Don’t use Viator!

Even though we had received our tickets the day before when we showed up they didn’t have us listed. The bus didn’t have room and we didn’t get to go. Nine other people had the same thing happen! I’ve emailed them for a refund and haven’t heard anything. Don’t use Viator!

Though we did not get to do the boat tour due to a mechanical issue on 9/9 we were offered to go to Galway instead which was outstanding! Plenty of time to explore and take in the stunning sites. Great tour and wonderful driver! Highly recommend!

Great Day Trip from Dublin
ANTHONY_D

This was a pretty good excursion. The only thing that takes away from it is no fault of the tour company. You will be spending more time on a bus than you will be at all of your stops combined. The sheep dog trials were entertaining and worth the stop. With that said, the cliffs are amazing!! The boat ride offered another spectacular view of the cliffs. Again, no fault of the tour company but the ferry’s were overbooked and behind schedule that day which cost us ½ of our time that was supposed to be spent walking the top of the cliffs which was AWESOME! Wish we had more time there. My only other comment was that the description of the tour mentioned an hour of free time for lunch which did not happen. We had to order ahead of time from a preset menu of just a few items and dine together at a restaurant that was already picked out for us. For anyone curious....There were no bathrooms on the bus.

Terrible customer service provided by Irish Day Tours
Janakkumar_M
, Nov 2019
The tour package included the boat ride. I was very casually notified by the driver upon boarding the bus on the morning of the 30th October 2019 that the boat ride has been closed for the season. In compensation we were told that the tour company has arranged a visit to the caves. This is no compensation! The visit to the caves was not worth seeing. My wife and I flew to Ireland specifically to see the Cliffs of Moher for the full experience. We are absolutely disappointed that the cancellation of the boat ride was not even communicated to us timeously, which was meant to be the highlight of our trip. Upon initiating a conversation with Jonathan Wallace (Customer Experience Manager), he maintains no fault from the tour company. Firstly, why is a package like this offered by Irish Tours if one is not compensated for the cancelled boat trip as it is clear from correspondence with Jonathan Wallacel that these decisions are made by the captain of the boat and not the tour company. This should be stated on the website that for this particular package there is a possibility that the boast cruise could be cancelled and that this will be substituted for the trip to the caves. This would impact on the decision whether to go for this package or not. It should not be left to assumption that one would get to experience exactly what one pays for. A part refund was very abruptly denied by Irish Tours! My advise to tourists...….do not book your tours with IRISH DAY TOURS!
icon Response from Host , Nov 2019
Hi m0rarj, Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately if the boat cruise is cancelled, this decision is made by the company who run the cruise at Cliffs Of Moher. This is not the decision of Irish Day Tours. If there is a cancellation, our drivers find out the morning of the tour from the captain. You must also understand that in October off the west coast of Ireland, sea conditions may be unsafe for a boat cruise. Waves can potentially be extremely dangerous or the boat itself may be pushed towards the cliffs. There is a chance of a cancellation. Customer safety is a priority. The Ailwee Caves are a top attraction, and are used in our winter schedule (Nov-March). During April to October, the caves are used as an alternative should the boat cruise be cancelled. The tour still includes a 5000yr old tomb visit, Doolin, The Burren, Cliffs Of Moher cliff walks in a 12 hour schedule. I am sorry that on this occasion - October 30th - the cruise was cancelled. However, sea forecasts and the Captain's final decision are beyond our control. Thank you,

I liked the boatstour and the sheep dog demonstration. The tourbus was too cold. The driver could not switch the heating on.

Cliffs of Moher

Barry is a great and informative guide, had a wonderful time learning more about the areas that we visited. Even though we had trouble finding Molly Malone at first, we were able to catch up with the rest of the group. The weather caused us to miss the boat tour part of our trip but we were refunded for it. We got completely soaked at the top of the cliffs but it was amazing! Would definitely go again.

