Be sure not to miss climbing to the top of the cliffs' mini castle.
Oh, Ireland. From its captivating, craggy coastlines to its alluring, pristine landscapes, there is no denying this European island in the North Atlantic is one of the most special places to visit in the world. And while the entire country oozes with enchantment, if you want to experience real magic, you've got to make your way to the infamous Cliffs of Moher.
When my husband and I were plotting our itinerary for exploring Ireland, I demanded — in the nicest way possible, of course! — these cliffs make the cut. Because how can you venture around the Irish countryside and not make the five-hour-out-of-the-way drive to these majestic cliffs? Am I right? As you can probably guess, our journey was a bit long — especially along the narrow, bumpy, countryside roads — but oh so worth it. Taking in the views from this natural wonder was one of the most surreal moments I have ever experienced, to say the least. So if an Irish adventure is in your near future, or simply on your life bucket list, I highly recommend squeezing in time for the Cliffs of Moher. No matter the length of the drive, you won't regret it. Just take a look for yourself . . .
