Sunday Snapshot: Cliffs of Moher

On the southwestern edge in the famed County Clare lies one of Ireland’s top natural attractions, the Cliffs of Moher. As one of Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions, many visitors to Emerald Isle have seen the magnificent vistas of the Irish countryside and coast that are afforded at the maximum height of 702 feet. While it feels like you are at the edge of the world, I was fortunate enough to visit on a clear June afternoon and got a glimpse of the Aran Islands and Galway Bay.

  1. I almost made it to the Cliffs of Moher one year! I was travelling with friends in a campervan and we ran out of time (we started down at Cork) It almost cost me a friendship! πŸ™‚

    • I can imagine that you ran out of time! There is so much to see in Ireland. I was there for 12 days and still did not feel like I had enough time to see everything! I hope that you make it back to see the Clliffs (and still retained your friendship).

    We went to the Cliffs on a very foggy day! As the saying goes…you can’t see your hand in front of your face! We couldn’t! I purchased a picture postcard in the gift shop as a memento of what we couldn’t see! If or when we go back I would love to go on a clear day. The tour we were on was great, our timing was bad!

    • That is incredible! It is a shame that you did not get the views, but I am glad the postcard gave you an idea of what it looks like on a clear day. I hope you make it back some day – the Cliffs are certainly something to see. Thanks for reading!

    • Beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing. I cannot believe there was snow on the ground when you were there. I guess that explains why you almost got blown away!
