One of my favourite excursions on our trip to Ireland was our visit to the Cliffs of Moher. If you’ve seen Princess Bride (best movie of all time btw…) you’ll recognize this sight as the cliff that Wesley climbed up to rescue Buttercup.
We visited the cliffs while residing in Galway (an amazing city in itself) the morning after we left Dublin. The bus ride to Galway was hell and a half (we may or may not have been too hungover to function – it was our last night out in Dublin!) but once we arrived and found our hostel, we headed off straight for the cliffs.
The tour guide on our bus was an adorable Irish man, who made the two and a half hour excursion so much fun.
We stopped in a little town, at a pub called O’Connor’s (my grandmother’s maiden name – can you tell she was Irish??) for lunch.
The bus ride was amazing, all the beautiful hills and greenery were so nice to look at. Lots of sheep as well…
Once we got there we started hiking up and when I say hiking I don’t mean a strenuous workout – it was a slight incline. But once you got to the top, it was totally worth it. It’s one of those sights that can’t even be captured on film, to really see it and appreciate it, you must visit.
Hope you all get a chance to see the Cliffs of Moher sometime in your life!
