I’m back today with blog post 4 of 4 for our Ireland trip. This post covers our last day on the trip where we did a bus tour that took us out to the Cliffs of Moher, the Wild Atlantic Way and a stop in the seaside down of Galway City. This tour was a LONG one, it took 13 hours total and we flew out the next morning to go home. But, I am glad we did it even though it was a tiring day… the Cliffs of Moher were like nothing I had ever seen before and it was a great closure to our time in Ireland.
I had this really cute outfit planned for the day… but, once we got to the cliffs, it was SOOO windy and cold!!! So, I switched to a beanie hat and I had my windbreaker on. We were joking I was going to parachute off the cliffs. Before we loaded the bus for the long drive to the cliffs, they gave us the option of getting breakfast at Starbucks (it was right by the bus loading dock). I saw this on the wall inside the Starbucks and it made me think of my Autumn (my daughter) at home. Aww! The Starbucks at Dublin were a little different and they had some different fall drink choices.
We drove by a lot of various castles on the way to the cliffs. It was unreal! They were all just right off the highway. We drove by a fairy house too and I wish I had gotten a picture. It was hard to take photos in the bus, we would drive by everything so fast.
When we got to the Cliffs of Moher, there was a museum and two different ways you could walk up to see them. The first way that we walked took us up to a tower and there was also a farm with some cows.
We walked up to see O’ Briens Tower, but we didn’t wait to go inside it. It is a pretty steep climb with a lot of steps to get up to it.
Everything is so green in Ireland! Here are some cows we saw in a pasture on our walk up.
There was spotty rain while we were at the cliffs, but it never actually rained on us. I think it rained when we were inside the museum, though. We spotted a rainbow in the distance, how beautiful!
Just a couple more photos of the beauty of the Cliffs of Moher.
There were some souvenir shops on our way back to the bus. I had these necklaces made to take home. He twisted the wire right in front of us and made them, so cool!
After the Cliffs of Moher we drove through the Wild Atlantic Way, which is a coastal route that takes you to a fishing town called Galway. We stopped in Galway and they gave us a couple hours to look around and to have lunch. We ate at the Kings Head and I enjoyed scallops (of course!).
We got back to the hotel around 9:00 p.m. and ordered some room service. We got some various items on the menu, but pictured here is a tomato salad and a dessert plate. Yum! Anyway, that is a WRAP on our trip! Thanks for following along!
