Limerick, Cliffs of Moher, Burren and Galway Bay Rail Tour from Dublin
Ireland’s majestic West Coast offers ancient cities, medieval castles, and some of the country’s most popular natural attractions. On this comprehensive tour from Dublin, you’ll see the major sights in a day—all without the trouble of arranging multiple tickets and forms of transportation. Begin with a train journey to Limerick before boarding a coach to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, and Galway Bay.
What to Expect

Your morning begins at Dublin Heuston Station, where you board a train to Limerick. Order breakfast (own expense) and enjoy the passing lush, green countryside views.

On arrival in Limerick, a local guide leads a walking tour of the ancient city. Learn tidbits about its rich past, Viking heritage, and literary reputation.

Next, board a northbound coach to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park. Discover Ireland’s most complete medieval castle, including historic tapestries and artworks, and then see Folk Park, which offers a glimpse of 20th-century Irish village life.

It isn’t a trip to Ireland without a traditional pub lunch. Wash down classic dishes with a Guinness or cup of tea at Gus O’Connor’s Pub in Doolin (own expense).

The coach then transports you to the rugged Cliffs of Moher. Your journey continues past scenic coastline of the Burren and Galway Bay. Stroll through Galway before boarding a train to Dublin, where dinner awaits (own expense).

Andy was the cutest tour guide

Although we had a rough start this morning due to the train being late, Andy made up for it with his tidbits of knowledge and singing Irish songs. It was a great day and it was a nice tour.More

On my tour in August 2018 there were 11 people in our group. When we transferred from the train to our motor coach I would say it could seat 16-20 people. It was quite comfortable with large windows.

Yes. I didn’t do it, but others in my group did. I believe you can work it out with your tour when you book it.
