    Cliffs of Moher
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    I will pick you up at 10 am and we will drive through a romantic sea port village named Kinvarra and head towards the famous Burren – a vast limestone plateau formed 320 million years ago. Here you will find Alpine, Arctic and Mediterranean plants growing side-by- side. Soon after we leave Kinvarra, you will see the hills of Burren be amazed by this very unique and unusual landscape. Our first stop will be the Flaggy Shore, a beautiful road with limestone pavements and sculptured rocks along the shores of Galway Bay, with white Burren hills as a backdrop. On a fine day you can even spot the Connemara mountain peaks across the bay. Our journey continues through the harbour village of Ballyvaughan and takes us to the megalithic Poulnabrone Dolmen, situated on one of the highest points of the Burren. We will stop here and take a short walk to this world famous Dolmen. Just a short drive from Poulnabrone is Caherconnell Fort, built in the 10th Century. This is one of the best preserved stone forts in the Burren. After a short walk on the grounds we can enjoy some food and refreshments in the Mountain Haven Cafe. Our next target is Corkscrew Hill, a steep and winding road with spectacular views of the ocean and mountains. After a short stop at the viewing point we head for a hill named Slieve Elva and drive along the winding road almost to the summit. On a clear day, driving from here down towards the ocean and the Wild Atlantic Way near Fanore is very eye-pleasing for sure. Back on the main coastal road, we continue our journey to the Cliffs of Moher. This natural wonder, towering 214 meters above the ocean and stretching eight kilometers along the coast, will take your breath away. Take your time to explore this unique area by walking on the winding trails and pathways along the towering cliffs. Afterwards, we will visit the award winning visitor center with its graphic displays, gift shops and restaurants. We could have a lunch here or on the way back in the rustic Monks Restaurant near Ballyvaughan, in the heart of the Burren. After a full day of grand views and lots of beauty, I hope you will still have some space left in your “beauty storage” as we drive back to Galway along the Wild Atlantic Way. On a fine day it is magical, as the white hills of the Burren turn pink at sunset. As we drive along the winding coast, you’ll have these pink hills on your right and rolling waves of turquoise blue waters on your left – a sight to remember and cherish!
