Rising 820 ft above sea level, the cliffs give you an opportunity to take in breathtaking views of Aran Islands and Galway Bay. You will have plenty of time to explore this natural site of beauty, and see many of the 30,000 bird colonies that live here. (ENTRY FEE INCLUDED)

“We experienced Giant’s Causeway with Ronan today and without doubt, it was the best tour we have ever been on. “RoRo” was a phenomenal guide. He is so knowledgable but also funny and quick-witted. Having such an intimate group in the 16 seat van made all the difference, and we will certainly join you again when we return. Can’t say enough about the tour, the company, and Ronan. Cheers!
