Easter Break-Day 5

Cliffs of Moher and Onward to County Donegal

The Cliffs of Moher are located on the west coast of Ireland in the county of Clare. They stretch for five miles and rise 650 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. We stopped for a visit on our way to Donegal. The visitors center is inside the hill and had some fun 3-D films of flying over the cliffs.
Just in case you forget...Actually, I guess many have misjudge the edge of the cliffs and have tumbled over!

The O'Brien's Tower was built in 1853 and marks the highest point of the cliffs. The view from this point was breathtaking.

I guess it's normal to not heed the warning signs?

After our visit to the cliffs we headed to our little cottage in Dongal. It was a five and half hour car ride but well worth the drive.
