At the Edge of Ireland: A Visit to the Cliffs of Moher


There’s nothing like standing on the edge of a cliff to clear your head.

One must-see tourist attraction on Ireland’s west coast, a hotspot in beautiful County Clare, are the Cliffs of Moher.

Remember that epic cave scene in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince? Filmed there!

I was shocked at the sheer size of the cliffs. We’ve all seen pictures, so I had an idea of what I was about to see. But when you stand on one side and look across the water to another, the people look miniature.


There is an option to hike the entire way along the cliffs, which can take several hours to a whole day, but we only had enough time to check out the view. After having visited though, it’s on my list to go back and do the full tour.

You can reach the site by tour bus, though I’m really not how based on the size of the roads, or you can drive yourself. There is no better way to get a feel for the countryside than on the wrong side of the road, twisting quickly in and around tiny country lanes lined with beautiful stone walls. Drive slowly!

I recently heard this quote: “The business of life is the acquisition of memories.” This visit was an amazing moment on the bucket list of life.
