Ireland Photo Tour 

Monday August 19th, 2013

A great day of photography at the Cliffs of Moher.  We left our hotel early this morning to get to the cliffs ahead of the crowds of people that enjoy the spectacular view of the coast.  We then spent the morning and into early afternoon exploring the cliffs and their trails as we enjoy a perfect sky day.  

 We stopped for lunch in the quaint village of Dooley, then some afternoon photography along the coast and at Black Head Point.

This evening we enjoyed two celebrations at dinner wishing Bob and Gail Steer a happy 35th wedding anniversary and Jette Collins a very happy birthday.

Enjoy the selection of images from our travels around the Galway region today.  Tomorrow morning we depart to travel further north to Sligo we will be visiting an old castle ruins and Kylemore Abby as we journey.

Good night from Galway, Ireland.

I’ve heard about walking your dog before breakfast but this is ridiculous, imagine the size of the scoop bag he carries around.


Driving along the coast.

Welcome to the cliffs ...


Cliffs of Moher visitors centre, the entire structure is built into the slide of the cliffs.  It was completed in 2007 at a cost of 32 million euros.


Walking along the cliffs, what a beautiful morning.