Couldn't get on the cruise

Well I was looking forward for the scenery . Gerard was very curtious but no matter how many times I requested him to crank up the mic volume he didn't so couldn't hear much of what he have had to say over the noise of the bus. Not enough time to enjoy the cliffs Our cruise got canceled due to high gusts but no refund offered . I'd rather go to a moher only visit rather than waste the time traveling the country side or just rent a car

After two days in the capital we enjoyed a break in the western part of Ireland. The tour to the Cliffs of Moher was impressive and well worth every cent. We loved to listen to the comments if our very positive guide and felt safe during the ride.

Fantastic

We were on July 10th on this fantastic trip. Our guide and guide Steve was incredible. For 13 hours, he told us about Ireland. He was extremely polite and correct. We had four breaks in which we could have a meal, a cup of coffee and a rest from the road. The bus was new, air-conditioned. I strongly recommend this excursion because it corresponds to 100% of what was announced in the offer. Boating around the rocks and then seeing them on land is indescribable. Thank you Steve for the wonderful day!

A rough and beautiful ride
JEANNE_B

Our driver was fantastic. The history and stories made the drive seem much shorter! There is so much beauty and history and story to absorb. Walking where the ancients once walked is soul stirring. The Atlantic gave us a taste of her power on the boat ride which prevented any up close views of the cliffs and wildlife, but it was incredible still. Walking the cliffs after a very lively guided tour was breathtaking (literally, as the winds were 20+mph!) Would LOVE to do it again!

Trip was perfect! The day started out on time. The first stop at the sheep ranch was very educational from the old encampment to the sheep herding dog demonstration. Next stop the cliffs, first stop there was the bottom tour. Ocean was calm and sunny. Then to the top. Perfect day sunny and no strong wind. Trip home was fast.

Jim was our tour guide and he was an absolute gem. He told us little facts all along the way and did his best to entertain and keep the tour on time. It was extremely foggy the day we went and we got magnificent views from the cruise even though it was a bit foggy from the cliff top. To truly get a sense of how majestic the cliffs are I’d recommend the cruise. It is a long day but they do plenty of pit stops for food and bathroom breaks.

Great tour, except for the ride
David_W

This was a terrific tour but you should be aware that it involves sitting on the tour bus for 3+ hours each way to get there and then get back to Dublin. The cliffs are wonderful, the boat ride is pretty choppy (don’t do it if you have any motion sickness) but well worth it. Our tour guide, Rob, was very good and entertaining. He even sang us a couple of Irish ditties. We really enjoyed the tour but didn’t enjoy sitting on the bus to get there and back. The cliffs are on the western side of Ireland and getting there isn’t half the fun. I don’t want to discourage anyone from this tour but you really should be aware of the time commitment of doing nothing. We also stopped for lunch at a fish & chips restaurant where the food was mediocre at best. We’ve had better fish & chips at C. B. Potts in Denver.

The tour was comfortable, and interesting. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate. The seas were too rough, so we couldn't go on the boat.

We had an amazing journey to the Cliffs of Moher. Our tour guide, Sandra was very resourceful and helpful. She told us many fun facts about Ireland. We had a small group in the coach bus so the ride and throughout the day was quite enjoyable.

This was a fabulous tour. The weather...

This was a fabulous tour. The weather cooperated but the sea was quite rough during the cruise. Our driver James took care of little details to make us feel comfortable, however, the bus that drove us to the venue did not have any capability of getting the cell phones charged. On asking, James told me that the newer buses carry an usb on the back of the seat but not the one we were on. No biggie but just want to point it out. I am giving a 4.

Magnifique paysage mais l excursion en mer était un supplice

Nous n avons rien vu hélas de l excursion en mer car tout le monde était malade dans le bateau. Ppibt de vue timing on est resté seulement 40 min ai dessis des Falaises. Pour manger le Pub était complet on a du attendre pour commander et on avait même pas fini de manger qu on a du repartir. Ce n est pas la première fois qu on fait se type d excursion mais c était la moins agréable

Très bon déroulement. Très bon chauffeur aux blagues subtiles, sauf qu'il ne parlait pas français. Les chien n'obéissent pas toujours à leur maître et quand les vagues sont trop immenses, c'est mieux de ne pas faire partir le bateau. J'ai du m'occuper de 4 personnes malades. Alors attention! C'est très bien, mais pas HAUTE GAMME. Seules les falaises sont à couper le souffle!!!
