The Cliffs

Liscannor, Munster, Ireland
The Cliffs of Moher (more) are one of the few things that Rick Steves gives 3 stars in his book. Although he doesn't know everything, he was right about this, and they were spectacular. We headed in that direction after the conference sessions were done, and luckily, they are just over an hour from Limerick. According to Wikipedia,  They rise 120 metres (390 ft) above the Atlantic Ocean at Hag's Head, and reach their maximum height of 214 metres (702 ft) just north of O'Brien's Tower, eight kilometres to the north.[3] The cliffs receive almost one million visitors a year.[3]

  We were very lucky to have seen them on a clear day, but part of the time the rain and clouds did move in . On the way back, we stopped in Bunratty to take pictures of its castle. The inside was closed, but we could still take pics of the outside.  

Because it is our last night in Limerick, we decided to have a nice dinner at Marco Polo's and hit Nancy Blake's for a few drinks. It was very traditionally Irish and felt cozy. Still loving the Guinness. It really does not travel well, and that's why it tastes so good here. I actually enjoy it. Or maybe I'm getting older and can appreciate it? Nah...I'll go with the first idea.  

Tomorrow we head to Edinburgh, but not before doing a few more things in Limerick. It should be a fun day. Loving it here so far! 

Thanks for reading!

One of our band's favorite tunes is Cliffs of Moher, it is really lovely to see photos and hear that they were even better in person! I love vicariously adventuring through you.


Glad to hear this, Leah! They were pretty amazing. Thanks for following along!

The Cliffs of Moher are beautiful and you have some absolutely gorgeous photos here. On my last trip, we visited Slieve League in the north which is virtually untouched, not touristy and would have been difficult to get to without our driver. Highly recommended!
