Cliffs of Moher - Ireland


After we trespassed on private land to shoot the Cliffs of Moher away from the mass of tourists and paid parkings, we arrived right at the edge and went all the way down to the ocean. It was a very windy and stormy weather, it felt quite creepy to be there, alone.

The Cliffs of Moher (Aillte an Mhothair in Irish) are located on the west coast of Ireland, south of the Burren and around the area of Doolin (which is a very charming little town).
These vertiginous cliffs have a maximum height of 214 meters (702 feet) above sea level. It is often a very  rainy area with strong winds coming from the Atlantic Ocean.
It is a very impressive place to visit but I'd suggest to avoid the touristic area and go wander around to find a spot to sneak in and really appreciate the power of Nature concentrated on that area.

Of course, be careful not to get too close!

I remember standing on the cliffs just south of Doolin, watching the Atlantic come crashing in and just thinking about the people who live over on the arran isles and the treacherous crossing thay had to make to the mainland.
Had great fish and chips at the bar in Doolin and listened to real Irish fiddle playing. great memories. Also loved the wild horses of the Burren.

Thank you!

Yes, that area around Doolin and the cliffs is really beautiful and magical. I also loved the Dingle ring.
