We just finished a great Ireland trip. Our travel guide was wonderful. Food and accommodation were also great. We have seen many places in Ireland, but The Cliffs of Moher and Grafton Street in Dublin are really significant. So many superlatives have been applied to explain these majestic cliffs it's difficult to find the right words. Beautiful and inspiring spring to mind and they are really both of these things as well as being completely wild and ruggedly attractive. For those who've viewed on the Emerald Isle prior to traveling, the cliffs will be familiar, starring as they do in countless postcards and guidebooks. Yet no image can ever do them justice. This is Ireland's most traveled natural charm and with good reason. About one and a half hours by car from Galway, in neighboring County Clare, the cliffs are toured by close to a million travelers from across the globe every year. They stretch for eight kilometers along the Atlantic and mount some 214 meters at their highest point. Take a walk along the tracks to experience the raw energy of nature at its most majestic.
So much more than a shopping street, Grafton Street is bustling with buskers, flower-sellers, and concert artists. You will also spot many places to stop off and just watch the world meander by.
