Cliffs of Moher Premium Tour
I booked this tour because I have done three other tours in past visits with this company and have enjoyed them. Although we rented a car this visit, we wanted to give my dad a break from driving and knew parking can be a premium at the Cliffs. We were scheduled for this tour earlier in the week and my sister suddenly came down ill during the night prior to the scheduled bus departure of 7 am. I tried calling the number, but at 5-6 a.m. there was nobody on the line. I walked with my mom down to the meeting point and staff could not have been more helpful and let us reschedule the visit for two days later. We were not expecting this sort of flexibility and had been prepared to have my mom and I go on the trip and rebook for my sister and dad later in the week. We were very glad they let us reschedule so we could share this experience together.
Our tour guide was Tony, who was entertaining on the bus with Irish stories and songs. He tried his best to make the experience a unique one for us. He took us to a local restaurant in Doolin that had really great fish & chips. The ferry ride was beautiful & we enjoyed our walk along the cliffs.
My friends and I did the premium Day Trip to Cliffs of Moher and had such a memorable experience. James was a very lovely and knowledgeable tour guide. Everything went smoothly and was so well planned. I will definitely use Irish Day Trips on my next trip to Dublin!
