you should definitely look into taking a trip to the Cliffs of Moher if you have the time. I would also highly recommend the Paddywagon tours; our bus driver was so friendly and funny, and their service in general was excellent. It is definitely a unique experience and you don't get the chance to see such incredible views every day!
