Over the past decade, Irish Day Tours have refined their tours providing exciting and entertaining day trips from Dublin.
Irish Day Tours launched in 2009 with just one eight-seat vehicle, one tour to the Cliffs of Moher and lots of ambition.
During the ‘Celtic Tiger’ era in our economy, the government at the time invested in the country’s infrastructure, namely a world-class road network connecting all major cities by motorways. Once this was complete it grew the day tour business in Ireland. Instead of five hours from Dublin to Galway, you could now make it in just three hours.

Irish Day Tours invested time in crafting the very best day tours of Ireland and concentrated on delivering the same world-class customer service. In the following years, the company opened two flagship tourist offices in the heart of Dublin city allowing Irish Day Tours direct contact with customers on the ground.
The company then set about expanding their range of tours, with the Cliffs of Moher has now become somewhat of a bucket list destination for those visiting Ireland. Situated along the Wild Atlantic Way, the Cliffs, once believed to be the very edge of the world are a must when visiting. This tour not only visits the Cliffs, but also, there are stops at the iconic Burren National Park, with its lunar landscape of exposed limestone before driving the coast to visit Galway’s bohemian city famed for its street performers, artisan producers, and buskers from around the world.
The Giant’s Causeway/Game of Thrones tours is also another favorite of Irish Day Tour customers. This is an official UNESCO World Heritage site and the tour for 2018 will bring passengers to the Dark Hedges which is seen in the Game of Thrones TV show. Also, another Game of Thrones stop is Dunluce Castle, a wonderful castle ruin once belonged to the MacDonnell clan. The tour will also bring you to Carrick A Rede rope bridge, Ireland’s most famous rope bridge used by fishermen for generations.

Blarney Castle and the world-famous Blarney Stone is another wonderful tour taking customers south to the county of Cork. There are not one but three castles on this tour which also includes Cahir Castle and the Rock of Cashel which started out as the seat of the King of Munster and later became a Cathedral. The story goes that if you kiss the Blarney stone you will be given the ‘gift of the gab’ for many years to come!
