Cliffs Of Moher In County Clare

Are you tired of reading my article about Ireland? Well, I hope not. I hope you will continue reading about my travels to Ireland, as it is the topic I like most to write about. I love writing about Ireland because I have been there and I want to share the amazing places I have seen in the emerald country. It is sometimes called an emerald country for it´s hundred shades of green colours. It varies from days to days, depends on what the weather will be. Summer or winter, rain or shine. There´s no such place like Ireland.

This amazing Cliffs of Moher, Aillte an Mhothair in Gaelic language, is located in County Clare. It is one of the most best tourist attractions in Ireland which ranges about 8 kilometers overlooking the Atlantic ocean and 214 meters high. Tourists from all over the world come to this amazing place by cars and buses with their tourist guides.

Few Hours At Cliffs Of Moher

Our four weeks holiday in the year 2004 in Ireland was the adventurous one because we started our travel from the northwest of Ireland to County Wicklow. On our way to Cliffs of Moher from , we made a short stop at The Burren. The Burren is the most awesome rocky place I have seen in my life. Although it was raining, we were still able to see the rocky place with no trees at all. We just took a few minutes walk around the visitor center and then continued to drive to Cliffs of Moher. It was a pity we had not seen much of The Burren because it was raining cats and dogs.

We stopped by the Cliffs of Moher in going to County Limerick for just a few hours. When we arrived at the Cliffs of Moher, it was still raining hard. Though the weather was bad and very very windy, there were still people from all over the world coming by bus tours or with their own or rented car. I have seen from the tourists what nationality they have by the way they dressed and the languages they were speaking. The Asian or shall I say the Japanese were easy to recognize for there were loads of cameras hanging around their necks. The Germans with their yellow raincoats and boots, prepared for the Irish weather.

When the rain began to stop, my husband and I climbed to the stairs of Cliffs of Moher where we were able to see the dark and cloudy view of the Aran Islands. It could be lovelier if the weather was good because from the cliffs, we could have seen the natural beauty of Aran Islands from the top of the cliffs where O´Briens Tower is situated. But it was awesome for me to climb for I was scared that the wind could push me to the cold and stormy Atlantic ocean. So I was so careful and I was holding my husbands´ arms not to be blown away by the strong atlantic wind .

O´Briens Tower which was built in 1835 by Cornelius O´Brien, is situated at the top of the cliffs. It is the viewing point of the tourists on a fine, clear and sunny days where you can see the beauty in every directions, the southern tip of County Clare, County Kerry mountains, Twelve Bens or the Connemara mountains beyond the Galway Bay.

Although the weather was not so nice as I was expecting, I enjoyed sitting on the grass looking at the overwhelming beauty of The Cliffs of Moher. It is the third cliffs I have seen on our travel. A unique one. Sometimes I asked myself why on earth is Ireland so beautiful. Maybe because it rains more than 200 days a year? Why not? Or maybe because I keep on coming to Ireland and no more time to look for another beautiful country?

As the time had past too fast and we had to go to our next destination which was County Limerick and having an overnight sleep in Adare, we had to say goodbye to the cliffs. Farewell my dear Cliffs of Moher!
