traveling by car in Ireland

Can anyone provide any input about traveling to the Cliffs of Moher by car from Shannon. Also can anyone tell me about the Ferry and bout tours of the Cliffs. Im a bit confused on how far the Ferry Travels and if you see the Cliffs. Thanks

Hi Maryann
The Rick Steve's Ireland guidebook covers this area very well. Here is a quote from the 2011 guidebook which we are using as I write this from Dingle
" to get a different perspective of the cliffs, you can cruise along their base.
Cliffs of of Moher cruises makes the one hour voyage past sea stacks and crag-perching birds. Boats depart from the pier in Doolin (same dock as Aran Islands boat, $15, runs daily April-Oct, 3/day, weather permitting, call or go online for sailing schedule and to reserve, tel. 065/707/5949, mobile 087-245-3239,
I highly recommend you get the latest Rick Steve's Ireland guidebook. It has a wealth of great info!
