O'Neachtain professional tour guides will give you many stops to explore and photograph each area. Also giving you plenty of time at Ireland's most spectacular sea-cliffs, the famous Cliffs of Moher, which are 200m high and are extended for 8km long.

Next we view 12th Century Cistercian Abbey of Corcomroe and then on to Ballyvaughn.

Our next stop is the famous Poulnabrone dolmen, a 5000 year old tomb used by the stone dwellers to bury their dead. Next we view Leamanagh Castle, Kilfenora, Lisdonvarna where the matchmaking festival is held in the month of September and then on to the world famous Cliffs of Moher for our next long break.
