Enjoyed a great day  with Wild Rover Tours  to see the Cliffs of  Moher in County Clare, Ireland.


This row of 5  are best known as the Cliffs of Moher but there are other cliffs on Ireland’s Atlantic coast  also.   These are 700 feet high at the tallest point and altogether  5 miles long.  The lighting  wasn’t the best  that  morning  for photos in this direction.



But  with the sun behind me, the cliffs  that sat  opposite were an incredible sight.


O’Brien’s Tower, built in 1835, sat atop.


More cliffs and lots of walking.


In the visitor’s center, the local flavor shows off in their ice cream.  Brown Bread ice cream for anyone?


During the day  tour, we also stopped in an area called the Burren, which is very rocky but also known for the diverse flowers that grow there.


More of the Burren.


During the drive, there were  still a few  thatch roof houses  to be seen.


This was a typical little Irish village we rode through.


Also there are  many castle ruins that spot the countryside.  Our driver  mentioned  a  count of  about 2000  today.


Our Wild Rover driver was excellent navigating these narrow, winding roads.  But these three  vehicles made for a interesting  few minutes as they had to rethink and rearrange  their position as they blocked the street  for all.

It was a great day with Wild Rover , plus  Ireland’s  countryside is so beautiful  with its greenery, ruins, little towns, cattle and sheep grazing and the  view of the  blue Atlantic Ocean as a back drop for all.

Thanks for reading!

    Absolutely amazing! It looks so Ireland I guess. At last what I would picture. Enjoy the rest of your time away. Did I have to remind you?
