After our ferry landed back at the port of Doolin we climbed back on the coach and headed south to see the Cliffs of Moher from a top down perspective, and this is what it looked like. A spectacular and striking phenomenon and as the Irish say, “it takes the talk away from you”. There is a fence to protect visitors but many ignore it. Towards the top left of the first photo below you can see that a couple of people have climbed over the fence and in the third photo you can see that more have gone over to the very edge.
On the coach again for the trip back to Galway, we stopped twice more at picturesque spots as we traversed the Burren and at Ballyvaughan. The last photo shows old cottages which are still lived in today, built using traditional methods. Note the satellite receiver dishes, cleverly hand-thatched by Irish artisans using very fine reeds.
