Just one of our many reviews
Annapia Ahola October 2017
The trip was just perfect! It was great from the moment I sat in the bus. Our driver and guide Phil told us stories and facts during the drive to Doolin and he had such a great sense of humor.
During the ride we saw nice, cozy looking little towns, castles, and the beautiful countryside. When we arrived in Doolin and got to the pier where the cruise started, the views were already breathtaking. It was quite windy and the Atlantic ocean waves can be quite big, so if you know you get easily seasick, get prepared. Soon I was already cycling around Inisheer island. We had a couple of hours time to spend on the island.
I rented a bike and headed off to see the Plassey shipwreck. Ended up spending so much time there admiring the view that I didn't have time to visit the lighthouse or the castle ruins. Did take a walk on the beach, though, and visited a nice little shop were they sell local products and souveniers. Great island. On the way back to Doolin we toured under the Cliffs of Moher and after that we got an hour on top of the cliffs. I absolutely recommend this trip to everyone who wants to experience something spectacular. I'd say it's suitable for people of any age.
Just a couple of tips: Put on some warm clothes, even if it is sunny. The ocean winds can be cold. If you don't want your feet get wet, don't hang around at the back on the lower deck of the boat if the waves are high. If it's raining, wear a rain cape or coat or something. An umbrella is no use. Dress in layers, though. If you go around the island by bike, on a sunny day it might get quite warm. When you get on top of the Cliffs of Moher, take the path to your right North and then the one to the left if you have time. Don't spend too much time at the gift shop, you can buy pretty much the same stuff in Galway or in Dublin even.
Take some snacks with you, a bottle of water, a protein bar and a banana or something. You can get some food on the island and at Cliffs of Moher visitor center, but who wants to spend their time inside when the views are sooo good. This trip is something I'll always remember and will take my friends and family there one day. And a big thanks to Phil!
