We were supposed to meet Angela and Amanda at 9:30am but they had some trouble with the rental car and we could not drive together to the Cliffs of Moher. It took us around an hour to get to the cliffs from Bunratty. I highly recomend to rent a GPSā¦It is so easy to get to places in time with thatā¦ still donĀ“t know how I could live without it in the past!
We drove straight from Bunratty to Liscannor and from there we went north towards Doolin.
Once we visited the Castle we went down hill and then we started going up the other side (left). There was a moment where we found a āNon trespassing signā but we kept going. At the distance we saw another castle, and to tell you the truth it seemed to be quite closeā¦ so we started heading to itā¦ shoot! We walked for almost an hour, so I guess that it was almost 6kms from the starting pointā¦.
Another option I would recommend is to go there during sunset. We were quite lucky as the day was very sunny. Try to avoid going there on a cloudy or rainy day, as you will miss a lot!
Well, the walk took us almost two and Ā½ hours so by the time we finished we were starving! From there we went to Doolin to have lunch! We checked the Lonely Planet to choose a restaurant.
Around 3 oāclock we turned on our GPS and we headed Dublin! Damn! The roads were so bad during most of the wayā¦ again it took us for ever to cross from side to side. As we had no hotel for that night, we started calling all hotels listed in our Lonely Planet. Most of the hotels were fully booked so we had to stay in a pricy hotel. The building was beautiful as it was a beautiful Victorian House. I am attaching a review!
Once we got there we took a shower and we headed towads Temple Bar. What a fun place! It was Saturday night and everything was crazy! Tons of people in the pubs, walking in the streets, hen parties all over the placeā¦ shit! I am moving to Dublin hahahah
