The Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and Galway

Another beautiful day in Ireland and we are off for the Cliffs of Moher.

We arrived early at the Cliffs of Moher.
We were able to walk about and enjoy the area and visitor center before the crowds arrived.

It was very windy so near the coast.
Another fun day touring on the motor coach.

The views were spectacular.

The 700 foot high Cliffs are home to several species of birds.

Looking out on the beautiful Atlantic.

Next we were off to an area called the Burren.

Limestone covers this area of coastline. 

The rugged desolate landscape is a beautiful place to explore.

Wild flowers tucked in the crevices.

Stone fences were everywhere.

Rock climbers were enjoying this cliff.

My view from the motor coach.

Our tour guide, Dave, is on the left and you can see our driver, Kasbar,  in the rear view mirror.

We made a lunch stop in Galway and then returned to Limerick for the night.

One more day in Ireland. I hope you will join me drinking Irish Whiskey in Tullamore and checking in for a night at Cabra Castle. Yes, we spent the night in a real Irish castle.
