County Clare and the Cliffs of Moher

 We departed the beautiful village and drove northwest
across County Clare to Lahinch on the coast. 
Lahinch (Lehinch), a seaside resort, is a popular with vacationers, golfers and surfers.  


We continued 6 miles north along the coast of County Clare 
to the amazing Cliffs of Moher. Ireland's most visited natural attraction.
O'Brien's Tower in the background was built in 1835 by Cornelius O'Brien,
of Bunratty Castle fame, to encourage tourists.  
 

 


 The visitor center is built into the hillside and contains a large gift shop, 
restrooms and a tea room.  The structure is a unique cave like structure
which minimizes the visual impact of the fabulous scenic location.
 Hiking paths and the cliffs go on for miles. 
Traditional Irish music was being played along the pathways.
