The first adventure of the day begins with a trip to the iconic Cliffs of Moher. One of Ireland’s favourite visitor experiences, the Cliffs of Moher tower over the rugged West Clare coast.  Walk the safe, paved pathways and view the famous Cliffs on Europe’s western frontier and enjoy the spectacular vistas over the Atlantic Ocean and the Aran Islands. Winner of ‘Ireland’s Best Visitor Attraction’ in The Irish Independent’s annual Reader Travel Awards for 2023.


After you visit The Cliffs of Moher, your Guide will accompany you on a scenic coastal drive which will take in Black Head Lighthouse and Poulnabrone Dolmen. Poulnabrone is the oldest dated megalithic monument in Ireland and one of the most photographed dolmens in the country.

This iconic portal tomb is located in a field beside the Corofin-Ballyvaughan road on the high Burren limestone plateau.

It is one of the most famous Irish dolmens and it is the second most visited attraction in the Burren, after the Cliff of Moher. The name Poulnabrone literally means ‘the hole of the sorrows’.



Caherconnell Fort is your next designated stop where a unique experience awaits at The Caherconnell Sheep Dog Demonstrations.

Experience the Premier Sheepdog Demonstrations at Caherconnell, enjoying the combined skills of the farmer and the border collie as they work in the natural habitat of the Burren.



From Caherconnell, continue your journey further into the Burren and visit The Burren Centre in Kilfenora. Explore their fantastic exhibition on Clare’s cultural heritage and audiovisual theatre, narrated by famous environmentalist Éamon de Buitléar. It traces the formation of the Burren 320 million years ago and explains why Alpine, Arctic and Mediterranean plants grow side by side in this limestone world. Hear about how wolves once roamed the forests and how people left their mark on the landscape in the form of the dolmens and burial chambers, which still stand today as stone sentinels to the Burren’s heritage.

Learn about The Kilfenora Céilí Band in the Parlour which features musical instruments and historical artefacts; an unforgettable look at the band’s journey over the past hundred years.

After a busy day of sightseeing, it’s time to return for some rest and relaxation at the Falls Hotel & Spa.

Lying in a North – Westerly direction across Galway Bay, Inis Mór is approximately 12km in length and 3km in width.

Dún Aonghasa is the largest of the prehistoric stone forts of the Aran Islands, off the coast of County Galway. Perched spectacularly on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the fort is about 900 metres from the visitor centre and offers views of up to 75 miles of Irish coastline.
