Hey beautiful people,
It’s been a while since I posted in this section of the blog and it’s not because I don’t love travelling anymore. But the last few times I have travelled it’s been hard to incorporate it into the blog for some reason! However, I do feel that as Irish people we seem to forget that thousands of tourist come from all over the world to visit our country- Ireland as a tourist. I will have to do a post one day and how we can underestimate the beauty within our own vicinity but for now, let’s keep it as simple as this. I decided to take a trip to Ireland, firstly I needed a quick break and It thought it was the time I became a tourist. So last weekend, I went to Co. Clare. The weather I have to say was something else without being too negative but we planned that this was the day the trip was happening so I went ahead anyway! I visited the Cliff of Moher which is located on the west coast of Ireland, close to Liscannor village in County Clare.
Honestly, the Cliffs of Moher is a place one would have to visit to understand the beauty. No matter how beautifully descriptive I write this post or how beautiful these images may appear it still is not enough to capture how magical this place is! I was lucky to have walked on both sides of the landscape to view the cliff from different perspectives, it was just amazing.
Because of the day, (it was raining all day) I wore leggings, a top and two jackets and a scarf. I know I look decent in these pictures but let me tell you, I layered up. I spoke about how I have recently started layering up to beat the cold in my previous post(click here)
Facts on the Cliff of Moher.
- The name of the cliff came from a ruined promontory fort – ‘Mothar’, which was demolished during the Napoleonic wars in the early 1800’s, to make room for a signal tower at Hag’s Head. The word ‘Mothar’is actually an old Irish word meaning ‘the ruin of a fort’.
- The Cliffs stretch for 8km (5 miles) as the crow flies.
- From the top of the Cliff, you can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, the Twelve Pins and the Maum Turk mountains in Connemara and the Dingle Peninsula and Blasket Islands in Kerry, I thought I’d share for those of you who are interested in touring other parts of Ireland. I heard the Aaron Island is nice actually might be our next stop!
