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.
