Option 1: Full Day Cliff Walk - the Ultimate Cliffs of Moher Shuttle tour ticket for walking enthusiasts. Priced at only €32 and exclusively by Hidden Dublin Tours

After departing Dublin at 7am, we reach the trailhead at Moher Sports Field, Liscannor (where the famous Liscannor stone comes from) at approx 11am where you will begin your walk. Please ensure that you have taken the phone number of the driver before you leave.

From Moher Sports Field follow flagstone markers north, taking the left turn to reach Hags Head (1km).

Hag's Head is the name given to the most southerly point of the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare, Ireland where cliffs form an unusual rock formation that resembles a woman's head looking out to sea. One legend relates how an old hag, Mal of Malbay, fell in love with the Irish hero, Cú Chulainn and chased her would-be suitor across Ireland. Cú Chulainn escaped by hopping across sea stacks as if they were stepping stones. Mal, however, not being so nimble lost her footing and was dashed against the cliff. A tower ruin known as Moher Tower stands at Hag's Head. Until the early 19th century, it was the site of a promontory fort known as Mothar or Moher.



From Hags Head follow flagstone markers along the Clifftop for 5km until you reach O'Brien's Tower which marks the highest point of the Cliffs of Moher. On entering the area of the tower you will see some amazing views. The cliff faces themselves have a lovely green moss growing on them which is beautiful when the sun is shining on it. The tower is open to visitors and there is a short few steps up to the top which gives you 360 degree views of the cliffs and you can look down to the visitor centre from there.



You should have reached here by 1pm at latest. From O’Briens Tower, follow the clifftop path which veers inland to reach farm road. Walk through the narrow passage beside the cattle pen on your left. Travel through this field, keeping the stone wall on your left, until the path takes a sharp left back to the coastline.

Follow the trail into the picturesque village of Doolin (8km / 2.5 hrs).You should have reached here by 3.30pm.



Depart from McGann's Pub Doolin at 4pm SHARP

You will have now spent your day traversing 15km along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, taking advantage of once in a lifetime photo opportunities, and probably making the others on the bus jealous!

Option 2: Cliffs Of Moher Boat Tour and visit to Doolin Cave - Only €59 and exclusively by Hidden Dublin Tours

After departing Dublin at 7am, we reach Doolin harbour at approx 11.30am where you can soak up the atmosphere and grab yourself a coffee before boarding our vessel for the 12pm boat trip. The boat trip will take approx 1 hour.

This stunning cruise is an unmissable part of your trip to Ireland and position you with the best views of the Cliffs of Moher from sea level. They are made up of various types of perpendicular or overhanging rocks including sandstone, siltstone and shale.
These cliffs have been broken into the most fantastic forms, and eroded into hundreds of caves by the relentless pounding of the Atlantic waves.



After the boat tour, we depart from Doolin harbour, and make our way to Doolin Cave for the 2pm Tour. You'll never see anything else like it....

Doolin Cave is home to the Great Stalactite. At 7.3 metres (23feet) it is the longest free-hanging stalactite in the Northern Hemisphere. The Great Stalactite, suspended from the ceiling like a chandelier, is truly astounding. Grab your helmet as we extend your adventure from sea to underground, retracing the route that Brian Varley and J.M. Dickenson took to reach the main chamber of the cave.

In his poem, The Forge. Seamus Heaney wrote: “All I know is a door into the dark” and that is the lot of spelunkers and speleologists the world over.

Oh, and did we mention, your Driver and his father built the very tunnel you went down in today - did you spot his picture on the wall?



After the Cave, we make our way back to McGann's pub where you can Enjoy some home-made soups, light meals, cakes and desserts, as well as a wide selection of hot and cold drinks if you desire in the picturesque village of Doolin before we start our return journey back to Dublin at 4pm sharp.
