Cliffs of Moher Tour Including Wild Atlantic Way and Galway City from Dublin

3,520 reviews
The Cliffs of Moher are located in Burren on the Wild Atlantic Way, a winding coastal road notoriously difficult to navigate. Spend less time reading maps and more time soaking up the scenery on a stress-free tour from Dublin. An experienced driver navigates the roads safely and a guide transports you to premium viewing spots you may have missed if exploring independently. Plus, this tour includes free time to explore Galway, too.

This is a hard to miss landmark in Dublin, as the river cut the city. Actually a great idea to see the city, and it is FREE, is to just walk around. you will be surprised with the amount of things you will see, but that usually yo would miss if driving.

The River Liffey is a central feature and reference point for everything happening in Dublin. As the Thames does for London, the Liffey divides the city of Dublin into the Northside and the Southside; without wishing to offend any sections of society it is fair to say that the southside is more affluent with the northside being more friendly and congenial. There are numerous beautiful bridges that span The Liffey, with perhaps the Ha'penny bridge and O’Connell Bridge being the most famous. More additions include the Samuel Beckett Bridge (2009) and Rosie Hackett Bridge (2014). The James Joyce Bridge (2003), joins the south quays to Blackhall Place on the north side, and was opened on Bloomsday, June 16, 2003, in in honour of Joyce’s famous novel, Ulysses that was set in Dublin on 16 June 1904. So, as well as accommodating quite relentless vehicular traffic, today the bridges are a source of inspiration for writers, lovers, and countless Dublin poets!. It is always a joy to check out the new buildings emerging in the skyline, while travelling along the Quays, including the barrel-shaped convention centre in the relatively new financial district, and the multicoloured buildings along the Liffey boardwalk. The Custom House is a striking older building on the south bank and St. Pauls Roman Catholic Church towers above the nearby apartment accommodation on the northside. When the weather is good but it is indeed a joy to walk along the river banks, and check out the range of buildings and bridges. A number of artworks are located along the quays include the Famine Memorial Statues (near the International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) and the World Hunger Stone. The river is frequently referenced in popular culture (e.g. by Radiohead group) and is the subject matter (as far as the Professors can surmise, so far) for the impenetrable last major work of Joyce, Finnegan’s Wake.

Great to see the sunshine and the Liffey on a fresh and cold March morning. Boats bobbing up and down. Recommended

I found the River Liffy to be a Great running course each morning. Pretty at night but a little polluted when you see at in the daylight. in fact, it rather smells foul at times, but when it doesn't its great to wake up early and run or walk next to. photos © 2019 nelson wells
