Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare …

Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare …

Time for a little more of Ireland to share – haven’t done a post for ages on the many places hubby and I visited when we travelled around beautiful Ireland in October last year ..

.. with Liscannor in the far distance on the left … and after parking our car in the car park .. there are paved walkways, pathways and steps ….

…. leading visitors to this most spectacular sight …. the Cliffs of Moher


… which stretch for 8 kilometres and 214 metres above the Atlantic Ocean .. and home to one of Ireland’s largest nesting seabird colony with over 30 000 nesting seabirds …

Unfortunately, it was a bit hazy on the day we were there ..
From the view point (above) the steps and walkway leads to the right to O’Brien’s Tower which was built in 1835 by local landlord, Cornelius O’Brien as a viewing point for visitors …

.. where the Aran Islands can be seen just to the left (dark strip in sea) and the mainland – Co. Galway – in the distance ..


Gentle sounds of a harp and the voice of an angel drifted around the cliffs …

.. and rolling green hills, thick with emerald green grass ..

…. scattered with fat, furry cows ..

… we walked to the left of the main viewing area and came across this notice which seemed to be ignored by some .. including us! But we thought .. why not .. if they can do .. so can we ! but it is dangerous and there is also a notice warning of the deadly drop to the ocean below and how many people slipped and tumbled to their death …


Sooo … cautiously we walked along the cliffs edge .. it was rather scary !

… but we managed to get some awesome photographs ….

This view is from that cliff path looking across to O’Brien’s Tower …

On the way out, we stopped at the Visitor’s Centre which is tucked away in the hillside. It’s huge inside with coffee and tourist shop (where I bought one of Tina’s CD’s) and a virtual reality “Cliff Edge Experience” ..

Spectacular, isn’t it?
