Cliffs of Moher
Day 8 (Cliffs of Moher): Next day, the bus drove along the wild Atlantic Ocean by our side, as we cruised down the west coast.We saw beautiful, rocky beaches along the longest coastal touring route in the world. We stopped at the cliffs of Moher, which was a bit of a disappointment because of the weather. We could not actually get to the cliffs, cause of the hurricane-like winds that were there blowing that day. It was a different experience, though, as we made our way from the visitor's center to the bus, holding tight onto each other, so as to not be blown away by the wind!The Blarney house
Take a day off to explore the ancient islands of Inismore, Inisheer & Inismaan - the trio that makes up the spectacular Aran Islands off the coast of Galway. Inismore is the clear winner here and the most visited island. Brilliant location to experience breath-taking beauty, have a brush with ancient history and even learn some Gaelic (if you are planning a longer stay)
Cliffs of Moher Walking Trail
The stunning Cliffs of Moher - iconic value of this monument is highlighted quite simply by the fact that it is the first major 'tourism advertisement' you encounter after stepping off a plane at Dublin Airport! The awe-inspiring beauty of this place is often harangued by the ceaseless hordes of travelers that arrive in coach-loads; however, like every other tourist attraction in Ireland, a little effort & research, will gift you your own private spot to soak in this unbelievable monument. HINT: Look for Hag's Head!
