Cliffs of Moher

So how many gorgeous cliffs can you have in one country? In Ireland, there are plenty. We had driven in our tiny rental car south to County Clare. Since we were staying in one spot for four days, I knew I could recover from back-seat-drivers’ fatigue. I only made one mistake. I let myself get talked into an 6-hour bus tour to visit all the famous areas around County Clare – the oldest castle in Ireland, the Burren, a few picturesque villages, an excellent cave, and the ultimate Cliffs of Moher. The sights were stupendous. The weather glorious, the people wonderful. The bus ride turned out to be 12 hours long.

But would I have wanted to miss out on the Cliffs of Moher, our last stop?

too beautiful to miss
too beautiful to miss

I don’t think so.

  1. We rented a cottage in the Burren for a week… We could have easily spent two in that one location. So many vistas to sit and contemplate the landscape. Every rock has a history, told in the limestone encrusted fossils. The sky is in constant change from blues to clouds to fog. And, the people bring you back centuries. We even watched a “parade” of the local high school hurlng team marching through town on their way to a rivalry match.
