Day trip number two. While Casey and I were on the first tour to Northern Ireland, we couldn't decide if the trip to the Cliffs would be worthwhile. Her friend staying for the weekend, and along for the tour had suggested that where we were was close enough to the same experience. When the time in Ireland started dwindling down, we saw the weather would be great, and decided to visit the Cliffs. We knew we would regret it otherwise!
Like the last trip, they made sure to include multiple random stops to see more of the area, and fill time. This cute little village was full of color and adorable shops.
The second stop was what they called the "baby cliffs", I think to prepare us for the real ones, and get used to being close to the edge, teaching us not to fall over and die. . . I guess people do that.
I got close, but I remembered to give my sister my camera so I could get some high quality of me :)
Once everyone returned to the bus, we stopped for lunch at Doolin, a nearby village. The meal spot was far away from the main area with the cute buildings, so I gave up on trying to get photos of the funky pink house they advertise when you google "Doolin". The bus driver said it was a 15 minute walk, and our lunch break only lasted 30.
Cliffs of Moher were up next. It was breathtaking!
As we were walking along, a bird was flying around a group of tourists, staying midair and levitating for the cameras. What a little attention whore.
One thing I noticed traveling through Ireland was the house driveways. I'm assuming they were placed right next to the house for the sake of the weather and perhaps foundation solidarity, but it was unusual and I was happy to get a decent photo for posterity!
