0 Ireland! Cliffs of Moher, Countryside, Coastline

Of course, we had to see  the famous Cliffs of Moher.  The visitor's center is overrated and not worth the time it takes to walk through it- better to spend your time walking along the cliffs.  The wind is powerful, but the views are as well.

I've read that livestock have the best views in Ireland- these cows certainly aren't missing out!

She wanted her picture taken.

The Burren is a geographical formation known as a "karst" landscape, meaning an area "shaped by the dissolution of a layer or layers of soluble bedrock." (thanks, Wikipedia!) The land is striking in the contrast of the green valleys and the stark grey hills above.

The Atlantic Coast next to our B&B.

Nice little beach enclave, if it hadn't been freezing!
