Wandering Wednesday - Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

The Cliffs of Moher are a well known natural attraction in Ireland and so when road tripping through this very green country earlier this year, we naturally had to take a look for ourselves. We arrived late in the afternoon after checking into our B&B just minutes down the road in Doolin. After taking a walk along the well paved and fenced section, we did what most others were doing and jumped the fence to take a walk further up on the cliffs - the perfect spot for sunset shots according to my photo mad husband.



It was a lovely viewpoint but we didn't last too long there - being a grand 120m above the sea, the wind was bitterly cold and our teeth were chattering away within minutes. After finding a slightly more sheltered spot to wait out the sunset, I can see the icy cold winds were actually worthwhile - the light on these huge cliffs at that time of day was magnificent and seeing the sun set over the sea is always a novelty.




The Cliffs of Moher were definitely worth a visit to while in Ireland, although I can't say I ever need to go again. Ireland was so green and beautiful, but I think that for me, once is enough in a lifetime... Too many other places to visit, too little time...
