Cliffs Of Moher Tour

Definitely, our best selling tour is Cliffs Of Moher Tour. If you are coming over to Dublin, you really want to go and see the cliffs – you probably know them already from Harry Potter or Princess Bride (Cliffs of Insanity, anyone?).

They boldly claim: “The Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with a magical vista that captures the hearts of up to one million visitors every year.” You want to be one of those visitors! Seriously, you do!
