Day 7: Cliffs of Moher
Crossing places off the list of Top Tourist Destinations like it's our job, we hit the Cliffs of Moher, also known as the CLIFFS OF INSANITY (high five for solid Princess Bride reference!), next. It costs money to enter the main way, but luckily we ran into some other chill roadtrippers/campers who let us privy on a little side road from whence one can hike. Also luckily because the hike was probably the coolest part.
I found the cliffs themselves to be a bit of a disappointment, but I am privileged enough to be jaded. They are indeed tall, although I suspect they really only pass as INSANITY from the bottom looking up. Maybe give a boat tour a whirl if you've got a bit of extra budget. Otherwise, if you've been driving around the Irish coast or after staring off into the sunny ocean horizon from the Aran Islands, it can seem a bit more same-old same-old, like when you check out a new German brewery in the hopes it will be new and exciting! but actually it's just more of the same.
