Shamrocker All Ireland Rocker Day 5: The Mini Cliffs of Moher!

Leaving Galway behind, I was extremely excited to be finally getting to the Cliffs of Moher on Day 5 of our All Ireland Rocker Tour! This was probably the most anticipated part of the tour for me! Driving along, Ireland didn’t disappoint – giving us some beautiful views of the countryside.

Proof that Ireland is actually all green!

Getting closer to the Cliffs, our tour guide Gillian said we would be making a small stop before arriving at our destination. I honestly didn’t want another stop, I wanted to get to the Cliffs! But, after stopping and seeing what we saw, I’m glad we took the time!

We stopped at what is known as the “Mini Cliffs of Moher!”

Mood Setting Scenery

The landscape here was already changing and there were more rocky surfaces rather than arable farmland!

Similar to the Aran Islands, rocky surfaces are evident here

Clearly this rocky land would make for some beautiful scenery and Mini Cliffs!

People started building with the rocks!

If you are on your way to the Cliffs, do make a stop here and you won’t be disappointed.

Rock, Water, Sunshine!

The area is not as touristy and if you are lucky, you may or may not be the only people here taking pictures and enjoying the scenery.

Enjoying the View

 

From the Mini Cliffs you also get a teasing glance at the actual Cliffs in the distance!

Can you spot the Cliffs?

We spent some time taking photographs and enjoying the sunshine while exploring some of the rocky landscape.

Nothing better than a picture on the edge of a cliff

After having our fill of selfies and scenic photographs, Gillian rounded us all up and we climbed back aboard our bus and onto our final destination:

THE CLIFFS OF MOHER!!!

Stay tuned!
