Limerick, Cliffs of Moher, Burren and Galway Bay Rail Tour from Dublin
US$138.54
Overview
Ireland’s majestic West Coast offers ancient cities, medieval castles, and some of the country’s most popular natural attractions. On this comprehensive tour from Dublin, you’ll see the major sights in a day—all without the trouble of arranging multiple tickets and forms of transportation. Begin with a train journey to Limerick before boarding a coach to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, and Galway Bay.
What to Expect

Your morning begins at Dublin Heuston Station, where you board a train to Limerick. Order breakfast (own expense) and enjoy the passing lush, green countryside views.

On arrival in Limerick, a local guide leads a walking tour of the ancient city. Learn tidbits about its rich past, Viking heritage, and literary reputation.

Next, board a northbound coach to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park. Discover Ireland’s most complete medieval castle, including historic tapestries and artworks, and then see Folk Park, which offers a glimpse of 20th-century Irish village life.

It isn’t a trip to Ireland without a traditional pub lunch. Wash down classic dishes with a Guinness or cup of tea at Gus O’Connor’s Pub in Doolin (own expense).

The coach then transports you to the rugged Cliffs of Moher. Your journey continues past scenic coastline of the Burren and Galway Bay. Stroll through Galway before boarding a train to Dublin, where dinner awaits (own expense).

There will be adequate time at all the stops. But as you are in a group, and people have varying interest, some will find the stops too brief or too long. Personally, I would have preferred to stay longer at Bunratty... More
