What is the first picture you are having in your head when you think about Ireland?

Is it the Cliffs of Moher?

The steep 300m high cliffs at the west coast of the island? Pretty sure many of you said yes.

It’s the scenic spot you will see on most postcards and pictures and they are stunning, so it’s totally understandable.

Today I will try a different kind of post…Instead of my usual blabla I will show you more pictures and in the end you 5 things you should know about traveling to the cliffs of Moher.

Enjoy 😉

Doolin Port -Check it out in the evening when you arrive or after your hike, before going to the pub. Total different landscape there, just have a look for yourself^^

Be cautious the area is tricky, there are holes covered with grass and stones can come loose- Don’t do anything stupid…

See that’s what I mean, don’t do anything stupid, even if it is a perfect picture opportunity. Careful around the tourist center are loads of people, it can get very crowded.

Lastly treat yourself to some good food in one of the pubs and come back for some awesome life music in the evening, the area is famous for the music, especially Doolin.

Where to stay?

Doolin if you are a Backpacker, there is a bus and they have a couple of Hostels, but book ahead during summer season! Doolin is also where the hike along the cliffs starts, but if you have a car other villages will be more relaxed and less likely booked out.

Other important information:

  • There are no supermarkets in Doolin, buy everything you need before arriving there. The next tiny shop is a 3km walk.
  • From Doolin you also can take trips to the Burren, this weird alien-like landscape.
  • When hiking around the cliffs, be careful, there are holes under the grass and the ground sometimes gives in a bit. Step lightly and hope for the best 😉
  • I’ll say it again, go to the Pub and enjoy the lifemusic, you could be lucky and somebody famous will be playing.
  • Doolin is a great starting point to take the ferry to the Aran Islands

 

Hope you liked the information, why not leave a comment or share if you did =)

Even if you didn’t, feedback is always good 😉
