Last stop, the Cliffs of Moher.
Since I had a flight later this day, we made sure to get to the Cliffs as soon as they opened (and yes, technically they open and close). If you do ever go, I highly suggest this strategy. First of all the parking people were super confused so we got in for free and secondly the paths are pretty narrow so it’s much easier when no one is around. Also in our case, it didn’t start raining until we were almost done our hike.
|The first included many stairs|
The cliffs take their name from an old promontory fort called Mothar or Moher, which once stood on Hag's Head, the southernmost point of the cliffs, now the site of Moher Tower. This is the point we hiked to.
Even though they are a huge tourist attraction – it is totally worth the visit, they are breathtaking! Plus they are also the site of the “Cliffs of Insanity” in the Princess Bride so what's not to love! I will let the photos speak for themselves . . .
