Cliffs of Moher

After Killarney, we took the train to Ennis to see the Cliffs of Moher.  It was a busy day.  We caught a train to Mallow then another to Limerick, then finally to Ennis.  Next, we hurried to our hostel to drop off our bags before returning to the train station to catch a 50 minute bus to the Cliffs of Moher.  We had a little under 3 hours at the Cliffs before the final bus back.

The Cliffs are pretty impressive:

Also, we liked this sign (to throw in a little CSI: Creative Sign Interpretation)
No walking on fire while admiring birds!

Ireland has been so dry for quite a while that this is the result (our shoes are normally black):
This was great for us because the weather was truly amazing.  How often do people get a clear blue sky at the Cliffs of Moher?  Not very often.  It was actually too hot - probably 85 or so - with no shade in sight.  We suffered through it, though.  :)


  1. That sign is definitely a different looks like the stick figure is coming out to get you! Your creative interpretation is great, because I'm really not sure at all what it's really supposed to mean. The Irish have stumped me!

    1. If I had taken a picture that included more of the surroundings, it might have made sense. It's pasted on the wall under an area with lots of grass that ends in a cliff. I think it means "don't climb on the grassy area to chase/view the birds because you'll fall off the cliff."
