Our award-winning Cliffs of Moher and Connemara overnight tour lets you take in the breath-taking scenery that the west coast of Ireland has to offer. The Cliffs are a visitor attraction not to be missed. You also get to take in the sights of the Burren as well as explore Connemara and Cong. Our Cliffs of Moher and Connemara overnight tour combines some of the most spectacular scenery with even more Irish heritage.
With its remote location and rugged coastlines, Connemara is the epitome of natural beauty. It’s small wonder then that it welcomes a steady stream of visitors who want to explore its diverse landscape and meet its communities. Whether you’re keen on sitting in a pub with a pint of Guinness or enjoying Killary Fjord, a Coonemara visit will be glorious.
Meanwhile, at Cliffs of Moher, you’ll have all the time you need to take in the majesty, the grandeur of Ireland’s most favourite tourist attraction.

Cliffs of Moher & The Burren
This part of our Cliffs of Moher and Connemara overnight tour takes in the Burren which is an area of about 500 square kilometres of landscape that is home to some of the most internationally famous flora. The scenery here is magnificent too.
The cliffs of Moher themselves are difficult to describe and you really have to see them to appreciate the stunning beauty. The cliffs rise from Hag’s Head in the South and reach a height of over 700 feet. On a clear day, the view is spectacular and you can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, and the hills and valleys of Connemara. The cliffs of Moher are home to many species of birds too including razorbills, guillemots, fulmars, gannets, kittiwakes, ravens, puffins, and more.
Connemara & Cong
The Connemara tour aspect takes you into the area known as The Gaeltacht. This is where Irish is still the spoken language and many traditions are preserved here. Explore hidden Ireland and enjoy a visit to a 14th century monastery before entering Cong Village. In Cong village, you’ll have time to explore Cong Woods and see Ashford Castle. This was the location for the 1950’s movie “The Quiet Man”. You can also enjoy a coffee on the edge of Lough Corrib. You get to see the beauty of all the valleys of Connemara as well as Killary Fjord and take some stunning photographs.
