Cliffs of Moher Ireland

The Cliffs of Moher are located close to Liscannor at the West Coast of Ireland. The sign warns visitors clearly to be cautious, because "very dangerous cliffs" are ahead. And this is absolutely true...


Postcard Cliffs of Moher

Though we were quite late that day, we still had enough light for a number of good shots, even good enough for postcards like this one. Okay, this is the standard postcard photo of the Cliffs of Moher. I could not resist either.


Cliffs of Moher

The cliffs are really steep, so steep that people crawl to the edge and lie down to take a look! And the cracks do not provide a feeling of stability.

From the distance you can see how dangerous the Cliffs of Moher really are!

Dangerous Cliffs of Moher

This photo provides proof that young people seem to be not afraid of anything! There is nothing that would prevent a fall (and thus major injuries or even death), should something happen. But look at these guys - they should be scared like hell, but they simply look down to observe how the waves crash towards the cliffs. Brave or stupid?

The Burren

The Burren is an area where rocks come up everywhere. This way, the area has kept its nature almost untouched. At least it is hard to have industrialized agriculture here.

Dolmen, Co. Clare

All of a sudden, you see a Dolmen within all the rocks. Nobody exactly knows how our ancestors did the trick of moving the top plate up, but they did!


Dungaire Castle

On your way to Galway, we recommend a stop at Dungaire Castle, which is still intact and definitely worth a visit!

Medieval Dinner at Dungaire Castle

If you have some spare time, why not stay and enjoy a medieval dinner at Dungair Castle? The dinner hall looks promising enough!
