The Cliffs of Moher and the Burren // Travel with me

After spending a few days in Northern Ireland, I took a coach down to Dublin, where I spent a couple of days last year. This time, I didn’t go there to explore the city some more (even though I definitely could’ve!). Instead, I went on a tour to the west of Ireland, which is famous for its rugged coastline and landscapes.

The Cliffs of Moher

The first stop on the tour were the Cliffs of Moher. These were formed over 300 million years ago and you can see bands of sandstone, siltstone, and shale in the paving of the cliffs.

The cliffs stretch out for 8 km (5 miles) and reach a height of 214 meters (702 feet). A great place to go for a day-long hike!

As you can see from the pictures, the weather was absolutely amazing. As always, I would recommend going here early, before all the tourists show up because it does get really busy.

The Burren

After seeing the Cliffs of Moher, we drove through the Burren towards Galway. This is a very interesting area along the coastline of Ireland. There is hardly any grass, no trees. The entire area is covered in limestone and, in the summer, tropical plants and flowers that come up from between the stones.

A famous quote about the Burren:

“of this barony it is said that it is a country where there is not water enough to drown a man, wood enough to hang one, nor earth enough to bury them.”


Have you ever seen the Cliffs of Moher or the Burren? What did you think?
