It might be a country that has some believing in small fairies, but the Emerald Isle proudly boasts that they have the highest cliffs in all of Europe. The Cliffs of Moher reign supreme near the tiny seaside village of Doolin. It is here that you can enjoy the magical appeal that Ireland has to offer. Come with Coconut Club Vacations as we take a closer look at this stunning natural wonder.
The Cliffs of Moher are one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Ireland. They soar an astonishing 702 feet high and spread out over a vast eight miles. They are incredibly easy to get to as they are only five miles from quaint Doolin. You can drive yourself, hop on the bus, or even take a ferry. The Cliffs of Moher dramatically sit along the Atlantic Ocean. From the top you can see as the staunch sides are pummeled with waves and crash at the base. If you want the best view of the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding countryside, hike up to the highest point of the cliffs. O’Brien’s Tower is the very highest point, and has a lookout. You will be simply amazed.
After a long day of hiking and taking in nature you might find yourself a wee bit thirsty. Luckily for you you’re in Ireland, and the one thing there is no shortage of here are pubs. The most famous pub in Doolin is O’Connor’s. Pop in for a pint and perhaps a Jameson’s or a Bushmill’s, and bite into a tasty basket of fish and chips. It’s a great way to end the day of a truly unique only in Ireland experience.
In this magical country you might question how the stunning Cliffs of Moher came to be. The obvious answer would be erosion. However, you are on the Emerald Isle and they love to weave a tale. You might here it was giant, or perhaps a million fairy sprites. But it will never be such an obvious choice of environmental change. Where’s your imagination after all?
