How to Get There

Hi guys, another day in Dublin and today I'm not gonna explore the city but I want to go to outside of Dublin. Can guess where I wanna go? Yes, I wanna go to the famous Cliff of Moher. Because it's my first time, I decide to take tour from Dublin. This tour take 12 hours, so I still can stay in Dublin. This tour is start from 7 am, so sfter breakfast at hotel I directly go to the meeting point of this tour. Cliff of Moher is located in Liscannor, County Clare, ireland and about 3 hours trip from Dublin and from my bus, I can see many amazing view.

What to Do

Arriving there, I have to walk about 8 kilo metres from the car park. Cliff of Moher rise 214 metres above the sea was listed as an UNESCO recognised Global and European Geopark in 2011. To the North, there's O'Brien's Tower which was built as an observation tower by Cornelius O'Brien. This tower is the only building in this panorama.

The cliffs are home to the largest colony of seabirds on mainland Ireland, if we come during nesting season (April to July), you'll see seabirds flocking around.

Most of the cliff edges are lined with grass, but there's one point as the north end where a smooth, rock surface allows visitors to stand scarily close to the edge.

I know it looks scary but trust me the view is amazing. I could spend a whole day by sitting and starring the view of paddocks, sparkling water and the blue sky. What a breathtaking view.

For more information about the tour, you can check it here. Entrance fee to this place is about €6 for adults, €4 for students and free for children under 16 years old. If you wanna go to O'Brien's Tower, the entrance fee about €2 for adults and €1 for children. Because I already take tour, so all of the admission fee are included. 

The view is amazing and don't forget to bring camera for capture every corner of this place. Wear comfortable shoes and jacket because you're gonna trekking about 8 kilometres away. You don't have to worry if you get hungry or thirsty in this place because you can find some cafes and shops in the visitors center.
