Galway to Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience

The Cliffs of Moher was voted by Irish Independent readers as Ireland’s favourite visitor attraction in 2019 and 2020. You simply cannot travel to Ireland without paying a visit to see for yourself. The Cliffs of Moher have majestically faced the Atlantic for over 350 million years and their beauty is incomparable – it is Ireland’s most visited tourist attraction and when you visit you will understand why. Because of this, making the scenic journey from Galway City to the Cliffs of Moher has the potential to be the highlight of your stay in Ireland.

If you are wondering how to get to the Cliffs of Moher from Galway, there are a number of methods to choose from depending on your needs. There are a number of coach services around Ireland that service Ireland’s major cities with day trips to the cliffs and a day trip from Galway is quite a comfortable affair. The main disadvantage would be that you will often arrive at the cliffs during peak hours with this option.

Another option which offers more flexibility for when to visit the Cliffs, as well as a bit more comfort and opportunity to explore the great things to do around Clare is to take a public bus which gives you the chance to enjoy the beautiful scenic route along the coast. This is one of the most accessible options, taking the direct public bus route from Galway to the cliffs. The Galway-Ennis 350 bus route runs 3 times daily year-round and up to 5 times daily during the Summer.

The distance of the Cliffs of Moher to Limerick is 75km so it is not too far a distance to prevent you from having an enjoyable day trip. This is particularly true if you choose to hire a car which will allow you to enjoy all there is to see and do while at the cliffs. From working your way through all the great resources in the Visitor Centre, to taking in the stunning views and making a stop along your walk to O’ Briens Tower, you can give yourself at least a few hours while you are here to make sure you aren’t missing out on anything. This option also gives you the chance to plan your journey outside of peak hours.

One of Ireland’s most famous sights, the Cliffs of Moher are entirely vertical and the cliff edge is abrupt. On a clear day the views are tremendous, with the Aran Islands etched on the waters of Galway Bay. From the cliff edge you can just hear the booming far below as the waves crash and gnaw at the soft shale and sandstone.

With a due-west exposure, sunset is the best time to visit.
