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?
I don’t think so.
