The Cliffs of Mohher sea cliffs at the southwestern edge of the Burren region of County Clare. The cliffs rise above the Atlantic Ocean and at their highest they are 702 feet just north of O'Brien's Tower.
We traveled to the Cliffs of Moher on the sixth day of our tour in Ireland. It was windy and cool on the day before this stop. If it looked like rain on other days the storms seemed to pass us over. It was not so when we arrive at the cliffs. It was windy, cold and it was raining horizontally! So what I did is resign ourselves to the fact the we'd not be getting any photos here. Well, I was wrong. After lunch and some time spent in the gift shop the storm died down enough so that we were able to walk out to the cliffs. Yes, and photos were a lot of fun to take!
Like many of the places we stopped in Ireland the sites were spectacular. The Cliffs of Moher were no exception.
O'Brien's Tower is a round tower built near the midpoint of the cliffs, built in 1835 by Sir Cornelius O'Brien. From the cliffs and the tower the Aran Islands, Balway Bay, and Loop Head can be seen.
I was another grand day we had on this adventure!
Thanks be to God!
