A walk along The Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher in County Clare quite often makes the news, sometimes for good things like it’s views and wildlife and sometimes for tragic accidents due to the sheer nature of the cliffs. It is equally both alluring and scary at the same time. As Ireland’s most visited natural attraction it is often at the top of lists of what to see in Ireland.
