1 Day in Ireland - Cliffs of Moher or Giant's Causeway

Hello,

I will be in Ireland mid-May and sadly we only have 1 day in Ireland landing in Dublin. I was looking through 1 day tours and I'd love to see all 7 wonders but unfortunately don't have the time. If you had to chose between Giant's Causeway or Cliffs of Moher, which do you prefer? Thank you!!

Honestly, neither if I really only had one day in Ireland. But in the context of your question I guess I'd go with Giant's Causeway as it can still be viewed in bad weather.

Either one will be 3 + hours from Dublin one-way. Long day!

I figured it was pretty long but I can suck it up if it's the most recommended sight to see. I'm open to any recommendations. Even if sitting at a pub drink and eating.

If I only had one day in Ireland, landing in Dublin, I would spend the day seeing Dublin, not on a bus trip to somewhere else!!

Walking around Dublin...Pubs....Sites. Much better than any form of transportation to and from an attraction in a single day.

Drive up to LaJolla if you want cliffs. Grab a glass of wine in Temecula. Take a boat ride to Catalina. Then to LAX and....

Then spend the day in Dublin. :-)

I agree with prior responses. Why spent most of your only day on a bus?? Do Dublin!!

Haha done all that already! I definitely will take everyone's advice to probably take a free walking tour around Dublin and then eat and drink the city away. That sounds more fun than a bus anyway. Thanks everyone for the response! Just what I needed. =)

There's a hop on, hop off bus to take the strain off walking around Dublin. For me, Kilmainham jail is a must-see and the National museum.
