Cliffs of Moher | Photo Diary

Last month I went away for a weekend and although I spent most of it with family, I went on a trip to visit the sights of the West of Ireland and I thought I'd share some photo's with everyone. Ireland, where I'm from has some of the prettiest sights there is to see. It has a huge amount of green land and amazing landscapes and coastal sights as well as lot of heritage and history sights. I really love it, it's always so peaceful and calm. Here's a photo diary of some of the pretty sights I've seen on my recent travels.



I was on a guided tour bus from Galway city to the Cliffs of Moher and it stopped by in the Ailwee Caves and a little village called Doolin. The tour was along the coast of the North Atlantic ocean, which is what the above photos are of. This beach was along the coast of Galway and it was super pretty once the sun came out. The waves on this side of the island are huge and I'd never seen big waves before so it was pretty cool to see them clash against the rocks.




The Cliff's of Moher themselves are Ireland's most visited attraction and probably one of the world's most famous cliffs, plus some of Harry Potter is filmed here, how amazing? Unfortunately, the day I visited it rained constantly and it was so cloudy, it was so disappointing but I was still super taken a-back by the breathtaking view. Although the cliffs were a lot smaller than I expected it was still stunning. Near the cliffs there is a visitors centre packed full of information and lots of things to keep tourists busy especially on days where it's rainy, which is probably most of the time. I loved it there and the air was so fresh I would love to revisit on a sunny day and see what it's like then and maybe walk along the coast line a little bit more.


    

 

On the return back to Galway city where I was staying we were told historical anecdotes by our super lovely tour guide which were nice to hear and also see the heritage at the same time. The hotel I stayed in was right in the heart of Galway city which is so beautiful also. I got to see the sun set over Galway bay every night, which was so pretty once again, as you can see. The meal pictured above was from a pub in the city centre and it was amazing, we ate there both days of the stay as it was so nice. It was a very traditionally Irish pub and I got to talk to some lovely people up there also.

I would really recommend going on a trip around the sights of Ireland if you've never been as they are really beautiful, despite the rain. The photo's really don't do the scenes enough justice. 

Has anyone ever traveled Ireland or been to the Cliff's of Moher before?
