While in Galway, I took a day trip to see the Cliffs of Moher. I also wanted to nip across to Aran Islands, but unfortunately, not many tours operate to the islands before summer. Instead, the tour I went on included stops at the Burren and Ailwee Cave before the cliffs. Ailwee Cave was amazing, I didn’t even know about it while planning my trip, so I’m glad I ended up spending 30 minutes in a dark earthy cavern.
After the cave, we were off to the main event. The Cliffs of Moher! It started raining whilst I was at the edge of the cliffs, which given Ireland, isn’t a massive surprise. The mist and drizzle added a little atmosphere to the scenery. They have a really great visitors centre stuck in the side of the hill for shelter, with a few smaller independent shops alongside.
The trip back to Galway went along the coastline, which was stunning and rocky and wild. We stopped for a photo at Dunguaire Castle. I’d fallen asleep on the way and felt super disoriented when I jumped off the bus. The day after, I headed back to Dublin to fly home to London, which was quite a journey.
What a way to spend a week. Good times, Ireland.
