Cliffs of Moher

We went to the Cliffs of Moher with Galway tour company. It was the whole day tour.

First we took a ride through Burren. Burren is a national park.

There we visited the Poulnabrone dolmen – a portal tomb.

We were driving through beautiful nature. Some places looked like you are on another planet.

We stopped in Doolin to have a lunch. We did that in O’Connors pub.

I really liked Doolin. It’s a cute little village. If I ever go back to Ireland (and I hope I will) I will definitely stay there for a few days.

You can walk from Doolin to the Cliffs. If you like walking like I do, because it takes about 1,5-2 hours.

I know that to some people 20 minute walk is too long.

When I was in Liverpool and I asked for direction, a girl told me to take a taxi because it is very far. When I asked how far, she said 30 min.

I walked 🙂

After lunch and some photos we went to the Cliffs of Moher.

The cliffs  are among the top visited tourist sites in Ireland  and receive almost one million visitors a year.

The cliffs have appeared in several films like Harry Potter and Leap Year.

The highest point of the Cliffs is 214 m high.

They are beautiful. I’m just sorry that we didn’t spend as much time as would like there.

So if you like the nature and want to spend more than 1-2 hours there you can take the bus.

Bus Eireann operates up to 5 services a day in the summer each way every day between Ennis and Galway.

We enjoyed our time there and made lots of photos.

We got back to Galway around 7 PM and went again to McDonagh’s for a dinner. My husband tried  the haggis.

I took some from him, but it’s not really my kind of food.

Although it is similar to something we eat in my country. I had some salmon.

We went for a pint of Guinness and then to bed.

We were very happy to see that we have some new roommates, 4 French girls.

And they were quiet so we all had a good night sleep . 🙂

That was our last night in Galway.
