What to Expect
Your Aran Islands and Cliffs of Moher tour starts with a pickup from Galway. Once you board your coach for the day, get ready for an adventure through Ireland.

Travel down the Wild Atlantic Way and through Clarenbridge, Kilcolgan, Ballindereen, Kinvara, and Ballyvaughan as your guide tells you stories about the area’s history.

Arrive in Doolin, and catch a ferry to the Aran Islands. Your ferry stops at Inisheer, one of the smallest Aran Islands. Enjoy some free time exploring, and pop into a local eatery for lunch if you'd like (own expense).

Then on the return ferry to Doolin, take in stunning sights of the Cliff of Moher from the boat. Back on land, follow your guide to the summit of the Cliffs of Moher to catch even more views from the top of the cliffs.

Your tour ends with a drop-off back in Galway.

Great tour and charming driver/guide! Put this on your must-see if you are in Galway. AND.... Bring your raincoat as we all learned because the weather has a mind of its own and the tour continues in rain or shine. Aran island is a gem...More

I really have no idea, you would need to ask them. The weather was on/off rainy, not a downpour. The wind probably made it seem worse for some. It was a just a bit more than "a soft Irish day".
