Having planned and financed my trip to Europe independently, every smooth journey feels like a personal success. Every time I arrive to a new city safely or navigate to a local attraction efficiently, I smile with a sense of accomplishment. There have been a few places in particular that have elicited that combination of awe and accomplishment. Some sights are so beautiful that you can’t help but think “wow, I have dreamt about traveling here and I’m actually freaking here.” Cliffs of Moher was definitely one of these places.
Through the hostel I stayed at (Barnacle), I booked a one day trip to Cliffs of Moher with Dublin Tour Bus Company. They safely transported us to the cliffs, and our driver/guide in particular was quite witty and hilarious. After we stopped in Doolin for lunch, we were on our way to the beautiful cliffs.
Many people say to pick a sunny day to go, but sometimes you don’t have the flexibility to optimize what day. While it was disappointingly cloudy the day I went, the weather gods must have sensed my dismay and lifted the clouds for a few minutes so I could still grab some pictures. If you are indeed able to pick clearer day to go, do that, but if not, know that fog can come and go quite easily and not to worry.
