Traveling: Bunratty Castle and Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

My favorite day in Ireland! After days of rain and more rain, we finally had some sunshine for the highlight of the trip. We first stopped at Bunratty Castle, which is not a big deal at all, except that it was built by the MacNamara’s in 1400’s, which happens to be my future husband’s ancestors. So after we get married, can I claim the castle and become a princess???

We arrived at Cliffs of Moher: just spectacular and breathtaking. Miles and miles of cliffs and sidewalks to explore. I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

On our way out we also stopped at The Burren, which is a cliff side area that looks like a lunar landscape, then at Corcomroe Abbey to see a skull and bones under a tomb.  We also tried to go to 16th century Dunguaire Castle, but since we spent so much time at Cliffs of Moher, when we did arrive, it was already closed. That’s okay though, at that point I was already getting tired of so many medieval castles!
