The Cliffs of Moher are one of the most outstanding features on the western coast of Ireland, they are located in County Clare, and rise slowly from Doolin toward the south to ascend to over seven hundred feet nearly five miles in length.



The Emerald Isle


The Aran Islands are a group of three islands located in the mouth of Galway Bay and can be reached by ferries from the mainland, from either Doolin in County Clare, which is the shortest route, or from Rossaveal in County Galway.

The cliffs of Moher are breathtaking, with a sheer drop from the heights to the ocean below and the ferry I rode on from Doolin to the Aran Islands gave a nice view from the sea.


The first and furthest east of the three Aran Islands is Inisheer or in the Gaelic tongue Inis Oirr. The ruins of O'Brien's Castle are visible from the ferry stop and was possible built in the 14th century and taken by Cromwellian forces in 1652.


Inis Mòr is a very popular tourist destination with bicycle rentals, horse-drawn carriages and private buses available for use to travel about the island and enjoy the scenery of this rugged island.
