The Cliffs of Moher have been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. They are one of Ireland’s most visited attractions. They are spread across miles and it is such a breathtaking view. The beauty of the Cliffs of Moher is that they offer an experience of a lifetime of Ireland’s incredible west coast. I decided to celebrate my 28th birthday in Ireland. I went on my first solo travel adventure and I spent my first ever birthday alone. I wasn’t technically alone since I decided to book a wild rovers day tour to the Cliffs of Moher, but more or less I celebrated with me, myself, and I. I loved my tour with Wild Rover Tours and if you are looking for an adventure for just one day to another side of the country I highly recommend them. They are also great for solo travellers.

Pictures really aren’t good enough. Go spend a day to see the Cliffs of Moher in person while you are in Dublin. Wild Rover got me there without any issues and for a very reasonable price seeing as it was an entire day trip and took me across the country and back. Honestly, the views of the cliffs are once in a lifetime and if you have the opportunity to go, then go! You will not forget this experience. My tour guide was hilarious and kept the entire bus entertained throughout the 3-hour journey to the cliffs. Once we got to the cliffs we were told we had 2 hours to explore and get back on the bus so that we could make our way to Galway. I walked up and down the cliffs for the entire 2 hours, it was so mesmerizing that I couldn’t stop walking and gazing into the deep blue Atlantic Ocean. I recommend wearing trainers or walking shoes because there are muddy parts and it is slippery. I also recommend wearing a windbreaker. It is extremely windy up there.

This tour was great because you get to escape the hustle and bustle of Dublin and see that rugged coastal scenery of the Cliffs of Moher and Galway City. After spending 2 hours at the cliffs we then hopped back onto the bus and drove alone the stunning Irish countryside and coast. We traveled along the Wild Atlantic Way and down to Galway. Once in Galway, we were given the option of exploring or taking a short guided tour. After the walking tour, I popped into a pub grabbed a pint and a bit to eat and did a bit of people watching before getting back on the bus to Dublin. The tour lasted from 7am until 8pm and picked and dropped you off from Dublin. It was amazing and I got to see so much in such a short amount of time. If you would like to explore more of Ireland I highly recommend their tours!
