Cliffs of Moher Day Trip from Dublin

1,585 reviews
Making the journey from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher can be quite the challenge without shelling out the cash to rent a car. This guided tour makes it easy to affordably travel to the cliffs, as well as other hot spots in Country Clare, including Doolin, Burren National Park, and Galway. Plus, this experience comes with round-trip transport in a comfortable coach and your admission ticket to the main attraction.

Loved this place - the Old Library is full of history and definitely worth a visit for any book lover. The Book of Kells exhibition space was well presented - I come here each time I visit Dublin.

What a marvel. Took my breath away. There are few things in my life that hits a note and keeps making me want to return. Looking forward to returning once we are able to travel again. The history and detail is simply amazing. Walking in this space with every creak and scent a pause and a thought to a special history period in time.

More then 250.000 books at one place. Centuries of history. Stunning architecture. Fabolous experience for everyone - students, family, couples, Dublin residents, tourists, groups and solos. One of the best experiences you'll have in Dublin. And they have the best souvenir shop in the city - a little bit more expensive, but with unique pieces you'll find nowhere else.

Was very good experience , great piece of history in dublin city centre, truly enjoyed it. The only fault was a large amount of people as well as how dark it was inside, a little bit uncomfortable at times

We loved seeing both of these items, but we especially loved the library. We felt a bit more could have have been done to enhance the experience of seeing the Book of Kells.
